I have now had my right arm in a sling for three weeks, with two weeks to go before I see the consultant and hopefully get the ok to remove it (the sling that is!).

Some things I can manage ok with one hand (dressing, most of showering, some of cleaning and cooking, and others I can bypass (I have been using MS dictate for anything long to be typed).

But buttering toast had me beat until today when I worked it out. Soften butter at 50% power in microwave for 20 seconds, Place toast on chair below waist level. Hold steady with right hand without lifting arm and spread butter with left hand. Jam easy enough to add with spoon. Sorted.

I can even manage to make bread in the machine OK.
