Just got back from the ortho doctor and he said the bone is healling nicely and my arm is offically out of the sling. I only have to wear the fracture cast while at work. It is as stiff as a board, the doc gave me excersises to do and I have to go to pyshical therapy. Looks like I head back to work on Thursday. Hopefully before to long I'll be pickin once more.

Good news John. Glad to hear it. What do you need to do to be okay to pick?

Tony, The doc said I need to start exercising my arm and physical therapy to gain the full motion of my arm. Pick up the banjo when I got home and was only able to reach half way up the neck.

So it looks like you'll just have to work on your up the neck licks ;)
Just kidding... good luck with that. Hopefully that will give you some incentive to really take your PT seriously and get that arm working
