After my collision with a car a month ago, I didn't feel too bad considering how hard I hit. Well, the left wrist got worse instead of better, so off to the Orthopedic Doc. Hmmm, symptoms showed a fractured scaphoid, but the x-rays didn't, so off to get an MRI. MRI indicated a torn ligament between the Scaphoid and Lunar bones - not good, as over time the thumb will collapse into the palm, basically until the thumb is about touching the base of the pinky finger. So long story short, after my conversation last Friday, "Come in Monday for surgery," and surgery on Monday, looks ok in the long run. The amount of grief I got from work is another story, that I am REALLY pissed about. On Monday there was less than an hour between me leaving my office and being under general anesthesia, but hey, I must be slacking off. And how DARE I go to the doctor after surgery for a follow-up visit. Grrrr. And how dare I miss PART of Tuesday...it was just wrist surgery, who cares if it did mean 2 hours in a surgical suite with a breathing tube down my throat. That's what I get for not whining about how something hurts. But at least I looked cool after surgery...see: Anyway, I did get a new motorcycle. Rode it about 250 miles before surgery, tried today, but my wrist wasn't quite ready for that. It's a Kawasaki 650R. Really more of a faired standard than a sportbike, but it looks fast. A nice, tourqey machine. Very comfortable to ride. A heck of a lot of bang for the buck.
