Madre says I need to think of the positives of having a broken wrist and since it’s been 1-1/2 weeks to this point of cussing and bemoaning my circumstances, allow me to humor her said Negative Nora by Nature! That sentence only took me 5 minutes to type one-handed!
I am now coughcoughTHENOTSOPROUDcoughcough new owner of a gigantic YES tattoo on my pointer finger… and by tattoo I really mean despite scrubbing daily with an antibacterial cloth it is still there! That’s the mark the doctor made, so he’d make sure to do the surgery on the correct wrist… as if this glaring clue wasn’t enough!
Stupid invisible arm splints anyway!
– Positive numero dos… I no longer need to worry about ever using my elbow… pesky thing that it was anyway! Who really needs to itch their nose or reach the marijuana pipe… KIDDING… CHILL! And before you ask… yes I broke the distal radius in my wrist area, but apparently elbow here didn’t want to be left out of the arm wrap. They gave me a bionic metal splint elbow for ez access to conk people in the face if needed!
This is my claw… I’m part Wolverine. This was days in after the swelling had gone down dramastically… totes normal now!
– In all seriousness my positive for today is the fact that eating with my left hand slows down the shoveling movement by half if I use silverware and even though I have been eating like a cow with emotional eating that could be a bonus for me going forward.
So there it is Madre! My positive outlook on my wrist injury. If you don’t like it I have this bionic elbow and wolverine claw that I can clonk you with.
P.S. The winner of the FatMas challenge by default because she is the only one who finished is Jolecia! GO JOLECIA for perservering through all the holiday kerfuffle. Jolecia, would you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preference of whether you want the prize money in the form of Walmart or Amazon gift card and what email address you want me to send it to. That would be great.
Posting will still be scarce because I have to make an appointment with my mom to help with the typing so make the best of your January.
QUESTION OF THE DAY: For those who have experienced one handedness or one footedness, any advice?
