Now about me. Because of the difficulty Dr. Warden had in stretching and reattaching my tendons he is taking a very cautious approach, which means that I am still wearing a splint that keeps my arm almost fully extended 24/7. As I am right-handed and the injury is to my right arm this has been more than a small hassle, but I have adapted quite well. As time goes on I have noticed that the bindings on the splint have loosened somewhat and the utility of my right arm has been improving. I can now do things like pull up my pants, whereas before I was unable to even reach my waistband, and movements that formerly caused discomfort now come and go without pain. I took it very easy last week on walking as I was also trying to rehabilitate an upper hamstring strain, but this week I have been able to be more ambitious and extend my range quite a bit. Prognosis on both fronts is very promising!

My next visit with Dr. Warden is scheduled for Monday afternoon, and I am hopeful that I will lose the splint at that time
