Well, Goodbye Fall Softball

(THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF MY HAND)

So, I have now gone to the doctor to have him look at my hand. Guess what? I have a hairline fracture in my fourth (ring) metacarpal bone in my hand. It is a weird bone to have a fracture in because it is right in the middle of my hand. The doctor told me that there wasn’t much we can do about it, except wait. However, he told me that it could very easily turn in a break (like shown above) or the bone could just shatter if I continued to play softball, specifically hit softballs with a bat. If this were to happen it would almost certainly mean surgery on my right hand. This is not an appealing option to me, so I will be forfeiting most of my fall softball season, until I get the free and clear from my doctor. Hopefully in 4-6 weeks. So, I am on the DL. Suck!
