Went for the results of my MRI scan yesterday to find out the state of play with my right wrist.
The scan confirmed that I have a hairline fracture across the middle bones in my wrist. Too small a crack to be put in plaster so to keep the splint on for another 3 weeks. Meanwhile I need to have
physiotherapy sessions arranged in order to get my wrist moving again.
After the hospital trip we decided to go on into town and have a little retail therapy (no not stash I promise, just needed a new dressing gown). Went round several shops and saw a couple I liked (sale prices even better) and 'The Doc' suggested going to one last shop before buying. They had several different ones but not hanging on rails to make it easy to choose oh no they were alll folded up in assorted piles. Having found one in the right size the doc helped me on with it only to find himslef getting electric static sparks from the fabric so making him step back. His next suggestion (do not try this one at home) was for me to let the dressing gown drop to the floor (its okay I was fully clothed) so that he didn't have to help me out of it. So far so good but don't be wearing a Steel Splint on your right wrist and try grabbing a metal edged table for support with your good left hand as you do it!!!!!!! To add insult to injury the doc told me I would have to pay good money to get elctric shock treatment like that done privately!!!! I do also have naturally wavy hair just not normally this curly.
Needless to say I did not buy from that shop and went back and bought the nice pale blue one I had wanted all along.
Feeling has now returned to right arm and hair is nice and straight again after a visit to the hairdressers.
The Doc has snaffled his discarded bottle back!! Sergent Jones is now on guard duty in the Lounge!!!
