Drum roll please...

After four months, today the cast came OFF! Woohoo! Woohoo!! WOOHOO!!! It was replaced with a splint that I wear till I go back in six weeks, but the splint can be removed several times a day for light exercise, like TYPING! (Indeed, doctor's orders!) And no more plastic bags taped to arm while showering! Oh Happy Day!

It's not done healing, but it's 'much improved.' It's very weak, so lots of progress to make. Still must use the bone stimulator daily, and not over tax it or strain it, and must massage the scar tissue (ouch), but very happy and thankful am I.

  1. Wow....you have been so patient. I would have been considering amputation by now. Congratulations, you made it. Now you can feel air, water and human touch on that arm.
    I understand the instinct to "baby" it, but keep up with those excersises...they really do make a huge difference.
    I am glad to hear you are in the other side of the healing process.
    Love you lots,
