Foggy, foggy diagnosis

On Thursday, my internist’s office called to say they’d gotten a report saying I hadn’t broken anything. I got my hopes up. On Friday, the fracture clinic told me I had a broken scaphoid. If you’re going to break your wrist, that is NOT the bone to break. I have an appointment a week from tomorrow. Since a broken scaphoid can mean casting for anywhere between 6 weeks and 6 months, plus surgery, plus physical therapy, I’m choosing to believe my internist’s office even though I’m pretty sure they are wrong. Denial is such a gift.
