One of the worst things to befall a decorator has happened to me. I fell on some ice last weekend and broke my right wrist! In a cast for 8 weeks then therapy likely...I've had to cancel many orders! Could have been wose, so I am thankful its only my wrist.

Wow, that so sucks! And the problem with being self-employed is that most of us don't have short-term disability insurance to give us any income replacement in the meantime. I hope it heals up well and you're back up and running soon.

Oh no! I hope it heals fast!

When I broke my leg, they told me not to drink diet coke, smoke or take ibuprofen, because they said all three will slow healing.

Also, don't be surprised if your arm is real hairy when the cast comes off icon_biggrin.gif

I'm so sorry to hear your news. You are right - it is the worst thing to happen to a decorator --- I hope you heal quickly - and maybe you will pick up some talents with your left hand you didn't know you had! Good luck.

Oh no! Drink lots of milk, that helps.

Like suzycakes said, maybe you'll become ambidextrous. Hope you heal quickly and fully.

You must have more snow in Pikeville than we did in central KY.

Jeff I am so sorry to hear about your wrist. I busted mine about 4 years ago (my right) and geesh the things you don't realize that hard to do with your non dominant hand! Took me about a year to recover completely (had 7 screws and metal plate) but with time, and I hope your recovery is much shorter I am pretty much back to normal. Just a little weaker with my grip but you probably have a much stronger grip to begin with. I wish you speedy recovery!

Hope your wrist heal fast, do you have any kids old enough to help out,or husband or sister..... don't know what I'd do with out my family. I got my right arm caught in a machine at work the week of a big wedding, my husband stepped right up and helped me do those cakes.

sorry to hear about your accident. Yes you are right it could always be worse. But a broken wrist is pretty bad especially for a cake decorator.

hope you have a speedy recovery.
