After years and well, actually decades, of constant hand motion, my hands are taking their revenge. They want to stop moving, get repaired and heal. Today I’m having carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand to get the process started. The doctor said I will be able to move my fingertips but cautioned me to not over-use my hands to the point of making the pain return.
So, I’ll heed his warning and take life slow for a few weeks. I don’t want to get to the point where I can’t knit or type or do any of my other favorite hand activities. As it is now, even holding a book hurts. For the next few weeks I’ll be doing all my reading via audiobooks. I’ll have to figure out a way to make notes so I can tell you about them when I get back.
In the meantime I’ll read your blog posts and try to keep up on what’s happening with you. I just won’t be able to leave a comment. As soon as I get the okay, I’ll be back with a few posts. And today, I’ll happily accept a few prayers for my right wrist and the doctor’s steady hand.
