This could be the day

Well, this could be it!

Today just might be the day I get my cast off of my arm! It’s been 5 weeks since that fateful day. The day I fell off my bike and my arm collided with the sidewalk, resulting in a scaphoid fracture in my left arm.

My husband has been so patient and awesome through it all. You’ve heard of someone being your “right-hand man”? Well, I have an amazing “left-hand man” and I am so very thankful for him and his love and care for me. He’s simply the best!

I’ve tried to carry on life as “normal”, but it seems to have caused a bit of a slow down. Showers take a little bit longer, typing is a little painful at times, and cooking seems to have taken the biggest brunt of it all. I still haven’t figured out how to open a packet of sugar for my coffee with just one hand yet!

These are just a few of the little inconveniences that will hopefully be a thing of the past soon.

Just think, this could be the day that I’ll be back to “normal” like everyone else!

However, I’m a little leery about the prospects of a cast free arm. After all the reading I have done about this type of injury, it’s quite possible I’m in for another few weeks of this.

I know…I’m not suppose to believe everything I read on the Internet, but apparently this type of fracture can be a little quirky, and can be quite difficult to heal.

Hmmmm……

So, I’m holding out hope,because well, right now, that’s about all I have! I’m hoping this has healed quite nicely, and that there won’t be any residual pain/effect of this injury.

And now I’m off to the Doctor…and hoping for the best!!!
