PatD got what we consider a "good report" at her follow-up surgical visit today.  The X-Ray clearly shows the Ulna now being shorter than the Radius and not in direct contact with the Lunate as it previously was.

I understand.  She knows that she has an extended recovery time ahead.

I am trying to finish the sawing job that I am on so we can take a bit of a trip, but the logs are multiplying plus it is too HOT to make much productivity..

A friend should be rolling in right about now. I built 3 sets of stairs up into that cabin, she stepped off the smallest, a 2 step , Friday evening. She had stepped into Bill's oversize slippers to grab the laundry, slipped on a step and badly broke her ankle in 2 places. They should be up in Maine with 2 other couples right now but she is down hard for at least 6 weeks. Its usually the little dumb stuff that gets us. More and more I have to remind myself to slow down and stay focused on the moment.

Thank You Pete, and all.  I am trying to finish the sawing job that I am on but it keeps growing.  Two more jobs came in today.  We need to be traveling and enjoying, and now I am dealing with a health issue.  :-X

PatD had a followup visit with the surgeon today and he said that her arm is healing nicely.  She is to exercise her wrist and fingers and she still needs to wear the arm splint.  She is scheduled to return in one month.

Lynn.

   Maybe you need to buy her a milk cow or a herd of milk goats. She can get her therapy and you can get fresh milk. ;)

    Do you think she would appreciate all our attempts to help with her therapy?

    I hope she continues to recover quickly and completely.

She'll come through, it's just not as easy as it is at 30. I remember my grandmother, she'd jokingly raise that right hand in a fist, bring it close to your nose and say, 'smell your master'. That was her way in telling you that you better behave. :D

PatD had a followup visit today with the Surgeon.  He was pleased with her progress and will now allow her to do whatever she wants to do as long as it does not hurt.  She does not need to wear the splint except at her discretion. 

He did explain that an accidental break would heal faster than a sawed off and rejoined bone.  The brain knows what to do with a broken bone, but it is not prepared to deal with a sawed and rejoined bone.  It just takes more time.

She does not go back for two months.
