The Unveiling...

Ladies and Gentlemen...
I take great pride and pleasure in being able to introduce to you, for the first time in....
well... a superlong time...

*drumroll*



My Left Hand!


Totally exciting, I know. But there is no cast, no splint, and I can go commando with my hando.
It still hurts like a.... well, yeah. And I still can't feel anything, so my fine motor is shot. I can't even sense hot or cold as of yet. The rest of my hand, however, is hypersensitive. And let me tell you that is bizarre!

So...still healing, there are ROM exercises to be done and desensitizing to accomplish, all in time.

But for now... I can totally almost hold a beer bottle.
My goal for the summer.
And we all need goals.
