    I'll be in your pocket Mig, but I will wear a face mask so I don't pass any of my germs about!! Hope the splint will arrive quickly to help your hand with support.

    I'll be there too but may need a few elbow-jabs to keep me awake; awfully tired at the moment.

    Good luck, hope you have the new one quickly!

    The occy health hadn't got the referral letter from the consultant so she just read thru my notes then examined my hand talked about operations in the future and got this thing out that looks like half of a cut off glove ,it fits round your knuckles and the finger looking parts are then brought down between your fingers believe it or not it does bring the fingers straight,it's all held in place by Velcro .She did say when she actually gets the letter if needs be then she will be in touch. It's a beautiful beige colour . Mig

    Sorry I missed this Mig. Obviously if I'd been there, things would have turned out much better :wink:
    I've seen the future, and it's Velcro :wink:
    Beige is the new black 8)
    I hope it helps, if not, there's always wine :D

    I have many fetishes, Marie, including ice-cream men, especially when they're dressed in beige :wink:

    Mig, I hope it works. In my day wrist splints (There were only wrist splints) came in NHS specs pink. They were awkward and cumbersome by they really did a job and my wrists are now fused i n the very useful straight position.
