Is your hand feeling a bit better? Things are going about the same here, still trying to staighten things out & unpack. I have to admit I'm not in that much of a hurry because frankly some days I just don't feel like it. This state isn't like Maine of Fl. where its easy to bring stuff to Goodwill, infact there isn't even a goodwill except for Providence & thats too far to go.


Nik & I have been trying to go to the beach & have made it a few times I find it very relaxing & she loves riding the waves on her body board.

Its understandable your aggravated that you tripped. I would be also. Tripping & be sore would have been bad enough but breaking something would have totally pissed me off. I'm so used to doing things myself I would go nuts not being able to do just the simple things. So I understand how you feel. When the cast comes off will the plate & screws stay in? I don't know much about those things. sorry if I sound stupid.


I broke my shoulder when I was a kid & every once in awhile my shoulder hurts enough to take Advil for a few days. never did that before so I'm guessing w/age arthritis has set in.


Hope it all gets better & I hope your elbow is ok iys probably just briuised.

My sister broke her wrist about 2 yrs ago and she also had a screw put in during surgery to reset it.

Fran, that would be my choice also. Why have surgery if it isn't needed.

Isn't it funny when someone says that had a screw or plate put in, how we think of that as the kind of screw we put in our screen door, or plate -- I picture my dinner plate size.

I'm glade you are ok and the surgery went well. Most of the time adults don't have plates and screws removed but children do as they are still growing. Adults only normaly have them removed if their body rejects them.
