Tomorrow I'll be seeing a surgeon - to straighten out a somewhat mangled wrist.
On Jan 26 I succeeded in tripping/slipping on one of the dog bones aand down I went on butt and a wrist. Hubby got home shortly and off we went to UC - both bones broken slightly above joint but fairly well aligned so sent home in a splint and an appt to see orthopedics on Monday. The DRs thought that IF they stayed as they were didn't want to do surgery with dealing with LE unless absolutely necessary. So had to go back on this Monday for new X-rays. Turns out that nothing had come close staying in place. Tomorrow morning they will be putting a plate on one and a screw in the other.
Not the greatest time to have happened though. Tomorrow morning Hubby's boss leaves for week in Mexico and I was supposed to work in the office and as dispatcher. Oh-ha-well. I'll be driving myself up to surgery and Hubby will come up with his rollback wrecker to bring me (and my Bronco II) home. Life is always intersting and different - could be a lot worse.
