Dallie finally got back home yesterday and stopped by to show us the wonders of modern medicine. In addition to inserting pins into her broken wrist bones, the surgeon has attached a sophisticated metal traction devise to her arm and thumb. A more complicated alternative to a cast, the traction apparatus should keep her bones properly aligned to facilitate healing. Unfortunately, it will be difficult to do much, so it may be a while before she is able to return to work full time.
In spite of her injury, maybe Dallie will be able to enjoy the terrific spring weather we are finally getting. Today, like yesterday, is shaping up to be warm and at least partly sunny. Even if she can't work in her garden, Dallie can sit on her deck with a glass of iced tea and read a good book.
