Just in time for Halloween, I had a hideous surgery to repair a fractured elbow. This entailed receiving a nerve block that made my hand feel like a dead appendage, which was quite spooky indeed.
Spooky Dead Hand
I'm supposed to keep the arm elevated above my heart (which isn't conducive to sitting here and typing), so that is all for now.
Actual e-mail sent to the post-op contact person the night of my surgery:
OMFG, WHAT DID THEY DO TO ME WITH THIS DAMN TORTURE SLING?
