It's difficult to describe, I will edit this post with a link to the video if I can find it.

EDIT: Here's a picture of the movement I'm thinking of. It would probably scrape your arms up a bit, though--maybe you could do it in a long-sleeved shirt.
Emily,

Any sort of movement with that hand is pretty much out of the question at this point. I'm in a cast that encompasses my thumb and goes all the way up to my shoulder
At this point, it's looking a lot like one armed work, in addition to the incredible amount of squatting I'm going to be doing.
