Well, my confidence in the human skeleton is sky high these days. My surgeon removed the metal fixtures he applied after last year’s fall in the mountains, and the shattered elbow feels as good as new already. I just had to make a photo of the metal pieces as well, simply because I’m quite amazed how much stuff fits into one joint, and how well things can grow back together. A nice touch: When I opened my eyes after anesthesia, the first thing I saw right in front of me where the nicely steamed metal pieces, *all* of them, sealed in a plastic bag. There was a risk that the nails would not come out in one piece, but they did. And the cut is modest compared to last year. As I said earlier: If my work is remotely as good as that of my surgeon, I will always be alright.
