Every time I go in for x-ray, I learn something else about the extent of my injury. Evidently the doctor had to "fill in" holes in the radius that had been punched by other bones in the wrist. And the filler has been well assimilated, the break is fusing, and I have graduated from cast to splint which I am allowed to remove five times a day for stretching exercise, and (drum roll please) for bathing! I scrubbed my left arm from fingertips to elbow for the first time in 2 months. Oh god it was glorious!! Oh, yes! ahhhh, oooo, just like that! Mmmm, harder, Yeeeeesssss!
The stretching hurts like a sumbich but I gotta do it if I'm gonna get my hand back. Amazing how weak and stiff you can get in a brief two months. And pale! I didn't think I COULD get paler, but there is a definite like of demarcation just below the fingers.
Oh, and I have a new story - I was at Nordstrom's half-yearly sale and this supermodel type shoved me away from a rack of Balenciaga dresses at 75% off. So I shoved her back and it must have been when I punched her in the head that I broke my wrist. . .
