  1. Physical Therapy is coming right along- (its a no pain no gain deal) I can write again with a pen and starting to hold a steering wheel (truck) I can open most doorknobs now. I can hold a spoon but hand/wrist is still very weak as tendons are still not happy-swelling is way down-I spared you all from nasty surgery photo I can dig thru pottery boxs for galleries now ( todays chore) I am thinking about throwing a few small bowls in next few week to help with wrist strengthening Looks like another month or two I'll be almost good as new. I wish I had something simple like carpel tunnel which is a east fix ( my friends say who had it fixed) .Mark

  19. I'm out of cast past few days after a two day trip to UCSF in San Francisco doing rehab exercises 4-5 times a day with ice and heat-they are painful-surgeon said pain is my only limiting factor Teaching my fingers/hand to move agin will be a very slow process-The tendons are very sore and now that 3 bones are gone its a bit sore as well Its all up to me now with rehab-I'm going to occupational hand therapist twice a week now.Now the work begins-clay seems a long way off still Thank my stars I did tons of work before surgery to feed my outlets next few months.
