Was down at new shop on Sunday helping out. Went to get an ice cream and tripped over broken paving stone. I knew I had done something major to my arm as it was at a funny angle and the pain was so intense. But it was not until the xrays that I realised it was broken in 2 places and the elbow dislocated.
Until now I did not realise quite how many things you need both hands for, including typing. This is taking me forever to do:( Friends are keeping my shop going, my hairdresser is kindly washing my hair for me, and a friend is cooking me meals.
But I can't knit or do any of my craft work. The painkillers are making so tired I can't even read a book.
Just taking the lid off a bottle of juice is a major feat. Not to mention how heavy a full arm plaster cast is. The sling round my neck is cutting in like mad. Surely there is something more comfortable than this?
