Maybe Surgery Saturday

My Left Hand

Angel makes an inspection

Manny making sure that I'm relaxing


The first doctor said I had a fracture.  He sent me to an orthopedic specialist, who is pretty sure I have three breaks.  My CT scan is scheduled for early Tuesday, then I talk to the specialist again once he's looked over those results.

Odds are that surgery is in my future, if doc doesn't think a reset and cast will do the trick.  Meanwhile, I'm in a soft cast, with instructions to keep my hand elevated, iced, and rested. 

Therefore, I may be absent from blogging a bit.  I can type one-handed, though, and will miss you all too much to completely disappear!  The Hubby says I've got street cred, having gone days with broken bones like a real toughie, but I only hope that they have Hello Kitty bandages!

And I have a terrific furry nursing staff...The Hubby included (hardyharhar!)  Take care all; I'll do the same.

Oh no! I hope you won't need surgery, and that the pain isn't bad right now!

Hello Kitty bandages are the best, they make every problem better. :)
