Arm is finally out of sling; now I am slightly more useful. Still can't hold anything in left hand but now can at least make use of left arm for basic tasks. Also, can use fingers (sparingly) so that typing is only a partial chore instead of full-blown PITA.
Have found new respect 4 txtspk.
Dr's appt. next Fri to get stitches out, unless the itching drives me mad and I rip the bandage off earlier to enjoy a decadent scratch.
Still on Percocet for pain although taking it less often.
Enjoy your weekend.
