My poor pathetic blog. So neglected.

After a forced slow down in my online activities and, well all my activities I think I'm finally getting back to normal. Late August I had a freaky accident with a computer chair.

I was sitting talking to my daughter late one evening with my feet up on my desk when things started slipping... backwards! I reached up to grab the bookcase as I was falling when I heard a POP. Emergency room visit and x-rays showed nothing so off to have a MRI. There it was - my distal bicep tendon completely ruptured.

Surgery to repair by putting pins in the bone to tie the tendon to again soon followed (no more MIR's for me). 8 weeks in a splint not moving my arm or hand. Followed by 3 MONTHS of physical therapy to get my elbow straight again. But the worse part was the 8 weeks of not moving my hand or wrist caused swelling and then that turned fibrous.

Its been a struggle to get my hand and wrist moving again. Every morning I have to go through a set of hand exercises along with warming to be able to grasp my coffee cup. The jury is still out to see if it will come back to normal.

So when you hear someone say "Don't lean back in your chair, you're going to fall"
