Good News

It's been one week since I hurt my hand and I was happy that today was my appointment with the orthopedic specialist. I was worried about what was wrong, but I just wanted to know how bad it actually was.

After The Wife and I filled out reams or paper work we go back to a room and the doctor decides to see how much pain she can inflict. I scream at least two times, I may have screamed more, but I may have blacked out from the pain. It is discovered that I did not break a bone in my hand and my tendon is not torn. So what happened then? Well the two tendons in question pass through a little "tube" in your hand. I broke the tube and the tendon's popped out then went back in, so I have tissue damage and I now wear a nifty splint and can't lift anything for 4 to 6 weeks.

I am very happy that I do not have to have surgery, but I am a little sad. JDOG-17 did a story about a physical therapy center using the Nintendo Wii for therapy. I was trying to figure a way that I could get one and have worker's comp pay for it. I also will not be getting a helper monkey.
