|(A little flash..I'm a diva I needed a couple angles)|
Now that I have learned my fate, or my hand has for that matter, I'll spill what I am really looking forward to in
Getting Rid of the Gym Sock: If you can tell from the pictures, this splint is artfully crafted. It is made up of one "nude" sock (doesn't it really look JUST like skin?) with the toes cut off, and some sort of plaster-velcro contraption that makes me feel like it's morphin' time. Thankfully my splint hasn't interrupted my running schedule, but it does get quite toasty under there and has given a whole new meaning to the term "gym sock"...
Ponytails: Now that the swelling has gone down and I've learned how to cheat a bit and fanangle this thing, ponytails have made a slight improvement. But let me tell you, it was touch and go for awhile. I was almost that girl with my sweaty hair flailing about at the gym (which probably would have cause another injury). If you ever have some downtime (don't kid yourselves, I know you're all wondering), try attempting the art of the one-handed ponytail... YEAH
Typing: Laptops, I've mastered. Keyboards are more of a struggle. Imagine if you can having an orthopedic shoe attached to your hand at all times. On top of having to adapt to what I like to call the "hovering hand" (the left hand dangles over the keyboard perpendicular to the keys so as not to hit all sorts of various buttons with my wrist muzzle), I am sure I have scared many of the undergrads in my office suite with my choice words of frustration.
Double Fisting: Need I say more..?
