I Am Made of Titanium

  When I broke my wrist it was one of the scariest things that has happened to me because it happened so quickly and the pain was so intense. It felt like someone had dropped a brick or a bowling ball on my wrist. I couldn't feel my fingers, but my wrist was unbearably painful and about three times larger than normal. I rushed to the ER where they actually had to put my bones back in place by "rebreaking" them. They had me be awake when they popped my wrist back in place, but I blacked out.  Later I visited the bone doctor and they said my wrist was actually broken in three places, that my thumb was out of place, and that my forearm wasn't straight. I had to have a surgery to help me heal faster and they placed 9 titanium screws into my wrist. The white tights I am wearing in these pics help prevent blood clots in my legs. It was a crazy ordeal, but I thought I would share my story with you.

thanks it still doesn't hurt but it's a lot more bearable than it was before. Before I couldn't even use my hand at all and now I'm starting to be able to move my fingers.
