I need to work on dexterity/fine motor skills in my non-dominant hand.

I have herniated discs in my neck that have resulted in some nerve issues in my left arm, with my hand as the latest victim. Specifically the last three fingers on my left hand have not been 100% lately. [more inside]

Bigger surgery or smaller?

Followup to this and this: I need surgery on my elbow to move the ulnar nerve, which is getting trapped by heterotopic ossification (extra bone inside the elbow arising from an old fracture.)

Activities for active guy to do while recovering from hand surgery?

My brother (in-law) is having surgery tomorrow on his hands to help with his Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. He's a roofer, a general contractor and also a rock-climber, so you can imagine how not having the use of his hands for up to six weeks is going to drive him crazy. They live nowhere near me, but I'd like to present him with a list of things that he could do while bed-ridden and beyond. Points for originality, and thanks.
