MD Update

Just a quick update.  Went to see my Doctor yesterday and he had my arm re-xrayed.  He says that with fine line breaks it can take up to 2 weeks for it to show up on an X-ray.  Well show up it did. I broke my left wrist.  I'm not in a cast, but rather a splint designed for carpel tunnel syndrome, it's so comfortable, best my arm has felt since I hurt it.  My left hand is now quite immobile so I have to do everything with my right hand.  So Blogging is going to become rather hit or miss.  I'll keep reading, but not much writing.
I'm off to stick gifts into bags and boxes, think paper may be beyond me.

  1. Oh no! I do hope it mends quickly but I'm glad to hear that it's feeling a little better now that you've got it in a splint.

  2. How nice to have it immobilized. I did a lot of one finger typing when I broke my arm a year ago. It will be nice to hear a "Hi" from you while it mends.

  10. It's good that the splint helps with the pain and that it's not a clumsy cast. I hope now that it is immobilized it will heal quickly. Bags and boxes sound like a very good idea.

  12. Sorry about the wrist as I can't imagine that it must be hard not to move it and make it hurt. I never heard if the breaks showing up later. Hope it heels quickly.

  13. I feel your pain...I broke my left wrist 2 years ago. There was no crocheting, knitting, quilting for a while. Fortunately I began coloring, something I had loved as a child. Little did I know that was at the very start of the adult coloring craze.

  16. Oh My Goodness, sorry to hear this. But like I said before for this year take it easy, don't go all out and rest that hand.
    Boxes or bags sound just fine.

    Cheers, parsnip

  17. I am glad you have found some comfort with the splint. It is lucky you don't have to put up with a stookie (which is how we call a plaster cast in Scotland), with the splint you can open it up and scratch when you feel an itch. I remember my daughter was always itchy under her splint when she broke her wrist. x

  18. I am so glad they found the fracture, to bad they did not tell you to have that splint on just in case. Take your time and heal.
