"Breaking" News

This is just the bruising. 

Pretty impressive huh! 

(The rest of my arm is just a dull yellow, like I've rolled my arm in nicotine.) Pain is usually manageable with Ibuprofen (and over-the-counter rantidine for the stomach pain caused by the ibuprofen). 

I'm scheduled for surgery on my wrist next Wednesday. If all goes well, I'll get a cast a week later; and 5 weeks after that, the cast will come off and I'll be able to begin converting what will be a flipper back into an arm. 

I'll be back to wave at you all then.

Damn, girl! Mud wrestling? Header off the pole? Rescuing the castaways? Or just not ready to slow down yet? That looks painful. Fingers crossed, hoping your surgery goes well, as well as the rest of your recovery. Take care of yourself!

That looks grim and painful. I hope the surgery goes well and your recovery isn't too dreadful. Your writing/dominant arm? Hope not!

Oh, Sandy, that looks bad. I hope the pain will stop and a lot of paitience during recovery.

Sandi said...

I am going to assume you got this fighting a bear. I know, I know, in your last post you mentioned ice, but I don't believe you for a minute!



Get well. Soon.
