lost my balance and broke a bone in my wrist....casted. Of course it is my right hand and I am right handed ,,, I also sprained my right ankle (but that is getting better already after only 4 days.
I returned to work on Friday so only missed 11.5 hours of work.
I have my thumb immobilized so am having a bit of a problem typing but can do it though slow. An hour after returning to work I figured out how to write quite well with a pen so my supervisor was surprised I was doing quite well even though I have work restrictions due to cast on hand. So I am hopeful I will not be sent home on medical leave as the disability leave benefits are extremely low.....as this was injury on Wednesday morning before going to work and not work comp. I unfortunately was told a scaphoid fracture can be slow to heal and might require surgery, I am hoping for speedy recovery.
