The cast came off yesterday and I (again) wondered where my forearm went. Although I have a new "appliance" to wear, my hand works so good that I could get myself in trouble. Move the fingers too much and I could mess up the thumb. So I have to pay close attention to keep myself from doing stupid. That is a never ending task. Now that I can get out better it's so damned cold I'm not going out. I might have to force my son and his girlfriend to be models for some weird stuff I have in mind to experiment with.
A hint for cast wearers. If you get itching, take a hair drier on medium heat and blow it up under the cast. The surgeon told me a little late....which he apologized for.
