Aside for Wrist

My wrist is in sad, sad shape. At PT today, it had less than 2 degrees of movement in any direction, there’s shoulder involvement, the the internal stitches are not only not dissolving as they should, there’s infection in it. I’ve started antibiotics for the infection, but if the stitches don’t dissolve, they’ll have to open up my palm again to take them out.

I have 4 goals: to resolve the infection/stitches issue, get some movement in the wrist and shoulder – enough to get fully dressed, be able to drive again, and be able to hold a pen/lift anything over 6 ounces/eat right handed again. That would be enough to go back to work. The rest can come after that.
