Quick Healing Update

Just realized I kinda buried the headline that I’m healing very well in my last post.

Here’s the skinny.  The motorcycle is dead.  It was totalled with over 10K of damage before they’d looked at the engine.  I did have insurance and it will cover my expenses and a bit.  I broke my right elbow at the radial head, which is healing very nicely and has a lot more usefulness and range of motion.  I am in PT for it and expected to make a full recovery.

The left thumb is broken at its base and the ligament is torn, but not all the way through.  It is still immobilized and will be for at least another 3-4 weeks, at which time I will start PT.  It looks like it won’t require surgery and should heal fine.

My pelvis was severely bruised at the pubic bone, but this has mostly healed with no noticeable ill effects.  I still have a tiny lump at the pelvis, but it’s shrinking every day and the bruising is all gone.

I am finally able to drive (automatic only- yay for Hubby’s new truck), and can wash my own hair and face and such.  I can’t lift weight with the right arm but it’s pretty functional.  I can’t tell you how much I am loving the fact that I am a tiny bit mobile and independent.  It’s been three weeks since the accident today.
