Hi hun, hope you feel a bit better soon, I have had my fair share of dog related injuries over the years so can sympathise.

Hope splint isn't too heavy (makes mental note to ask weights of medical items if this situation arises whilst on LT). Seriosuly tho it sucks but I'm sure you will have your usual good weigh in tomorrow to cheer you up x

oh babe, what are you like - bloody mutts. Take care, and I'd say a splint is at least 3lbs! :D

Ouch!!!! I am sorry to hear about your accident. I broke my right hand nearly 4 years ago and had to wear a splint that you could take off and on using velco. Not sure how much it weighed. I had to get my eldest to brush my hair, do up my bra and fasten my shoes! I felt helpless and had to really knock the painkillers back.

Hope you aren't in too much pain and good luck tomorrow.

Poor Helen, sorry to hear this. It must be awful having to have things done for you ie get washed etc.
Maybe you could take it off just for the WI? (But not if it's strapped on and not meant to be removed before the 10 days)
Keep up with the painkillers and hope you feel better soon. xx
