But on my first visit, i knew nothing about the "details"
The friendly smile in front is Kristin. She is an expert in hand therapy. She explained very carefully what was going to happen, how I would participate, and other information that i cannot remember. But Karrie, also with a friendly smile, bobbed her head in agreement with all of the above. She has been a patient here before. This time, her injury was job related. She helps people in the theatre world to get in and out of their costumes. Somehow, her hand got under a large shoe while trying to help get her client in or out of trousers.
Me? Well I was not smiling so much. It had been a big day with the PA sawing off my polysomethingorother splint. This put me in a prone position and popping an anti nausea pill.
That prepared the way for a somewhat pleasant encounter with Kristin. ( as noted above ). This was Monday. On Friday I returned to meet Kathy ( sorry no photo ) the other very best hand therapist in Bellevue...no in the state of Washington...probably in the whole USA.
The appointment did not go well. I don't want to talk about it. Kathy said my face was about the color of my hand, so she let me go home.
So we go home and I call Kelly, to make an appointment for the following week.
And now you know what took place in those first two weeks after surgery.
You can see the 7 little screws in the "right" place in my "left" wrist.
that is enough information for one post !
p.s. if you notice some similiarities, it means you actually read my story, it all the similarities are true.
I live an exciting life.
