So, we have power and internet and cable at both houses. Well, we don’t have cable at Nokomis but then we never did so that wasn’t a loss. What we don’t have are three and a half of our former trees and a bazillion tiny limbs and palm fronds.
Anywho, this will be a really short post because apparently my body is not meant to do the things it used to do when I was, ahem, younger.
I am broken.
After 7 days of constantly lifting 100+ pound logs from cut trees I was not able to sleep for the past two nights. I had a very severe pain in my right arm that radiated down to my fingers. So, early this morning MacGyver insisted I go to the urgent care.
My hand is badly swollen and I can’t grip anything. Fortunately it is not broken or fractured but I have some nerve pain and very bad inflammation and the doctor noticed some bone spurs on the xray as well as a little arthritis. He also mentioned some other underlying issues involving my spine and and asked me to follow up with my regular physician.
And then he prescribed some pain medication and told me above all, do not use that hand for at least 5 days, so here I am, typing out a blog post.
How was your weekend? Your week? I can’t type so you better fill me in on your weekend.
