How I spent my afternoon...........



When I awoke this morning, I felt fine. By the time 10:00 AM rolled around, I was starting to feel really crummy. I had been to the doctor yesterday to have my hand checked because it had been hurting for about two weeks and he x-rayed it and nothing was broke. Upon further exam, he came to the conclusion that I had partially torn the tendon that controls my thumb. He instructed me to give it complete rest for two more weeks, take ibuprofen and have it rechecked. He said if it isn't better in 2 weeks he would suggest I see a hand surgeon. He can suggest all he wants.........I've decided that unless it gets a lot worse, I can live with it. No surgeons for me, thank you very much!

So unless I picked something up while in the doctors waiting room yesterday, I think a cold is trying to catch me. Headache, stuffy/runny nose, chills, etc. And tired, I was extremely tired. I laid down after Bumpa left for work at 1:30 PM on the above pictured sofa and woke there at 5:50 PM. I do feel more rested and wonder if I will have trouble falling asleep tonight! Needless to say, I accomplished NOTHING today! But, tomorrow is a new day and I'm sure I will catch up with all I neglected today.

Hey you.. Sorry to hear your suffering with a torn tendon, that can't feel to good. Surgery might not be as bad as you think. Don't suffer to much before seeing a surgeon.

Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry I've been so absent as of late. I hope that you feel better soon. Seems like the bug has been going around a lot here, too.
