If it didn't look so grotesque I would add a photo of my just out of the cast pitiful shrunken-yet-swollen arm and hand. Arm flesh is compressed due to being so tightly confined within the long arm cast. My hand is swollen due to a lack of movement and a tight cast! It looks horrible so I'll spare you. ;-) I do have a brace though to help support the bone for a few weeks. Therapy is badly needed and will start sometime next week.
My youngest took me to the orthapaedic clinic as he has done since the first day. He took me for a celebratory supper afterward. I even had dessert. No more fainting feelings now as I have begun to eat. I lost so much weight I pull my fully fastened and zipped jeans up over me. That will end as I am remembering to eat now. Before I didn't really eat as it didn't occur to me to. That's done. But before I started eating again, by late afternoon I was woozey and fainty feeling when I didn't eat and I still didn't have a clue! ;-) I think I get it now!!
Just checking in. xoxoxo
