Thank You!!

Sorry this won't be very's really hard to type with one hand!!

I thought breaking my right wrist would be about the same as breaking my left wrist. I was wrong. I'm right handed. It takes me longer to do everything and I just plain can't do other things.

For instance, I cannot open a water bottle :(
The funniest thing is watching people figure out how to shake my hand. I put my left hand out and people grab it like they are going to hold my hand and then they kinda shake it. It's really funny!

Thankfully I have the most wonderful husband(sorry, but it's true), and he helps me do everything. Wednesday morning Dallas got called into work and I had to get ready on my own.
I ended up having to go to my rotation late, without breakfast or lunch, my favorite glasses broke, and my hair was awful. It was not a good morning:(
Every other morning I've been clean, dressed, hair done, make-up on, well fed with lunch, and with sunglasses:)

He's so wonderful, I couldn't do it without him!

I get my new (removable) splint next tuesday!! I cannot wait, I'm so tempted to take this one off so I can clean my arm! Maybe I'll "accidentally" get it wet....jk

This is what it looked like on Wednesday (2 days after the break and before the surgery).

Dallas, what a trooper. Thanks for being so wonderful. I'm sorry it is such a pain.

So how did first week back at work go? I'm sure a right hand/arm would come in handy. We've been praying for you.

So I haven't been blog stalking in ages and just came across your little story. That's awful. I'm glad everything went well with the surgery though. Hopefully by now you are doing much better and that arm will be ready for more homework anytime!
