So I stumbled off the steps to my driveway on the morning of New Year’s Day and broke my elbow — actually a closed fracture of the radial end. Ouch. If I were a doctor, I couldn’t legally post this. Frankly, though, if someone wants to steal my identity by doing the same thing to their arm bone (I can’t really see the break…),  more power too them. It really hurts!

One of the common symptoms of this injury is “inability or difficulty in turning the forearm (palm up to palm down or vice versa).” Thought it was my wrist but I was wrong. Going to do wonders for my fitness regime, I’m sure. ;-0
