Checkup today with the orthopedist to see how my arm is doing. The x-ray shows complete healing. Plus I’ve got most of my range of motion back. Still need to keep working on the rest of it, but I don’t need to go back for any more followup. Hallelujah!

Take that, fake princess! And good for you, Dork Tower!
Hallelujah! I have played golf, and my arm didn’t break when I hit the ball I’m tired and my arm feels like it weighs a ton, but I didn’t feel any pain and I played reasonably well considering it was the first time I’ve been out since last year. I even finished all nine holes, though the last couple were a struggle.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get out two or three more times this week and next, and play in my regular league next week.
A long worthwhile essay about what it was really like in Boston during the past week, and why Friday’s “shelter in place” was not a “lockdown” and certainly not a police state act.
“A lot of people are angry, upset, or worried about the “Boston Lockdown” as a sign that Freedom Is Over. One thing almost all of these people have in common is not having been in Boston at the time. I work in information security and I’m involved with the privacy scene; I understand there’s a lot going on in America to be worried about. I’m writing this to try and explain that the police acted in good faith, they did the best job they could, and this was not, as it may have appeared from the outside, some sort of martial law terrorizing the citizenry.”
