    I'm sorry and I sure you hope you heal fast. Do the hunt and peck with one finger. I'm ambidextrous, write with both hands, you can learn too, it's not that hard.

    Oh, you'll be on. What else do you have to do? [​IMG] You'll just learn to use the other hand which in your future could be a very useful thing. Sorry for your Oops. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh I'm sorry 12 weeks seems so long, I hope it flies by for you.

    (I hate typing with one hand - no matter which one it is)

    just think, it could be worse. Last year my mom broke both wrists at the same time. Practice writing with you other hand, they are right those who said it may come in handy (again) in the future. I can print better than write with my opposite hand. Did they mention physical therapy after you get your cast off? You may need to give your muscles a little help to get back into the swing of things. Feel better [​IMG]
