    James, that's more a tribute to the fine folks on this forum, than to me. My faults dwarf my better qualities. I've known good men, and at best, I'm fit to walk 10 steps behind them.

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    Thanks for the good wishes guys and gals. Wearing this weird splint till the thirteenth. It's got a rubber band that attaches to my thumb and holds it in place. I can take it off to shower, which is great. Not uncomfortable. It's custom molded to my arm, like a kydex sheath. Very small scar, which is a disappointment. I was hoping for a big jagged pirate scar.;)

    Bet typing with that thing on is interesting. Have you smashed the space bar to smithereens yet? :D Once you are able to do without the masonry on your arm, make sure you work consistently to get the range of motion back. Best wishes for a quick and complete recovery.
