A Young Man Sat And Held My Hand Today ...

Adventure before dementia

No - nothing romantic ... not that you should be thinking that my luck was changed (LOL) - 

No - I had some treatment from my physiotherapist - a young man called Josh ... who does happen to be quite cute ... No wonder I was early for the appointment!!

He was really pleased with the amount of mobility that we got back into the "OK" joint of the finger with 15 minutes. 

I now have to maintain that - and in 2 weeks it will be the damaged joint's turn.

The skin is now covering the finger (YAH) - but very thin ... so has to have a special dressing back on for another week.

The one main problem I have to overcome this week is just trying to use the hand normally - 8 weeks (tomorrow) and I am very protective of the hand.  Now I have to learn to relax and move naturally - while the padding is on will (hopefully) give me the confidence I need to just pick up my life again.

Glad to hear that you're hand is doing better.
There is no way for you to still have that bandage in May :P

Thanks

Don't know about the bandage - may get an extra hug of sympathy!!!

YAY progress (and a pretty therapist to boot!). Just keep on this road and you'll be back to normal in no time.

Heheheh cute doctor - seems some good things are coming out of the injury!
7th-Feb-2008 10:38 pm (UTC)
Yes - he is cute.

Good news all round!!

Wonderful news! And yay for cute physios...hehe
8th-Feb-2008 07:03 pm (UTC)
Yes - most of the physios are female ... so I was doubly lucky!!

Whoo hoo!
Glad the hand is healing up nicely.
Does EMMH know about the cute physio? hehehe :-D

Love that icon - yes, bendy1 does do some great icons.

No - I am keeping the physio (and the improvement) a secret - telling EMMH that the aching is getting worse - I need more TLC!!!!

You should just limp on in to the EMMH room. Tell him you were in a battle with a big baddie. I hear he likes those slayer types ;-)
8th-Feb-2008 08:19 pm (UTC)
Yes - but what if he decides to "defend my honour" nad takes off to fight the baddy himself!!
8th-Feb-2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
Oh nooo... the way to get around that is easy. Tell him "If you think I look bad, you should see the other guy. He's dust."
hehehe :-D

Thanks - just the answer I need ... I shall learn that ASAP
11th-Feb-2008 12:18 pm (UTC)
*g* nothing better than someone pretty to help you heal ;)

Best of luck with the trying to use the hand the normal way

*hugs*

Thanks - it is so easy to keep protecting it ... but am trying to be a good girl ... honest!

Mind you - if the finger is still injured in May - don't I deserve an extra hug of sympathy??
