Allison's Arm

As many of you may know, my wife fell in our parking lot a couple of months ago and broke her wrist and hand pretty badly.  Fortunately, we're through the rough part now, as she had the last of the pins & screws removed from her hand last week.  The surgery to remove the pins was outpatient, and she was home within a couple of hours.  Later that night, she already had significantly more movement in her wrist and fingers than she had since July when she fell. 

She's not been in to see her physical therapist since then, but I'm sure when she goes tomorrow he'll likely be quite surprised at the progress she's made.  Next week she goes in to see the surgeon again, and I expect he'll remove the stitches while she's there.  Overall, she's really doing great!
