My brother finally sent me a picture of my mother's broken arm. She fell while skating the day after Christmas and ended up having to have surgery about a week later. She described what the result looked like, but I couldn't imagine it. I asked her if she was a Transformer and she replied, "Yep. I'm an antennae." Ha! Anyhow, it makes me queasy just looking at the picture. Ugh. This device is called an External Fixator, or "Ex-Fix."

My mom's robot arm: stronger better faster painful. Poor Bunny, I hope you get better soon!

Damn! That does not look fun! I hope your mom gets better soon. What happened to the good ole days of a white plaster cast?

Inspired by Canada's example, Barack Obama has promised one of those for every American. My own gets installed on the 21st, the day after the inauguration.
