The villain: a heavy metal ornamental coffee pot, shown below.
Or, more accurately--the rim of this heavy metal coffee pot which fell off the top of a refrigerator and made contact with...
The victim: my poor left wrist.
Although it is rather hard to see, I have a sizable swollen bump & some nice yellowing/greening of the skin!
After about 4 days of icing it and reading on the Internet the ramifications of not having a break set properly--Arthritis, for one, I decided that I had enough aches and pains already & went to an orthopedic group. Two and a half hours and three X rays later, the diagnosis is a badly bruised bone with swelling of the muscles,ligaments, tendons in the area. It's not too sore but it needs to rest & be iced & could take up to 6 weeks to completely heal!
Makes typing/crafting/doing almost anything a little hard! Good thing I'm right-handed!
