On top of it all...

It appears I have tendinitis in my thumb. The proper name is deQuervain's tendinitis. It is fairly common in new mothers. Dr. Bob says the worst case of this he has seen was a young lady who was a pharmacy technicion by day and a bassist in a rock band by night. Between opening and closing bottles and jars and picking the bass she messed up both thumbs.

I have a splint and an ice pack and the 4 weeks of not being alowed to lift should go a good distance in clearing it up.

Otherwise I seem to be healing well. I still tend to overdo just a bit, but every day I'm feeling a little better.
