Let me begin from....the beginning:
Power walking on a side walk few days after a snow storm hit (don't ask.) Slip, BAM! Landed on my right elbow. At first, I figured it wasn't that much of a big deal. No, it did hurt, and yes, it was swollen, but I just have this mentality that nothing horrifyingly out of the ordinary can happen to me, whether it be good or bad. But after a few hours, I became scared and went to the hospital.
HOLY SHIT IT WAS BROKE. December 21st, 2012, I broke my first bone
I was miserable, not only because of my elbow, but since I caught a cold right after. I found this out later, but apparently if you have a broken bone, the immune system concentrates on that part and it's difficult to get rid of colds. Unfortunately, I already had a weak immune system from taking arthritis meds (yes, I have RA) and it took me over 2 weeks to get rid of a common cold. Ugh.
Now it's February and I'm all better, thankfully. The bone is healing well also and now I'm doing therapy. Should be fully healed in another month, though I'm not sure if it'll bend and unbend all the way again :/ Still working on it.
Oh yeah! I wanted to take photos of the miniatures I was working on D: Oh well, another time.
