Playing one-handed

Photo on 8-20-13 at 8.51 AM
Dr. Dirtbag is dealing with a fractured left 5th metacarpal. This makes both typing and peak-bagging difficult, so blogging will be limited for the next month or so. The fracture looks simple, so hopefully keeping it in a brace will allow it to heal with full function. I am immensely grateful to Jonathan for arranging an x-ray, some consultation, and a splint, and to Sierra for setting and splinting the bone (with anaesthesia, even!). Their generosity allowed me to avoid a costly encounter with the health care industry.

    That sucks Sean. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

      I just saw an orthopedist, and he said I should be fine on anything less than class 4, so… I guess it’s on again.

      Nope — eastern Sierra. Hopefully my hand will permit some backpacking here…
