****Healing Strength Sent Stefan's Way****
Get well soon, Love.  You know that we diabetics have problems enough
healing, and bones and the nerves associated with them are the most fragile
for us. So, You must take extra special care to keep your blood sugar levels
in control, and the stress and pain make it harder, I know.  I've been a
good girl since my back surgery, and kept mine at a reasonable level, now
you must do the same. 
I'm also sending extra special good luck wishes on the job interview.  My
altar is well lit with all the candles I've got burning for you.

I had hoped that maybe they would fix the sprain  or apply the cast  
for the fracture and we could still make fighter practice at 7:30.  
Instead about that time I was being admitted to the hospital, and the  
had put my arm in a sling and scheduled my surgery for 7:30 am the  
next morning.

I guess when I do something I don't fool around. I totally broke the  
bone in my upper arm about two inches above the elbow and the two  
pieces overlapped about half an inch. Then they found out during  
surgery Wednesday morning that I also split the bone vertically from  
the break through the elbow.  They put in plate(s) and screws

At least this was my left arm. I'm right handed.

Actually my left arm hasn't been hurting that much since the surgery,  
although there have been times when it really has...  I apparently  
bruised several ribs on my right side though, and those have hurt  
much more. Before the surgery, having the bones
wiggle and rub against each other while my arm rested flat against  
the table, now *that* was weird.

I've never broken any appendages before. Just compressed some  
vertebrae five or six years ago. I'm trying to learn to do things one- 
handed and dealing with things like this sling/cast itching. To  
increase the pressure, it looks like Dell Computer may still be  
interested in my skills since they want to bring me in to talk to the  
board design managers, rather than the mostly systems managers they  
had me talking to in early October. Hope I'm not too grungy or have  
the cast stinking by then. I'll have to get my wife to drive me there  
since I don't think I can drive with the cast over my elbow and arm.

I can still type but I'm rather slow with one hand. So I can comment  
on here and work on the Florilegium continues, just at a much slower  
rate than usual. :-)
