No Quilting for Me!!
Well I won't be operating the longarm for 72 hours per the doctor's orders. Went to a hand specialist today and this is what my left thumb currently looks like. It has some really long medical name but it is also called trigger finger.
I had two choices to try a steroid injection or have surgery. Since surgery couldn't happen for 6 to 8 weeks and I was tired of hurting I elected to try the injection.
I am a huge needle chicken but boy did this hurt. I need to wear this brace today and then after that every night for six weeks, what fun. Hopefully this will fix me right up and I won't have to have surgery.
I guess today I am going to do some reading and maybe see what is on Lifetime and just lay around. I am hoping tomorrow the initial hurt from the injection will be gone and I can do a little light sewing.
Already told the hubby that I won't be grocery shopping today or probably cooking tonight.
