I have been having some troubles with my arm, carpel tunnel problems. I have been to physical therapy and was fitted for a night time brace. It worked fine for many months and I was pain free. Now the pain is back and not allowing me to sleep for very long at a time. Brace or no brace it is still painful. We thought perhaps I was wood carving too much, but after three days off it is no better…my fingers go numb and the pain goes all the way to my shoulder. So I am off to physical therapy once again. Bummer…the brace is a pain in the butt. I have knocked myself in the head many times with it. ( It is hard plastic and is formed to the shape of my hand and arm so I cannot bend my wrist at all.) I can also remove the brace in the middle of the night without waking up…it might be time to schedule the surgery. Far Guy gives me a daily brace report..it was on. it was off. you were sleeping with your arm in the air again. where was your brace? (Chance had it one night…it was on his back)
I have many projects that I am working on…I am painting some of the Christmas Ornaments, I have 12 more to carve from scratch and about 6 that just need to be sanded. Three more afternoons and I could be done with the carving.
I have two new hobbies/projects that require two good arms. I have ordered supplies for one and the other I have most everything. But that is hobby “stuff”…
I have “stuff” that I have been working on outside that needs to be done before the snow flies. I just don’t have time to baby an arm.
