Sorry it has taken so long to get back with everyone. It's been a bit of a stressful week what with the horrible weather and temperatures we've been having. So, I went to the doctor on Friday of last week and had new x-rays taken. Turns out that my wrist is actually in fantastic position and that I do not need surgery!
The doctor told me that he couldn't better position my bones even with surgery, so hooray! There's some positive news there. I go back this coming Monday and I get my full, plaster cast on. It will be sometime in early-mid February when I have it removed according to my Orthopedic doctor.
Afterward, I will need to go through a few weeks of physical therapy to regain full use of my wrist again. So, I still have a bit of a road ahead of me. However, when I get my cast on, I will be able to do some light, gentle riding! Yay! I still can't hold a pencil properly to draw or move my thumb without pain to play a video game yet, but I can ride one handed or with no hands at all.
I'm getting better about using my left hand for things and I can use my right hand a little more that what I was able to, but not by much. I can type with my right hand on my laptop, albiet very slowly. My arm gets tired fast when I do. I can hold my phone with my right hand and use one finger on it.
My hubby has been an amazing, fantastic help to me during this time because there are various things I still cannot do with just one hand. It's proved to be a difficult journey. I just can't wait til I get my cast on so I can ride. I'm going stir-crazy not being able to do any of the things I love. I've been watching a lot of Netflix and anime. Rewatching Inuyasha, catching up on Supernatural, and rewatching Heartland amongst various movies and stuff on Netflix lol. It sucks and I get bored fast, but yeah. I'm managing. I just hope I can still draw like I used to once I have full use of my wrist again. *sighs* That scares me so much.
