Wrong turn:-)

Exactly a month before, on a Sunday while playing cricket with children (!), I broke the middle finger of my right hand while making a wrong turn. It was a Sunday afternoon. I decided to get treated at G.H, Trichy. Fortunately, Dr. Sri Hari was on duty that day and so admission, X-Ray and PoP (Plaster of Paris) were all done within 3 hrs time.
One month after, while the cast is off..I am quite at difficulty stretching my hand with striking and shooting pain from the wrist to the shoulder with the wrist and elbow hurting the worst. The Doctors' say, the Plaster technician did a bad cast job resulting in nerve compression. I am on medication to relieve that and in the next few days will know how it goes.
The villagers, literally at every turn and every day, have been insisting (nearly hounding) me to go for traditional healers of oil cast as they feel PoP will harm. I tried my best convincing that “English” cast is as good and wanted to prove an extra point of using G.H for fractures. The PoP technician has “cast” a wrong turn on my ideals and probably make me eat my own pie with the villagers..hmm ..with my left hand!!:-)

The two pieces of bone know to whose hand they belong, don't they? They know better than to expect some leisure, eh, Senthil?!
