Thanks Steve, Jan and Lori for asking about me (Jan, I may call you about your BAHA). I'm in watch and wait only because I have not seen (or found) a doc yet. For anyone who loves "TMI", let me give you the short version of a long and sordid story. After I shattered my wrist (Dec 16) and wore an external fixator for 7 weeks (think decorative brass towel bar), I developed something called reflex sympathetic dystrophy. I never heard of it, wish I never had, and if I was Catholic I would call it purgatory. After a few months of aggressive hand therapy (35 minutes every hour while at home and thrice-weekly trips to my therapist) I lost my personality and pieces of my soul. I eventually had what the surgeon called a mal-union, meaning my wrist didn't properly heal, so 3 weeks ago I had to start over with surgery to chisel part of my bone off and insert a plate in my wrist held together with screws. I have never been interested in tools! I am using a bone stimulator daily and am hoping there is a good outcome (please send up smoke signals for me). I hope it is okay to post something not brain related; I often say I'm an open book that no one wants to read! I love you all and pray daily for mental/physical peace and healing for this great group.
