Triquetral avulsion fracture.
That’s the name of the break I sustained.
I slipped and fell in this ditch Sunday evening in our upper yard as I was looking for
coyotes in the hill on the other side of our property.
I was wearing flip flops (not smart) and my hand broke my fall, but then I broke my hand.
SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT… At first I thought it was just a sprain or torn ligaments, but the pain was really, really bad, so I had it X-rayed and the doc confirmed my suspicions.
I’m in a removable cast for about six weeks — no weightlifting but I can do anything else that doesn’t cause pain.
My hand is super swollen and all bruised up, too.
I might not be able to lift weights, but there’s nothing to prevent me from shopping!
I never did see any coyotes but I snapped a pic of this amazing hawk in our
Coyotes and Fireworks (myersbowman.wordpress.com)
Birds are singing, the sun is out, the sky is blue, and there’s a gentle breeze.
It seems like the perfect time for a couple of Sunday morning songs and a few snapshots of our backyard and a street view.
