Coming up.......................

Even though I haven't been posting on a regular basis I wanted to let anyone who cares know that it is going to probably be a while before I post again. I am having carpal tunnel surgery on both of my wrists this coming Thursday. I am being told that the recovery time will be a few weeks. I have no idea if I will be able to type during that recovery time or if by typing it will make the recovery process longer. I'll just have to play that one by ear.

I have had this problem for 4-5 years and have been sleeping every single night with wrist braces on both arms for longer than I care to remember. The last time I saw my primary doctor he suggested that we go ahead and get it fixed. I didn't think twice about it. I am so tired of the numbing and tingling in my fingers, not to mention the constant pain in my hands. It doesn't help that my job includes typing....lots of typing. I mentioned this in a post a couple of weeks ago.

I have a feeling that Joe and I are gonna get 'really close' in the next few weeks since I will not have the use of both hands for at least a few days. Oh my.......I will be so happy when this is behind me. But it is something that has to be done so I have decided to dig my heels in and get it done.

Until then my friends......behave yourselves!

Oh boy! I got CT in both my wrists and ankles when I was pregnant 10 years ago. They said it would go away once I gave birth. The liars. I still have it faintly in my wrists but not bad enough for the splints anymore. It was bad to the point of debilitating when I was pregnant. It's coming back again (unsurprisingly) with this pregnancy. I had an appointment with my neurologist to discuss my options before I even got pregnant but basically you don't really have any. I suspect I'll be back in the wrist splints again inna few months. It'll be worth it, I just hate it is all.

I really hope it works for you, the pain sucks! Good luck!!!!
