I broke my hand!

Post by Karyn_Sue »

My story and I’m sticking to it!

Was walking down a sidewalk, wearing good walking shoes, and tripped over an uneven block. Landed on my right hand. Skinned my knee, had road rash on my face, but the real damage was a broken bone near the wrist. Luckily it was a stable, not displaced hairline fracture and they didn’t cast it! But I’ve been in a splint since then that’s really hampered my ability to craft and even type. I’m SO right handed!!!!! Here’s my displeasure with the huge splint:


I’m now in a softer splint with buddy taped fingers and doing physical therapy. It’s easier to type, but still a challenge.

So all of this is to say I’ve been rather quiet on the forum and haven’t been living on the gallery as much as I like. I still need to leave love for the posters to my September challenge.

OMG, I am so sorry to hear this! I hope you heal real fast, as I too can not imagine not having my right hand, literally for everything!

Oh no! I hope the recovery time goes quickly! I did that years ago - I know what a hassle it is to not be able to use your dominant hand! (((Hugs)))
Happy Scrapping!

Hope your bones heal quickly and you can get back to crafting. Those uneven sidewalks are a menace. I have tripped over a few myself when out walking.

Oh no!! Sounds like something I would do - oh wait I did do that. I tripped over a hose in the driveway and landed on my left arm and broke the wrist. Little worse than you as I was in a cast for a while! Thankfully I am right handed but I can emphasize! 

Hope it heals quickly!

Oh NO!!! So sorry to hear that. Hope it heals up quickly.

My grandson Marcus broke his wrist in 2 places playing football last week. Tackled a kid before making a touchdown and the other kid fell on him with his arm bent underneath.

Very Sorry. It is very difficult to be without being able to use your hand let alone it being your dominant hand. Glad your doing PT. Sending hugs and prayers of healing.
I used to be indecisive; now I'm not sure.
