Arm Update

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I had a doctor's appt today for my wrist. They took 3 x-rays and the bones are mending good, better than any of us expected without surgery. I have a follow-up on Dec 20th.

I'm still on pain meds but the dr said that will lessen as the swelling decreases. The pain, he explained is from his molding the cast to force the tendons to remain taut while the bones mend so the tiny bones in the top of the hand don't shift toward the wrist.

I can deal with the pain, it is the inactivity that drives me batty. emoticon I am used to being more active!

My thanks for all the prayers.
