arm coffins suck

Took page from favourite blog “Bigfoot child have diabetes” to write this post. Forgive me… typing=hard.

May or may not know I broke wrist. Snowboarding. Out of bounds New York.

Sorta think “stupid Scully”. Good at boarding, lack technical forest skills. Follow crazy talented husband and brother. Learn fate lack of skills. Fall. Smash wrist. Knew right away. Crawled out trying to breath. Pain incredible.
 
Get down hill pull off glove what is weird bump? Why can't move hand? Shit. Get fuck back to safety (Canada). Longest drive ever. Seriously. Happy to have ice in backseat to keep arm fucking frozen feel less pain. Have final shower before go urgent care. In, xray, splint (half cast), home under 30mins. Brilliant. 3 days later fall down stairs. Major internal bruise on hip. Also, slipped on ice New Year’s Eve while running behind house to pee (no don’t drink alcohol). Bump other hip and head. 

5 days after break - full cast (coffin) on. Chose black so brother can't draw penis. Fucking friends remind white sharpie invention.

Coffin worst shit ever. Want rip off so bad. Fingers ALWAYS frozen lack of circulation.

 
Driving manual transmission car stop & go traffic hours a day. Knee valuable stand-in.
 
 
Work use mitten for slide & pivot. One finger type. Cast pressure cause all fingers ache ALL day so try not use.

Bathing ingenuity. Put soap on leg, use leg clean normal arm. Shave pits? Not a chance. Dirty hippy chick 6 weeks. No picture. This strict no nudity blog eh?

Learn elbow is awesome wedge snow brush scrape ice windshield.
 
 
Every day toque day can't do hair.
 
 
Teeth also great many things!

 
Wash dishes one hand master but noisy drag on sink bottom. Yes latex glove bum hand but hand not good for much.
 
 
Bike WAS doable with little cast. No bike train now, very VERY pissed off.

  3. So, so sorry about your broken wrist. Good move getting back across the border to get treated. If you didn't do that, you might still be in the E.R. here in the States. Besides, how do you declare a cast at customs?

    Hope the next 5-6 weeks go really fast.

    1. can't lean on cast, too much pain. old cast was short so could lean on aero bars without pushing on cast.

  5. dominant or non-dominant arm? regardless, that sucks. sorry.

    healing thoughts. (fastclix lancing device was a lifesaver for having to do one handed finger pokes during my stint with a cast)

  9. Similar looking arm coffin at our house :-( Monkey broke her wrist tobogganing New Years Eve. Only difference-it's her dominant hand & her coffin is white. Have you noticed an effect on your BG with the break? Not sure if that's the culprit here or not. Here's hoping it will be quick healing for you & her both!

    1. I'd be fucked if it was my dominant hand. I wouldn't be able to work! sorry to hear.
      My BG's went up and so major adjustments of insulin was required but I figured that's from the lack of exercise more than the injury.
