So I went in to see the doctor today - my hope was to get a splint, not a cast, and that is what happened! Power of positive thinking! (HA - to all you that snickered at me)
Here are a few photos, 2 X-Rays and one of the splint, you can see the T Plate and screws pretty well in the X - Rays. (Taken with Cell phone, so they are not great quality, and yes, my thumb really hooks out like that)

Honestly, I feel like now the real challenge begins. I need to be able to make a fist by the time I leave for Korea, and I am no where near that right now, the Physical Therapist gave me some exercises and said if I am good about doing them I should see improvement in the next week or so...lets hope so...all I know, is the "exercises" hurt more then getting it broken.
After a 3 week lay off - I am headed into the gym to start working on forms right now...lets see how much I lost.
I will do my best to get a good Taekwondo post up here soon, I know, my own personal sob story is not nearly as interesting as Taekwondo drills.
