Progress Update

Hello. It’s me!

These are odd times. The weather has cooled, so we should be enjoying a lot of outdoor activity. Instead, Mom is on the mend, and we’re looking forward to Thanksgiving when Mom is ready to emerge from her “situation”.

She had a good checkup last Friday! Her splint/cast came off, and she now has a brace.

I help out wherever and whenever I can.

And Mom waits … mostly patiently … until she can play pickleball again. Today her bandages came off … she’s maybe 7 weeks away from taking charge with her paddle!

Her wrist is looking pretty good, #amirite?

Under the skin, things look … well … interesting!

That’s what a plate and eight screws look like! And take a look at the little floater of a bone on the right-hand side of the image … that’s break #2 and that one won’t be repaired.

Next checkup is in 13 days. Mom’s fingers are starting to work a lot better. She’s making progress. And I must say, the support I give to the process is helping, no doubt about it!!

  2. Mom (and Dad) would be lost without you, Dash. “Dashing Dash” And Mom’s stupendous rate of healing is mostly to your credit. 😉 Take care, Mom! And don’t rush that pickleball thing . . .
