Yesterday was the big unveiling of my new, mending left arm!!
|Sawing off the purple cast.|
|Free at last......|
|Although feeling pretty stiff and sore, the hand gives the 'thumbs up'.|
Of course! How could I so cruelly discard my beloved purple exoskeleton?
Showed the purple cast to Roxy Doxy.
|Doxy: 'It's a shame to throw away something so useful and delightfully smelly. Can't we find a use for it?'|
|'We could repurpose the cast as a delightful candle holder? Or, a dog biscuit dispenser?'|
|'A festive Christmas ornament?'|
|'A useful head cover for your 5 iron?'|
|'A toothpaste/toothbrush caddie?'|
While Doxy took meticulous notes on possible ideas to reuse the purple cast, I was glorying in washing my face....with BOTH hands. I indulged in a one arm spa treatment with warm water, soap and a washcloth. Followed it up with a liberal dose of lotion. Heavenly.
Here's my new chic arm covering for the next 3 weeks.
|Say 'hello' to the lovely black splint!|
My patience could be wearing thin, however. Caught a glimpse of THIS last evening.
A certain, stubby-legged pooch seems to be preparing costumes for Halloween. It's not EVEN October!
Oh, lawzee. This makes the toothpaste caddie look mighty appealing. help
Celebrating a wristapalooza today!!
Healing love to all.
