Surgery is scheduled for this afternoon. It seems relatively routine and I don't expect a long recovery time.
The doctor will be replacing the shattered part of the radius bone with a "T" shaped piece of titanium. I said it looks like the pull start of a lawn mower. Someone else has suggested it looks like a wine stopper. I love that description!
I will have a splint for another week and then it is time for Physical Therapy. I have been encouraged by others stating a month in they had the full range of motion in their arm and they were good to go.
The single worst part of the day is no coffee.
I will take any and all love you've got after 1pm today - just keep it coming.
