Three More Weeks of Not Knitting!
I saw the doctor today. After having my family do pretty much everything but wipe my behind for a week, I was so sure I'd be back to business as usual. But they took x-rays and found that a small piece of the ulna had chipped off when I dislocated my elbow and they want it immobilized for three more weeks. So they took off the half-cast I had and replaced it with a full cast from shoulder to knuckles. I did convince them to leave me about a half-inch more open near the hand to at least make it possible to fully extend my fingers.
No showers for three more weeks. Finally, this morning I was able to figure out how to clean my right armpit while bathing, LOL. Soap on the cloth, swing it under my arm, clamp my right arm down, then pull the rag through with my left hand. I guess I will have to figure out some other creative ways to carry on as close to usual as possible. I'm waiting to hear from my employer if he's open to having a one-handed typist, or if I'll have to stay home.
I am not a happy camper. Just thought I'd share my boo hoo with you.
Still happy it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I know I'm blessed.
Happy Holidays to everyone.
