Got The Splint Removed!

Although my hand is still bloated and swollen, and my second metacarpal is still fractured, the doc removed the splint. It looks pretty gross and I plan to add a picture of it later.

I have two splint pics below that were taken by friends with high tech pda cameraphones:

This picture was taken with a blackberry of some kind. It was August 2, 2007 and I was in Spingfield Park in Queens to see Roy Ayers. When I had the cast on, I was supposed to keep my arm elevated. So I went to a lot of concerts, aoided auctions (for the most part) and kept a ready supply of questions. "You in the back! You've had your hand up for the whole presentation. Do you have a question?"
"Yes, I do. I'd like to ask the chairman..."

This picture was taken with an iPhone on August 5, 2007. I was bopping around the city with some friends who used to live in New York. I had just recieved a phone call from my nephew, who was experiencing culture shock upon his return to Memphis. He asked where I was. I said, "Houston Street."
"So, you're like, in SoHo?"
"Actually, I'm in the middle of Houston Street. Neither SoHo or NoHo. I guess I'm just in Ho."
A meaningless milestone: this is the first picture ever taken of me with an iPhone.
