Do You Know the Status of Your Scaphoid?

Do you know the answer to this question?

What is your scaphoid?
I'll show you.

I return to my original query: What is the status of your scaphoid? Have you ever worried about it? Been concerned about it?
Neither had I. Until yesterday. My left scaphoid (and most of my left hand and forearm) is now encased in goretex and plaster. 

Do you feel bad for me?

Full story tomorrow.

Linking up to S for Stupid smashed scaphoid at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.

  15. On the bright side- at least it's not swimming season yet- cause the 'waterproof' casts end up just stinking horribly. Should I send some get well truffles?

  16. I learned about the scaphoid bone in anatomy last year. It breaks when you put your hands out when falling. Thank goodness for your scaphoid taking the hit...it must have saved you from doing a face plant... (Thinking postively!) Sorry you got hurt... :o(

  17. Looks like someone gets a break from cooking these days!! Sorry you are hurt, though.

  18. Hope you are mending well. Have had hand surgery and you really miss that hand when you're in a cast.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh no! Doesn't look good at all! Hope you mend quickly!!!

  20. ???? What did you do NOW? *sigh* You need a nanny. So sorry - hope it heals quickly?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have to say I have never heard of a Scaphoid and I wouldn't know how you go about hurting it. Sorry though - that does not look fun. Can you change the blue up for pink or maybe hot orange??

  22. Oh my! This should prove to be a very interesting story!

  26. Ouch!!! That looks like it hurts a heck of a lot! Well, at least it's on your left hand (assuming that you're not left-handed, right?) Hope it heals quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ouch. I feel your pain. I fractured the same bone in my right hand (yes, I am right handed) when I fell skiing. Wait, I wasn't actually skiing at the time. I had stopped going down a long run and when I was ready to resume, I lost my balance in a ditch made by a grooming machine.

    I didn't think much of it until two days later when I went to see the doctor because I was sick. I asked him to look at it. He didn't like it, sent me for an x-ray, then immediately to a hand specialist. No cast needed, but I did need a splint for a few weeks.

    Of course, filling out the paperwork at the hand doc was fun with a swollen and very sore hand.

    Mend well.

  28. I'm coming to see what happened as soon as I finish this comment!

    I feel really really sorry for both you and your scaphoid (even thought I don't really know what it is yet!)

    Thanks for a suspenseful link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "S".

    A+
