Oddly enough I don't have all that much pain now. That may just be the hydrocodone though... :) Luckily I don't type with my toes, so I'm able to continue with modeling and forum diving! :biggrin:

I wear slippers or house shoes now around the house.

My regular podiatrist is going to give me a well-deserved dressing down for not wearing the orthopedic shoes he prescribed for me. He'll probably say "don't take off those shoes until you are going to bed and in the bedroom!" These shoes have a very hard toe section, almost as hard as steel toed construction worker's boots!

Thanks! I needed a good laugh right now. I'm going to recommend that you be given the (new) position of "Forum Jester"... :laugh:

Still, as I learned, that accident would only have happened to you once....  Lesson learned.  Reduce tension on rudder pedals! Heal fast!  And remember next time you are going to have a blood loss mishap to back off the aspirin therapy a few days in advance!

Thanks for the Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D minor.  Very beautiful rendition, especially for someone with two left hands and a stubbed pinky toe!:happy:  Bet you still play just as well🍺

Thanks for the compliments. You must have gotten the link from SOH then. Here it is for anyone else who may be interested:

If you like Bach, here is me playing the Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538
Warning: very loud, so lower your volume.

After the accident with the right hand, it was in fact an episode of "Mash" that gave me the encouragement to pick up practice again. There was a soldier who'd lost his entire right arm.  Dr. Charles Emerson Winchester III, upon learning that he had been a concert pianist, encouraged him to retrain his left hand to be dominant, by having his sister Honoria send him some sheet music that had been scored for the left hand alone.

When I realized that this episode was based on a true event, I thought to myself that if this young man could retrain his hand, there was no rational reason to suppose that I couldn't do the same! Over the years though, as my right hand began to recover through continued therapy, I have been able to retrain my right hand to be dominant once more.

Until my left pinkie is healed up though, I cannot wear my left organ shoe, so I'm limited in use of the pedalboard during my daily practice... :tongue:

Here is today's only living one-handed concert pianist playing an arrangement by Godowski: Etude Op.25 no.12 'Ocean' Chopin

Hoping your pinky is back to using its previous ninja-like motor skills for your toe brake rudder work soon. Like others here been there almost done that....45 degrees not 90...thats something you DON'T want to see....hope your toe care is better than my infinitely stupid care...have on multiple occasions broken toes...hobbled around for days then preceded to whack them out of joint again before they healed on the SAME piece of furniture even AFTER it was moved to a safer place...nylon socks also send shivers up my spine,,

Ouch! Well, since I have to wear a "shoe" that is designed to protect one who's injured a toe, I don't have any problems with the rudder pedals and toe brakes. I just flew a circuit in one of my two latest project assignments without any problems at all!

Unfortunately, the rubber sole is not suitable for using the pedal board of an organ. My organist shoes have smooth leather soles, which aren't suitable for safe walking!
