He/She started the thread and hasn't been heard from since.
Recent comments from RG2, mainly flowery as you would expect. But I'm sure members here will enjoy reading.

I had a spiral fracture of my right middle finger about 11 years ago -- found some &$%@! in my car one night after clubbing and fought with him (I figured that if he didn't immediately shoot me, I was ok; besides, he just wanted to flee). I grabbed him and he twisted, thus the spiral fracture. Surgery involved pins and such though I don't recall the deets except the doc had to tack a tendon down. Anyway, I was in a soft splint for about a month or so and man did that finger stink when it came off. Anyway, rehab was a be-yotch. When you don't move a joint for that long, the muscles ossify. I literally had only a few degrees of bend in my knuckle. Oh, originally, my finger, from the knuckle, was bent 90 degrees right. To this day, when I let my hand slacken, there's still about 15 degrees of bend. Anyway, rehab consisted of dipping my hand in hot wax for a few minutes, then all kinds of bending exercises. You think it's simple, but your muscles are useless from inactivity and you have to really struggle to bend the finger. 3 months of 2x/week rehab plus daily exercises on my own. Thankfully I was insured. Can't play guitar as well as I used to (pick holding). It gave me a huge new perspective on what athletes go through when they are injured. Oh, and that bone is slightly noticeably larger than its counterpart due to bone growth caused by recovering from the injury. Get well RGIII -- but do it properly. We want you to grow old winning SBs in D.C.
