My husband broke me

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Saturday my husband came home from work wanting pizza. He knew also that we didn't need pizza if we weren't going to burn it off. So we rode our bikes and them went on a long ride after lunch. When we pulled in our driveway he thought he would get fresh and grab my butt since he had been staring at it the whole ride. (at one point saying he knows what queen was talking about) Well that decision was a bad one! He ended up wrecking us and I fell directly on my elbow. After 4 days of doctors and tests and what not I have found out I fractured my radial head. I go to the specialist tomorrow, I'm hoping all I need is a cast and not surgery.

To make up for my lack of activity now I have started tracking my food again and being aware of what goes in my mouth. I can't wait to ask when/what I can do for exercise. Today I am in a lot of pain! But, my husband feels terrible and so he's being awesome. He has to help me dress every day and wash my hair. This will be a journey!

    I actually ended up with neither. Apparently with this type of fracture the key to retaining range of motion is early movement. So I am in a sling for a month and I have to exercise each day straightening/bending and rotating my arm. Otherwise it has to stay in the sling and no pushing, pulling, or lifting for 4 weeks. I have been riding the recumbent bike and walking. I just have to do it at a slower rate so not to jar my arm. I ended up doing laps around the gym on Friday. I felt silly, but I was moving... even if the 80 year old passed me. LOL emoticon

    Oh wow! Is it casted or will you need surgery? If the pain is under control you could always add more walking to your life. It is not the most entertaining form of exercise, but at least it gets your body moving. I hope you heal quickly! Broken bones are no fun! emoticon
