Single Handed

I fell over nine days ago. All the force went onto my right hand as obviously I didn't want to land on my injured knee. My hand was very painful and I couldn't move my elbow at first. I had it examined by two doctors based on the result of the x-ray. I was told that I fractured my radial head bone (somewhere at the elbow) by the ER doctor who attended my case and right away I was referred to an orthopedic specialist. Only by looking at my x-ray film (not my hand physically) I was told that I didn't just fractured my radial head bone, but also it was dislocated from its original location (which I think it's true since I can feel something was twisted when I fell).

of course this is not me ... i have somewhat a
similar cast  for my hand

catz: dang its so hard using only one hand
