I have a delay in doing handwork or doing much of anything. My wrist was hurting, so today I went to the orthopedist and saw the hand guy. This is how I'm working now.
I ended up with a diagnosis of tendinitis, along with a shot of cortisone and a different brace. The hand doc also told me I have an anatomical anomaly, because it didn't hurt when he had me tuck my right thumb down into my wrist and squeeze. I guess for tendinitis there, tucking your thumb in hurts most folks. Not me.
Dr Hand was interested in my tatting, since I listed it as a hobby. He had me demonstrate, and had me slow down so he could see how to make a ring.
Unfortunately, I can't do much with this brace, since it encloses my thumb. It's hard to drive, too. So I'm going back to reading. No tatting for a few days. And ibuprofen is my friend right now.
The bad kitten sleeps a lot, and he's mighty cute then. When he gets up on me, he purrs loud like a motorboat. Then he bites me.
