Wrist Watch

Original Injury: December 18th, 2007

Eleven months in, and I just had a final evaluation by a orthopedic surgeon in Austin. Where do I stand?

Alignment - excellent
Range of Motion - 99%, pushups are no problem
Grip- 80 to 85%; obviously not thrilled about this, but it will improve slowly

The doc concluded that the surgery in Japan was properly done, with A+ results. I don't need to have the titanium plate removed anytime in the near future unless there's significant pain or problems. I am set for New Zealand.

To celebrate my injury and raise wrist awareness, I will be hosting a Wrist Anniversary Party in Austin. Come one, come all. First drink is on me if you've broken your wrist.
