you need sylables? i got a mouthful

so
i either have Heterotopic ossification(aka HO), or a deep bone infection. the doctor is definitely leaning towards the ossyfing tissue, since infection at this stage would be unlikely, unless something bacterial adhered to the metal in my arm via the bloodstream while all the healing veins were going out, but before the wound site was sealed internally.

i am hoping i got HO. since infection means eventually, they would have to re-operate to remove the hardware and infected bone.

back in the brace, off p/t, limiting motion as much as possible, and keep everything that can be crossed, crossed.

angry at the world. tired of quazi-invalidism. at least there was no hardware failure or fracture shift.

i just made a superman joke to g about this - unabated, my arm will end up looking like doomsday's, with none of the nifty kryptonian-slaying benefits.

truth
cuz then i'd be dead...
seriously though, i've read too many horrifying accounts as a result of this injury to be too squicked out anymore - i hadn't found that one though. ghoulishly fascinating, thanks. i'll be thinking of that whenever i hear one of my (horrible) joints creaking, popping or otherwise being louder than they should be.

Oh for heaven's sake
That blows. Why must everything be so complicated with you?
Ish, well, here's hoping it won't require more surgery, because I'm sure that's getting a little old at this point.
