I broke my wrist last summer (at Tin House Writers Workshop!), and I posted a similar pic.
It appears houses in general are dangerous! Though techincally yours counts as an on the job injury, no? Alas, this is a wimpy injury in the form of tendinitis brought about by hammering, sawing, nailing, spackling, sanding, painting, mowing, raking, hedge clipping, lifting heavy objects, and all sorts of other things that would allow me to qualify for the Wife Carrying Competition, were I my own wife. Oh, and typing. In theory I’m just on 6 weeks of “take it easy and don’t do anything stupid.”
Clearly my doctor doesn’t know me at all.
