Got my cast off today .. only to learn I need two more weeks. So new cast it is, I picked blue this time. In the scope of the world it’s such a minor injury and i got off really lucky from my accident. But it’s been quite the lesson in stillness, patience, receiving help, and learning to be right handed where I can. I’ve had such wonderful and kind support from everyone I’ve met – friends and family from afar; an exceptionally helpful boyfriend who dropped all the things at the last minute to support me; light hearted doctors, nurses and other medical professionals; and i’m lucky enough to work for such a kind, accommodating and supportive company who’ve taken my complete inability to do my job so well. But, here I am. I’ve had some tantrums and meltdowns over stupid things, but ultimately I’m super grateful for both my hands, and looking forward to getting my left one back in working order in a couple more weeks!
