OK, I'm right-handed, usually - unless I've done something dumb and the left hand has to work! I am typing this two handed- but only for short periods of time. 10 days post-surgery; docs really surprised at how fast I am healing; stitches gone, arm sort of back to normal size. For anyone not too squeemish, GD will probably post X-rays soon. To my dismay, I will probably not ride for 2-3 more weeks. THIS time I will take the doc seriously. You see, he could only place a few of the pieces back and then hold them in place by screwing in a few more - for a total of 7; said he couldn't get the last two to fit anywhere. The round part that actually makes the elbow socket is what took the hit of a fully extended kick-and got smashed. Only 4 are actually being held in place with the plate and screws, so I have to give the bone time to mend to itself. I have a weight limit on my right arm of one paper only; not even my tea cup! Ouch! If I bumped a tree limb or grabbed a rein while riding, it could mean major problems....so, I am really, really, r e a l l y trying to be good. Beel and kids have been life savers. Thanks to everyone who has so graciously commented with well wishes. My elbow says its tired.
