Last Friday I checked into Avista Hospital where Dr. James Reid surgically repaired the torn UCL in my thumb. The operation went well, and it sounds like Dr. Reid repairs quite a few of these 'Skier's Thumbs' in Colorado.
I'll be sporting this soft cast until next Wednesday when I have my first post-op visit. The plan is to remove my stitches and put me in a waterproof cast that can be molded to the shape of my handlebars! Assuming the state of my concussion allows, I should be able to get back on the bike for some light exercise sometime after that.
I can't thank everybody enough for the outpouring of love and well wishes through another set-back. As you can imagine, this is not easy for me to deal with and I would love nothing more than to have a full year without any issues.
