Broken hand x-ray

Today I had to get a removable splint on my hand and arm. The bone is a little slow to heal. It's only been 4 weeks though, so I'm not overly worried about it right now. I can take this splint off to shower, but it has to go back on. I'll get a picture later... The original break (July 17th) showed the bone separated, so to me this xray is looking better than the first one. In all honesty, for as much as I wanted the cast off, it feels good to have it back on. I wear it for the next four weeks. Then I get it x-rayed. If it's healing, perfect! If not, I may need a pin in the bone. But I'm sure it'll heal just fine. I hope..............


eta: Over 1200 views! Funny......... I've made 3 MOO cards of this xray, and they're all gone. I didn't think anyone would want one. :o)


I can't get over the fact over 3000 people have seen this xray as of Dec 15/10.
