A few posts back, I mentioned how I banged my hand up pretty bad. Being stubborn and very shy of doctors, I paid it little attention. I took some Motrin for the pain and swelling but that was it. When I finally went to to doctor to get it checked out (after realizing that sensation and movement in my pinky and lower palm was not right), I discovered that my hand is actually fractured. The fracture runs along the top portion of my hand and into the joint/knuckle of the pinky.
So they sent me to orthopedics to get it a cast put on. The good news is that I only have to wear the cast for 2 weeks. As you could guess, there is a great deal of bad news as well.
First, typing like this sucks. I am only able to use one finger on my right hand due to the structure of the cast. I am also having to learn how to use a mouse with my left hand. (No fun.) So basically, my writing will be very minimal in the next two weeks. Add to that the fact that I am the best man in my brother’s wedding next weekend and this cast is really pissing me off. I did manage to get a black cast to match the tux, though.
(Closing note….a little less pissed now. Received an e-mail in the ridiculous amount of time it took me to write this that, if I am reading it correctly, is potentially GREAT news. More info as it comes).
