Thank you Dr. Greene & Tiffany!

No video because I’m currently a mess – #thankscovid – but wanted to give everyone a quick update. This pic was taken 9 days post surgery while waiting for a new smaller splint to give me a bit more mobility. It worked like a charm, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get a little faint, sitting there staring at that unrecognizable position, unable to move it much, and in a fair amount of pain. But now, over a week later and in more of a brace, things are moving along great! Everyday I’m getting more and more strength and range of motion. Just need the swelling (still!) to go down some, and I need about 10 more degrees of supination before I can wrap my hand around the fretboard, but I’m feeling optimistic.

Huge shout outs to @shoreortho and Dr. Greene, Tiffany and the rest of the team for screwing me back together (bonus points to Tiffany for talking me off the ledge when Dr. Google had me CONVINCED that my arm was going to simply fall off late one night). I can’t recommend them enough.

If you’re stupid enough like me to get back on a skateboard 30+ years after the last time you rode one and you FOOSH yourself into a broken anything, you won’t find a better team to take care of you.
As soon as I kick the COVID that knocked us all out this week, I’ll start PT and hopefully be back up on stage in a couple weeks if not sooner. Keep your fingers crossed. Still plenty of summer left and I have a lot of catching up to do. See you soon, friends – ☮️ peace ✌️
