On the disabled list

I knew I hurt my hand at Saturday's Gladiator Rock'n Run in Terrell.  I just didn't know how bad it was. I made a doctor appt to get my hand checked out. The swelling had not gone down and I still had limited movement.  My first stop was x-ray.  Thankfully I didn't have to lay on the cold table.

Once the x-rays were done, I was off to see the Doc.  The news wasn't good. I have a broken pinkie finger at the base.  I'll have to visit a specialist to see if a pin is needed.  You can see the break below.  Just my luck, its my left hand and I am left handed.

j’espère que cela n'est pas trop grave et que cela se remettra sans complication

Brittle bone disease? Osteoporosis?

The break is pretty obvious and must be pretty painful, too.
