Hand buddy?

    Default Hand buddy?

    My mom has a pinky finger that has a mind of its own. She went to her RD
    who bounced her to a hand surgeon that said he *might* be able to fix it
    surgically (read: cha-ching), but maybe not. In the meantime, he gave her
    these little velcro straps that holds her pinky to her ring finger. Problem
    solved. Ok, not so much. She has worn off all the velcro and wants new ones.
    But she doesn't want to have to pay for a visit to the hand surgeon again.
    Does anyone know where to buy these things? Supposedly they are called "hand
    buddies." They're really soft material, and don't scratch. I haven't
    found such material in a fabric store. But that is plan "B" in case someone
    has other suggestions. Thanks, y'all.

    If you can remain calm, you just don't have all the facts.

    A hospital/sickroom supply store should have what you are looking for.

    On a refill of something like that, you should be able to call the
    surgeon's office and they can tell you where to get them. They may even
    say to come by and pick some up. I've had that happen - no office visit
    bill. Good luck.
