I think she caught him peeking in one of those boxes before Christmas is what happened to the arm.

Bill..you're right. It was a good fair fight though. She was just lucky breaking my arm. After a few hours I got her under control without any serious injuries.

Actually there are almost as many things you can do with one arm..its a little slower, but for me thats probably a good thing :)

My orthopedic surgeon put my left arm in a cast today... 6 WEEKS :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: ...Then 6 more weeks of therapy...what a mess :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: .

I had rotator cuff surgery on both shoulders a couple of years ago..not with the scope but open shoulder repair. That took forever to heal too :)): :)): :)): :)):

Too bad your so far from most of us. We can't sign your cast.
Look at the bright side it gives you something to look forward to.

Hope you heal fast and the PT is a breeze. For what it's worth, here are 5 nuggets of knowledge concerning broken bones:

1. A robust aroma starts brewing inside the cast after a few weeks. It's worse during hot weather, so try not to sweat.

2. Your skin gets really funky looking after being sealed in a cast for 6 weeks. You'll better understand why snakes are usually portrayed as evil.

3. When the itching starts, use thin artist brushes with long wooden handles to scratch under the cast. Wire coat hangers will claw you up and draw blood. Bloody scabs makes 1 and 2 worse and makes the itching more intense.

4. Rebreaking bones as they are healing hurts like heck. And you don't whistle a happy tune as the orthopedic surgeon re-sets it. If you did something stupid or reckless to cause the rebreak, chances are he'll be kinda POed and won't clean up your arm while it's out of the cast. As a result 1, 2 and 3 will continue unabated for 6 more weeks. Guard that arm!

5. Appreciate having a good wife. A loving woman makes 1, 2 and 3 bearable and she'll try like the dickens to keep you from experiencing 4.

Hey Lurker..Just a :twisted: SPECIAL :twisted: thank you. It has just now started itching :twisted:

I have a good old letter opener here that I hope will work :lol:

I have reviewed Illust. 56 in my Operator's Manual, Adjusting and checking valve clearance, no way I could balance wrenches on my fingertips like that guy :cry: no way :roll:

Use Super Glue to keep the wrenches on your fingertips. They'll drop off after about 3 days.

Lurker, if i used Super Glue... couldn't tie my shoes. I can just barely get that done now. With those wrenches hanging on my fingers it would be much more difficult :cry: :cry:

Letter opener works fairly well 8)

I think he rebroke my arm yesterday.#4. It hurts like hell again, and my fingers look like they have about 60 psi in each one. :roll: :roll:

The swelling will subside over the next few weeks as the bones knit back together and the soft tissue damage heals. The cast will become looser and you'll be able to scratch in there a lot easier. Try to keep the arm elevated above your heart to help ease swelling and pain a bit. The first couple weeks are the worst, same with PT. And don't roll over on it when you sleep!

You shouldn't be tying shoes anyway, at least not yet. Get loafers or shoes with Velcro straps or refer to #5 for shoe tying duties.
