And The Date Is....

After going to the Doctor on Monday for the checkup on my wrist/hand I will be getting the cast off on Friday July 13th. This means I have almost 3 more weeks in this crazy thing.

I originally was scheduled to get it off on the 10th but I have a meeting at work with the consulting group that is doing a project for our division so I had to reschedule. After I get this off the doctor is going to put me in a aircast which is removable and have me do some rehab. If I am lucky I might be able to make the softball playoffs...if I decide to press my luck that is. I might just move on to street hockey.

My fingers are still bruised but not as puffy and have begun to flake off dead skin.
I am so ready to be able to get back to a normal workout routine. Been sleeping too much due to painkillers...mmm...painkillers (still have a lot of sweling and sometimes at night feels like razors being stabbed in my wrist). Was at the gym recently and the Tuesday morning Spinning instructor saw me and said she noticed I had not been in class lately and said that my wrist being in a cast had better be my excuse. Haven't done the evening classes a lot lately since sitting on the bike is boring and the sling puts strain on my back and my schedule has been hectic as of late.

Found out yesterday my AC in the car is all but shot and not worth repairing. I hope to get my car title and license changed obver to NY this week ince I have been here almost a year.

I Miss My Thumb

So its been about 2 weeks since my last post for a few reasons:

1) It takes me forever to type with one hand (my left) and the last thing I want to do at the end of the day is lug the laptop in the house then lug it back out to the car.
2) My landlord got a new wireless router and having trouble getting the computer to connect.
3)Been away the past 2 weekends ..Pittsburgh, Pa with friends last weekend and visiting my brother in Conn. the weekend before that.

It is hard to believe only 3 1/2 weeks have gone by since I broke my wrist and hand, I think I have 3-4 more weeks in the cast. Hopefully I will get a better idea tomorrow after I go see the dr when he checks the swelling/bruising of my fingers
That is what they looked like 2 weeks ago and they look a bit better but still bruised and some what puffy.

Since my last post I:
1) Got a new cast

yeah I took my camera to the drs appt. I have pictures of my wrist/hand but it just bruising. Still can't use my thumb and even today I really can't put any weight on it...but I am still doing the evening spinning classes with my arm in the sling.

2) Turned 29...I am old. What time does Matlock come on tv?

3) Went to Pittsburgh and saw my friends ...

What happens in Pittsburgh...stays in Pittsburgh

4) Continue to figure out new and exciting (ha ha) was to do stuff with only one hand
It took me 30 minutes to hang my white clothes to dry the other night...haven't even thought about my shirts and pants yet. If you saw my house you could tell that usually I just look at something and go "Nope not going to even try"

Well lefty is getting tired so I may post an update after my dr appt. tomorrow
