I am Even Steven

Yes the post title is a Seinfeld Reference, but I sure did even things up last week.  If you recall back in 2008 I broke a bone in my left wrist (interestingly enough Broken Scaphoid Bone is a consistent search term for hits here).  In a snow related fall last Wednesday I now broke a bone in my right wrist, after finally seeing an orthopedist today, I now know this time it is a fracture of the Triquetal Bone.

Here is my cast for the next 4 weeks, I see the doctor again the day before I leave for Lotusphere, I am hoping (maybe I am being overly optimistic) to be making the trip cast free, but we will see.  The cast offers me more movement, and use of my fingers, the the splint they put on in the Emergency Room last week, so I have some use of my right hand, including a little typing.
