Big Blue

Yeah, my hand is still pretty gross looking - but now instead of sticking out of a beige ace bandage it is sticking out of dark blue fiberglass.

I asked Nathan (our family expert on broken bones) if he thought I ought to take some painkiller BEFORE the appointment. He said," yes - they won't give you anything there."

I'm quite happy that I did - even with one percocet on board having the splint removed and the cast applied was moderately painful.

The guy that put on the cast was very impressed with my "designer" sling.

Next appointment - March 5th - God willing, I will get a shorter cast then.

That's a nice looking cast. Hopefully, you'll be done with it soonish. :)

It'll come in handy when you're feelin' blue now won't it...

I love the band around your ring finger--you couldn't pass as single if you tried...

Which sling did you wear into the office?

the houndstooth check...I wanted to be taken seriously. Next time I'll maybe try the cowboys and Indians.
