Just returned from the Doctor.
In a freak event, simply pulling a door open, I snapped a tendon band for the ring finger of my right hand. I have almost no grip (cannot even remove a jar lid), swelling, pain and lovely shades of blue and purple.
A couple weeks of meds and “no impact” on my hand. If that does not help we will do steriod shots to the effected area, in the palm of my hand. The Doc tells me that is as painful as it sounds.
I am wearing a brace to discourage people from trying to shake hands and remind me not to do anything stupid to cause worse injury.
At least I don’t have any big projects started that will be staring me in the face. Maybe I can clean and organize the shop… or start electrocuting some of these rusty tools… or, or…
OR, I could spend my “shop time” lurking around here enjoying the hobby vicariously through your projects.
Thanks for letting my whine. Time for me to pull my “big boy britches” on and get back to the job that pays the bills.
