Well, it's official, my radius is broken in a textbook compression fracture. (The radius is the one on the thumb side of the wrist) I don't know how to add an arrow to the picture or I would point to the line of the break but trust me, it is a thorough job! lol
The doctor has allowed me to stay in the velcro/metal brace as long as I absolutely DO NOT use my right hand.
I have the okay to hunt and peck
with my thumb and forefinger only, allowing no rotation.
He's sneaky because I have an appointment next week to check how it is healing and to be sure of no displacement!
Any variation and it is a hard cast for me!
I can follow the rules explicitly when the stakes are this high!
I did confess to using my adjusted style of knitting
but it is off the table now, too, because it is repetitive
and has a rotating rhythm. Sigh.
I now have a choice-sit and stew
or see this as a new creative opportunity.
So my daughter, Marsel, had a genius and very encouraging idea for me; "Take up abstract art with your left hand!
Paint backgrounds for cards....
try something you wouldn't have done without this happening!" Just what I needed to hear!
This is a 5 x 7" card that I painted with said left hand...I
am going to run it through the printer and add words--
my handwriting is not legible yet
but I have a lot of time to practice!!!
