day 2308 – ambidextrous

while i can’t use my right hand for a lot of things, i’m in the process of building up my skills to be ambidextrous. just a fun little comparison of my penmanship with the right and the left. i’m surprised it doesn’t look half bad with my left hand, but only it looks like an elementary school handwriting which probably took five times as long to complete. maybe i should also pick up how to use chopsticks with my left hand while i’m at it

day 1553 – splint changeĀ 

third time into hand clinic and fourth set of xrays taken within twenty four days. new specialist has taken over my case and i’m still confused with how i’ll be treated. he wasted no time; i get a new splint made right away and hand therapy begins. she assigned four exercises which i had plenty of trouble doing on my first set. i’m instructed these were to be done minimum five times a day. by the end of the day i made much improvement with two of them, but still struggling with the other two. these are very basic motor skills that i’ve lost made me feel useless. i can only hope that if i keep at it, it will get better day by day
