It has NOT been easy gardening since I broke my hand three + weeks ago.  Although I didn't do this in the garden, whe do YOU do to stay safe in the garden?

The story is below the pics.

Mid-At: Aug 2013 - Stay safe! Img_0413

 My 14 YO Beagle (Scout) fell down the stairs (arthritis is a bear and the doggie dementia don't help).  I caught  him but managed to get a spiral fracture in my outer hand.  The dog is fine.

The hand specialist said the fingers & wrist are NOT broken, but they hurt more.  The outer two fingers are VERY swollen (I can't bend them) and I got a small bug bite on my wrist bone (just where the metal bar of the brace rubs).  OUCH!

SOOOOOO let's be careful out there.

Kim - Best Wishes for very fast healing. I Hope you can be patient during this time of healing. There is really no good time for this to happen.  I understand what its like to be reminded constantly that you can't use that hand like before.  We need our hands for nearly everything!  I try to deal with the restrictions of arthritis in both hands. At some point if you are given exercises for the hand, don't skip them!

Mid-At: Aug 2013 - Stay safe! Empty Mid-Atl. - 9/23/13 Broken hand update

Post  sfg4uKim Mon 23 Sep 2013 - 15:14

It's been a long haul but with physical therapy twice a week I'm probably 80% back.  This weekend I was finally able to hold a shovel and even pull some weeds - about 2 hours on Friday and another hour today. 

Shovel?  What would I be doing with a shovel?  Getting rid of some day lilies and weeds in preparation for a medicinal herb garden.  I'll be wrestling with an old rose bush later in the week. 

So after this week I get to cut down to PT once a week!

Hi Kim,
I am so happy that your hand is healing properly.
The PT is great for the healing.
In no time you will be able to do everything...
