Thirty365

This is a project blog. I will be posting at least once a day during my thirtieth year. So far, 30 means roller derby, a metal plate in my wrist, and a new home. An interesting start.

I cut all my hairs off! Well, 3 or 4 inches. It feels crazy short now to me.

My progress so far. First image is from right before I started therapy. Second photo was taken tonight. I’ll be starting my second week of therapy tomorrow. These photos show how far I can straighten my fingers with no help.


This blog is basically just the chronicles of my wrist surgery (and aftermath) and my dogs. Welcome to 30?

My buddy and I are just chilling tonight. I had my first physical therapy appointment today and my hand is aching something fierce. This is going to be a long, arduous process.

My nasty volar splint was replaced with this baby today. Much more comfortable. Unfortunately, my fingers are becoming contractured which means hours of painful therapy. I’m so nervous.

So much sleeping this week. I am in a lot of pain from my wrist surgery, so I am basically choosing to sleep my life away, hoping this is all over soon.
