I have an arm. It may hurt like the devil but it is a complete arm. I have appointments with two different surgeons but not for two or three weeks.
I wrap my entire brace and arm in a fluffy blanket so it stays toasty warm at night and avoids any facial injuries by said brace flopping about in the nightime. I concocted a daytime brace with an elastic stocking and vet wrap…it helps with the pain.
Far Guy is my right arm. He can scrub floors, scrubbing used to be my thing to do ..now it is his.
Thank goodness I am somewhat ambidextrous. I am not good at writing with either hand right now. I will need more practice. I can type (hunt and peck)! I can play cards totally left handed but someone else has to shuffle cards for me (those years dealing Black Jack have come in handy who woulda thunk it?) I can wash dishes with one hand. I can pet the dog, I can dust…and I can cook as long as the pots and pans are not too heavy and have to be moved... my grip is non existent.
Carpal Tunnel sucks but I am trying to make the best of it. I will be glad to get this common aging problem behind me.
My dreams are equally awesome and
somewhat strange really weird, it must be from all the Ecotrin and Ibuprofin that I have been consuming.
This is the last I will mention it, I will let you know all about the surgery when it is over and done with.
