Monday Mimisms ~ Send Bubble Wrap

 We were trying to get home ahead of this storm. Sunday....a week ago. My mother and I had been shopping and to dinner....oh, there is just too much to tell. Let me make this easier on myself and cut/paste what I posted on Facebook. Otherwise, I shall report in between the little white pills that make me see Disney characters.

ok ...in this newfound world of one-hand typing there will be no punctuation, no capitals and no emoticons. i have broken my radius/radial bone, chipped the ulna, torn a ligament in my left foot, sprained my hip and a myriad of other bruises from a fall on wet slippery grass last night (last Sunday) that landed me in a pile of large rocks and roses. in an arm cast and sling and leg boot...but the good news is i had just had a pedi and mani and all
digits are sticking out with french tips....imagine smiley emoticon...i am determined to stay positive even if the surgeon tells me tomorrow i have to have pins to save my piano playing ...radius is broken all the way through...i am nothing if not thorough. the pain is something else but then there are the drugs...hope they start to work soon. i am taking one minute at a time. peace globes gotta fly in 60 days with or without all my limbs. imagine smiley emoticon

are we long lost-sisters? hoping you don't need surgery but if you do hoping for a surgeon as skilled as the one who put me back together after a compound fracture of my radius AND a severely dislocated elbow. hope those pills are dealing with the pain effectively. kudos on the one handed typing. i became pretty good at it myself and sometimes i still revert to it.

awwww Mimi, save that piano playing! Look after yourself *hugs*

Charles Gramlich said...

Ouch. That sounds a bit harsh for a slip. I hope you heal up quickly.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - I know. Peace globes will forever fly no matter what.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lime - We must be! O ye of experience, tell me this pain goes away sometime soon. Half pills are only taking the edge off but at least I am awake. Sort of.
.
There has been so much swelling that it is hard for my doctor to say anything with certainty yet. Now that it is going down we have the newfound problem of jarring it inside the cast no matter what I do, which brings more pain. I am so not amused.

No more complaining......thank you.I am sorry you had to go through this. Did you get full mobility back .... imagine question mark

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - piano....trying not to worry. You're a musician. I know you get it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - It was more like a slip tumble slide thing complete with a bed of large rocks waiting for my delicate queen bones....

OUCH...on so many levels. Sending pain-free peace vibes your way.

i had horrendous pain until they switched the pain killers i was taking and added a muscle relaxer. don't be afraid to ask them to switch if need be. it was a nurse who recognized post-surgically that i was not getting adequate relief. i mean, i noticed of course, but had no idea a different drug would do a better job.

I can't honestly say i got 100% back but i'd say i got 95%, which is far more than they estimated i'd regain. for me, i required surgical hardware to hold it all together but then it later had to be removed. so in total i had 2 surgeries and 6 1/2 months of intense occupational therapy. i was blessed with an amazing surgeon and OT. it was a lot of hard work too so when they tell you it's time to start doing things with your hand do it, even if you're still casted and they say to make sure you're wiggling your fingers. is it your dominant or non-dominant hand?

Mimi Lenox said...

Debi - Thank you. I am a walking ouch.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lime.... we should talk. No, it was not my dominant hand. I am righthanded and I hurt pretty much everything on the left side. But both hands are dominant to a pianist.

I am doing the finger wiggling. He said it would help me get a head start on physical therapy. I hope so.

Thanks for your concern.
