Well, in less than 24 hrs. I have had some improvement. With the new cast, short arm cast, I am now able to albeit painfully, straighten my arm again. I am trying to toughen it up in baby steps. Next, I can now touch my forefinger to my thumb. First time. I am working to make a fist with the other fingers.
Best news is, the orthopedic doctor said the cellulitis is gone. My primary care doctor didn't think so but he assures me it is. So no more concerns there, but my knee is still swollen and he said one needs to work it out. No drainage needed as it is blood.
I was taken out and treated to lunch. Loved that but I did a drama queen thing. As I have zip appetite I lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks..so I decided to eat that little lunch I chose. Soon thereafter, I came close to fainting. Very embarrassing. I didn't but I felt it coming on. Too much food on a caved in belleh ;-)
Hoping to continue to strengthen and working on eating more.
