Pre surgery jitters!
In less than 48 hours my left wrist will be permanently fused, leaving me with a forearm and fingers, but also with no more pain. I'm having conflicting thoughts about this. I'm excited to no longer be in pain, but nervous to lose the last bit of function in my wrist. My wrist has gotten even worse over the past few weeks. Instead of just being bent back, a few weeks ago I popped a bone in my forearm and now my wrist is cocked to the left as well. Tonight I will take pictures and post them, mainly I would like pictures of the way my wrist looks now because after surgery I will have a sizeable scar running down the back of my arm. Never again will my wrist look the way it does now, and I am going to miss that. I will not be able to post the first week of recovery as I won't be allowed to use my fingers at all. The plan is to stay in bed with Charlie and my LMN movies I have on the DVR - if Chris will be kind enough to put the DVR in the bedroom. If we can find the battery charger we'll upload pictures of everything next week after the first week of recovery.
