I was gone for awhile, didn't realize how long. As far as the long days on the Pacific, they were really nice. Funny, one day the ship actually stalled - we were dead in the water for about 4/5 hours. It was wonderful - the weather was perfect. I guess that's why no one paniced about it.
As for my wrist, it is now over 6 months and the bone is healed but the damage to nerves and tendons is bad making my wrist rather useless
