So starting with the not so good! my daughter in law Rachael went to hospital yesterday and they can't put a proper plaster cast on yet because of the swelling so still in the temp one, has to go back next Wednesday and have an x ray to see if the bone that was manipulated back into place has stayed put if yes then she'll get the cast which will need to stay on for up to 10 weeks if no then she'll need an op the following day to pin it. Either way poor Rachael will be a bridesmaid in plaster.
So the good news
Well we plucked up the courage to leave Elmo at home, left the dogs with
just the run of the conservatory and kitchen instead of whole bungalow,
sprayed furniture with that stuff that's supposed to stop him chewing, took
everything out I didn't want destroyed and guess
The dark destroyer did not destroy ANYTHING!!!!! and we were gone 1 hour 45 mins.
Hand clinic ......... only small improvement on bend and scar in palm
has gone very stiff and lumpy making the bending of finger much harder
and more painful, so had some ultra sound treatment on it (apparently
this often happens at week 6 and because it's been opened up so many
times she thought it was inevitable) but the good news is she wants me to
take splint off when awake and not doing heavy stuff as this will means
the finger has potentially better range of movement and new exercises
which are so painful to do but must be done 5 times a day to teach the
finger how to bend without me pushing it to bend which I can do, so it's
all there mechanically just need muscles and tendon to figure it out.
So no splint for me at the wedding woohoo, have to be careful that the
dogs don't bash it and also not to push it out straight straight as a small chance it could still snap
but so relieved to get some time out of Larry lamb chops! LOL. So wasn't expecting that result today, happy not even close ecstatic! although it does feel scary not wearing it.
Just soaked my hand in warm water for the first time in almost 6 weeks BLISS!
