Miracles of Modern Medicine

This is a warning: Photos that follow are graphic.

It’s 15 days after the injury (seems like forever) and 5 days after surgery. The splint came off to reveal what was underneath. Now I have a cast. It’s below the elbow!. After only 2 weeks its sure hard to straighten my arm.  And I need to work to get some life back into my curled up fingers. (I’m sorry for those of you who have suffered much more debilitating or serious injuries than this–I must seem like a real whiner–and I’m so thankful that this wasn’t any worse.) So here are the photos. I go back next week to have the stitches removed.

This is what it looks like under the cast.

Here's what it looks like under the skin!

I think I counted 6 screws at the top.

For a change of pace, look at what is blooming. I have a friend who says she doesn’t like daffodils because they are too perky” I think they’re great!

  1. Wow, your daffodils are beautiful! They are very cheerful flowers 🙂

    Your hand is not so cheery though. A cast below the elbow is great! You should be good to go as soon as lambing gets here!

  2. GAK! That’s a wicked looking break.

    By the way, your friend is nuts, I adore daffodils.

    By the way, happy lambing! Hopefully I’ll make it out your way for a visit this time. : D
