look ma, no cast!

(only, not look - i don't have photos yet).

got the cast off today. doc looked at it, did a bunch of tests......and walked me into his therapy dept and had me do a session. i have very very limited range of motion, the novocaine-feeling numbness is worse, and he is concerned. (i can't flip my hand over, i can't rotate it at all, and i can't flap it back and forth at all - which is bad. i also have a distinct lack of feeling on the top of my hand - which isn't as bad, since we don't do a lot of sensitive stuff with the back of the hand. still....)

i have a nerve test set up for the 17th, with an appt with him directly after, and a therapy session directly after *that*. i have 6 exercises i have to do 3x/day, 10 reps each, plus i have to massage my wrist 2x/day. fun stuff! (only, not really). i also have to wear a brace all the time, except in the shower and when doing the exercises/massage.

in other news, i knit 2 rounds of my sock! in about 30 minutes.....:sigh:

i also sewed up a shirt for me on sunday - it only took 5 hours. :big sigh: i cut another one out yesterday - 2 hours to cut 7 pieces out. (some of the doubled, but most single-layer to try to do pattern matching. i failed but the shirt should be wearable anyway.)

gotta say, i've done a lot of reading recently. since the accident, i've plowed thru......14 books. so far. at least i can read 1-handed.
