Saw the doc at 1245 He said the bone was indeed a crush fracture, and I had lost some length.  They could, and should, do surgery. When? Does tomorrow work for me? Why yes it does.

I would suggest a nice lap desk.  You can put inlays in the top, provide storage for paper, address book, and pens.  Make it as nice as you like.
