Thanks. Hand is still numb. Well fingers at least. I assume that will go away as swelling is reduced. Not quite a fan of some of the pain meds..... but they sure help.

Hope you get healed up in a timely manner.

Ouch! Looks painful. Get healed up, don't push it too soon. Those pain meds are the devil. Get off them asap. I'll send you some miralax...

Better looking back at a surgery than ahead to one. Hope you mend soon.

Stitches came out today. Dr. Said they are looking good. Started the first day of PT. Got a few exercises to.do.from home. Pretty tempting to string up the light weight 37# BP Cougar and fling few 1716's...... I wonder how long I can hold off.

Hang back and do the pt. The bow will come in time. Very important to let the healing happen.

We will see Saturday. New bow comes in the mail. No way I won't fling a couple. They are pretty good. I put a wheel barrel to gather yesterday. Had to take a couple breaks and my hands got stiff. A little sore today though. Grip still sucks. Can't open large jars yet.
