One Armed Bloggette – Part Three

It’s five weeks today since I had my surgery.  Yesterday I was given a shorter cast.  I still have some healing to do.  I saw stars when they removed it.  Yikes!

Now I can learn to use my elbow again. The skin where the rest of the cast was is really gross. I get to keep this one on for a month. It’s shorter on the hand giving me some finger wiggle. 

Folks bringing us our evening meal has been truly helpful

    Yay! Your arm has reappeared! Your fingers wiggle! (Aren’t casts the grossest thing EVER? I broke my wrist in college – when the cast came off my arm was stinky, had a greenish tint from the bruising, and scratches from my futile attempts at itch relief with a wire hanger…PLUS washing one’s hair one-handed is definately a challenge!) So glad you’re on the mend!

    seemingly alline my “arm” has a following on flickr …90 something hits!  I totally agree that casts are gross. My elbow is a purple-esque shade and the skin is just discusting.  I literally dream of washing my hair with both hands!! I know that incremental progress is occurring. Each day.
