How many colors are in the rainbow?

There are more colors in the rainbow than the human eye can see. More colors than we have names for. If you think there are six or seven colors, that is a product of the culture you live in. There are some cultures that do not distinguish between blue and green.

I only had the cast on for less than a month, but my hand was surprisingly weak after it was removed. The thumb and fingers are also very stiff. The doctor said that is normal, and I should regain the strength and flexibility in a few weeks.
