"Mattore yo... mou sukoshi yakara..."

I went down to the hospital on Monday morning; the nurse cut my cast off, I had another x-ray and the doctor, after glancing at the photos, told me "mou sukoshi," which means: "tough luck, son, come back on the 14th."

The nurse strapped the lower half of my cast back onto my hand with an elasticated bandage and I was promptly denuded of another 3,000 yen.

The good news is I can take the new cast off, so here's a photo of sleeping beauty (not much mobility yet, I'm afraid):

The hand of glory

And I can finally get to work on the necrotic-smelling layer of dead skin which has formed on my hand over the last month.
