Valerie : No Surgery Required!
Diary entry posted Wed 9:28am 22 January 2003

Well . . . I have some good news. Had an appointment with my OS last night. No surgery should be necessary. My fractures are "comminuted" (11 pieces), and she was originally concerned that the closed reduction would slip. However, he x-rays look OK, so she will not need to see me for 2 more weeks.

I was so pleased to not have to start all over again that I almost did not mind my cast for about an hour. It is really cold here in Boston, and I think the temperature is making me a little sore.

I am getting around OK in the wheelchair at work and with the crutches and walker at home. Tomorrow night I am going to try to go out to dinner with some girlfriends and my crutches. It will be my first solo flight (no husband), but I am really looking forward to it. I think he is looking forward to it too!

I never thought that I would miss all the little things so much - daily showers, driving, turning over in bed without much effort . . .
