The latest in fracture fashion! The break is on the fifth metatarsal (the bone in your hand that connects to your pinky), and my doctor recommended this splint. Four weeks! I may keep it on for the rehearsal dinner but I don't plan to wear it at the wedding! You have no idea how hard it was to take this picture using my left hand--I've got a digital slr (think "old clunky model") and the shutter is on the top right. All in all this didn't turn out too badly. There are definitely things that are difficult to do while wearing this--like taking photographs with the left hand--but generally I've got a fair amount of mobility.
Just wanted to do a quick reporting in. I wish after the absence of writing for a few days that I had all sorts of fun or profound things to say but alas, the well is dry. Maybe tomorrow.
In the meantime good wishes to you all. Thanks for stopping by!
