After 3 long weeks I was starting to forget what my hand looked like. Yesterday I went back to hospital & had my half cast taken off to have my hand examined. The doctor was happy with results considering the state of the fracture. That was great relief I can tell you. My hand was extremely stiff as it was, so any further scar tissue from surgery I can do without.

My new splintI was led into the physio’s room where Lesley make me this plastic splint within minutes. That was very impressive. I have to wear this in bed & for protection. It’s very easy to take off to wash & I can scratch hand when ever I like. I can even tie my shoe laces!

Now I’m on a course of exercises to get my hand back to normal & if all goes well, it should be heeled enough to play Grand Theft Auto in 2 weeks, hurrah!
