helen99: A windswept tree against a starlit sky (Default)
Holding steady at 3-4 pounds with the left and 5-6 with the right for now. For the first time, I could snap the fingers of my left hand in time to music today. Also, I pulled a ticket from the parking lot entrance with thumb and forefinger without a problem with my left hand.

The wrist can bend backward all the way and forward most of the way. Today the therapist applied weight to the back of my hand, bending it forward as much as it would go without damaging pain, and then had me push back. It felt like I was pushing really hard, but she commented on how weak it was. That's exactly the exercise I'll need to take it the rest of the way. I see her once more in two weeks and that's it. Most of the progress has been made when she challenges it. I think have enough techniques to work on it so I can take it the rest of the way myself, though. At least that's what she seems to think, and I tend to agree.
