Saturdays Off?

Observant readers might have noticed I’ve taken the last couple of Saturdays off.  This is not a new tradition for me. At least, that’s not the plan.

is, I hurt my hand a few weeks ago.  My right hand (and yeah, I’m right handed).  I’m still waiting for the doctors appt I made the day it happened.  The earliest appt they could give me was weeks away.

I have no idea what the problem is, but it’s much worse when I use it all day long, without break (my norm). Rest helps, as does ice.

And so I’m trying to take Saturdays off, for the most part.  At least until I figure out what’s going on. Because, honestly, it hurts like hell sometimes. And I kinda need my hand to not hurt like hell.

I thought it was time I mentioned it here, as my plan A (it magically getting better) never came to pass.  On to plan B (be honest about the situation and it up).

ps There are some things about getting older that really suck.

    Honey, you’ve only just begun to experience ‘some things about getting older’. Would you like us to clue you in, or would you rather be surprised? The good news is, this problem with your hand will (hopefully) be something you barely remeber in 5-10 years as so many other ‘things’ start to happen to your body. I have taken the stance of detached fascination with all of the changes in my body in the past few years. I also keep thinking of the phrases that I’ve heard such as, “If I’d know I was going to live this long, I would’ve taken better care of myself”. (Dean Martin) And, “It’s a great life if you don’t weaken”. (My best friend’s grandmother)Having a job where my arms, hands and back are integral, I can relate to your situation. I hope you can find out what’s wrong and get it healed quickly.

    we miss you.

  3. Wishing you the best on your recovery. It shouldn’t take weeks to get an appointment – it seems ridiculous to have to wait that long. Health care – don’t get me started! Best wishes!

    sounds like carpal tunnel or something like that from overuse on keyboard.
    rest is best thing.
