Fooling around




How do you all like my fashionable cast? I picked blue, but when I went out in the waiting room there was lady with a light pink cast that was even nicer. My friend says I should "accidentally" get this one wet and then choose pink when they have to redo it. Nice idea, but I'd feel guilty for lying and wouldn't be able to enjoy the pink one anyway. I'm a crappy liar so being on a reality tv show probably isn't an option for me. The kids had me take these pictures, they thought it might be funny to mess around with mom's cast.

Things are going OK except my doc would like me to elevate my arm more hours in the day. Whom should I get to watch my kid's, the magic man? Or perhaps he would like to hire me a nanny. Now that sounds like an option. I will keep you all posted on Friday when they evaluate me for surgery once again. Until then I guess I won't be playing tennis anytime soon.

By the way I hope none of you ever break your wrist, the cast weighs about 50,000. lbs. Well maybe not 50,000., but close enough. I feel like I'm dragging around a bowling ball all day. I also have a much higher respect for people who lose an arm. One handed living is not that simple. I can't even open a box top. Cooking hamburger helper made me seem lik a contortionist the way I was holding stuff with my teeth, leaning against the counter, and twisting myself around to rip the packages open. I can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store for me. I'll let you know.

I dislocated my elbow a few years back (falling off a step ladder). I remember well trying to do things with one arm. I feel for you. I hope all goes well and your wrist heals quickly!! After 2 surgeries on my elbow I still have limited movement and nerve damage. What a pain literally, I can only wear bras that hook in the front because my right arm can't reach to my back. How dumb is that!

I can just imagine how hard it is to do the simplest things. You're handling the frustration a lot better than I would. And I sure hope you don't have to have surgery. That cast does look heavy.
