Good things about my splint

I'm so happy to have this splint instead of a cast. Let me count the ways:
  1. it's ok if it gets a little wet, so i don't have to be as careful in the rain/showering etc.
  2. it smaller than a cast, so i can wear most of my normal pants again
  3. it's more comfortable
  4. i can take it off, wash, lotion, apply heat, and massage
I almost fell yesterday, it was really terrible. I was getting my folder for today's class and I lost my balance. I actually hopped around for almost a minute trying to get my crutches back under me and stable, and I finally made it to the tv and steadied myself on it. I was shaking for about 10 minutes afterward. But it also occurred to me that it probably would have looked really humorous to anyone watching, almost like something out of a movie like Home Alone. haha I can laugh because I didn't actually fall, but it was really scary.


  1. Yikes! You be careful hun! We're all praying for your healing, not the oposite! But I'm glad you managed to catch yourself. Someone's looking out for you... :)
    God bless!
