broken wrist

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

i'm on the 3rd week with a broken wrist. i finally have a smaller cast that weighs 1/2 of what the original one weighed. i can have use of my elbow which gives me a little more freedom. i'm still not suppose to hold or push anything heavier than a pencil. i'm still flustered with not being able to chop anything. dh is doing his best, but he has never sliced or chopped anything before and i'm scared he will chop his finger off. i try to remember what my yoga teacher says about going into my closet and putting on my cloak of patience. oh well 3 more weeks to go. hopefully i can ride my motorcycle when we go to daytona beach.

    well it sounds like your on the road to recovery.

    Glad your dh is helping you out. They do have veggies already chopped you could get, then you don't have to woory about cut fingers.

    good luck.

    Yeah, 6 weeks seems like forever working one-handed!
    Thinking of you.

    I love that your yoga teacher used the idea of a cloak of patience. I need that today too. Remember this is temporary, imagine if it were permanent.

    I was in a motorcycle accident in Oct 2010 and I know exactly how frustrating it is to be so reliant on everyone else.

    Glad you have the freedom a slightly lighter cast now... hopefully, you'll be free to ride soon! emoticon
