Fractured Metacarpal

Fractured MetacarpalNot wanting to be outdone by my Mum who broke her arm in New Zealand recently, yesterday (after 33 years with no broken bones) I managed to break the left little finger metacarpal.

I was cycling back from town when the chain slipped off the gears throwing the bike to the left and me into some iron railings. My little finger hyper flexed into my palm and snapped the metacarpal in the process.

I’m now bandaged up (no cast) and typing with one hand plus two fingers and a thumb!
