You’ve seen the Before, so I thought you might like to see the Nitti-gritty of what the hand looks like. If that’s not your thing, feel free close this and go on to something else.
This morning, recently retired, Bob, friend from church offered to take me to the doctor. He said that he had plenty of time. Thank you. He also helped by taking the latest collection of STUFF over to St. John’s Women’s Center while we were out.
The good news is that I don’t have t have surgery, instead I have a bee-u-ti-ful purple cast. I have to go back in three weeks for a check up. My hand is still a bit swollen, so I may have to have it recast when the swelling goes down.
Okay, here’s the pictures.
Really pretty bruises That’s Fat Hand
If you’re interested in this sort of thing, the break is at the bottom of fourth metatarsal. I know, for some of you it’s TMI !!!
After seeing Dr. Allen, I was taken to the cast room. I was given the choice from a rainbow of colors for the cast. My, my, so many choices, do I go with a fashion statement or be practical? My thoughts, pink / pretty, purple / creative , pink shows the dirt, purple, not so much. Now that really is TMI !!!
Finished product, come on over and sign it!
Well there it is, It has taken a while to type this one handed, and it will definitely will be challenge to do dishes (can’t get it wet at all). Taking a shower, that ought to be fun! Any suggestions? Driving, I know that I can actually do it, but I’m not supposed to. The next 6 weeks will certainly be interesting. I’ll keep you up to date on my progress.
Have a great week and thanks for all your comments and concerns.
