This Wasn’t In the Plan

How is everyone holding up while sheltering in place or self quarantining or social distancing or whatever it’s being called where you are? Casa Coleman was doing pretty well up until midnight Thursday. That’s when I fell down on my way to the bathroom and broke my right arm. In doctor speak that would be a fracture of the distal radius with some telescoping into the joint. We went to the ER around 5 a.m. where they x-rayed my arm and casted it.  Yesterday I saw an orthopedic surgeon and got set up for surgery to repair the break with a plate and screws this coming Tuesday.  😑 The worst thing, though, is that I’m right handed and can’t knit, can’t throw pots, can’t do anything myself except sleep.

Monday Night

Tomorrow’s the big day, the day I actually can start healing.  I miss being busy and today has been especially long and hard.  On top of being bored, this cast is starting to be less than fresh. Yuck.

Tuesday Afternoon

It’s over and done with and I’m told it all went very well – The last thing I remember is the big lights in the OR and being moved from the gurney to the OR table. Nine hours post op fracture and no pain (so far) thanks to the nerve block. 😁😁😁 Nothing lasts forever though so there are pain meds at the ready. 💊

If this is a rerun, I’m sorry. I think I actually neglected to hit Publish when this post was done. Musta been the pain meds!
