Ever Been One-Handed?

me with splint 003

Charlie Bear here…with an acknowledgement to those of you who really are one-handed or who are challenged in other ways. This one is my Mom Peep. She fractured her elbow so she’s doing everything one-handed: dressing, fixing morning coffee, brushing her teeth and typing left-handed. It’s a challenge.

So I’ve decided that I’m a therapy dog. I snuggle by her and try to comfort her. What do you do, people and dogs alike, when someone you love is hurting or struggling?

Wiggles and woofs,
Charlie Bear

    Don’t know how this blog got all mixed up or did you injure the same one in the same way again? Yes; mom Peeps is right handed also, but she can manage to do a little with my dominant right hand to help her left one out., My right wrist has had a visit from uncle Arthur for a long time and we nor Drs. can’t get him to leave so she wears a splint on it which she can take on & off when it gets bothersome to her, it helps the pain a lot, but she does most things with her left one, just as your peeps does. Keep her under control C.B. & watch over her good and i’ll try to do the same to my peeps.
    Happy Nursing to you,
    Beaugie.

      Beaugie,
      Nope, Mom Peep did not reinjure her arm. She’s good now (though it aches her a bit when it rains or she over-exerts — I guess like your Mom Peep).
      I’m taking good care of her, like you do!

      Yes, she did get the cast off…sooner than expected! She’s doing really well and has only a little residual pain (like when she over-exerts or it rains).

    So sorry for your Mom Peep, Charlie Bear! I’m Oreo and I also take good care of my Mom Peep who is sick a lot. I can tell when her blood sugar goes too high or too low and I remind her to check it. My Dad Peep has seizures and I stay with hlm when that happens to him. So I have a big job, just like you do. Keep up the good work CB!

    I hate to ask, but is your Mom right-handed? If so, she chose the wrong elbow to fracture. OUCH! I can’t imagine how that must have hurt. Take good care of her, Charlie. Our Mom Peep sends her loves and prayers. Skippy and Bailey Hubler

    Wow, what a bummer! When I had a cut tendon in my right hand in my youth, I was supposed to wear a removable cast on my hand/arm which I ended up ignoring! Just too many things to do….I don’t recommend that and I recommend doing what the doctor orders. Ignoring exercise that he told me to do was bad news….

    That said, my Rascal was a real good arm supporter! Keep up the good work, Charlie…..

    B, J., take care of yourself no matter what it takes to do it!

    Charlie Bear, how in the world did she do that? Chasing you with one of your chasing fits, or something else, maybe she does not want to say and under the circumstance that is ok. Take care of both of yourselves and hurry up and get well.

      She slipped on her shiny wood floor. Geez. I try to steal her little footie socks, but she had them on and her feet slid out from under her. Yikes.

    Dear BJ, we’re so sorry about your accident (we assume George hasn’t beaten on you.or you on him). We also hope you will still be at MH-knowing you as we do, we’re sure you will be; nothing stops you! Still, we understand the brevity of the current post: much too hard to type everything with one hand, especially the one you don’t “favor.” Lots of love and hugs, and sundaes will be on us, under the circumstances.
