Tingling Sensation…

I’ve been wearing my wrist splint almost constantly since Thursday, and all seems to be going pretty well. My wrist is still slightly bruised at the injection site, and if I completely extend my fingers they scream in pain. Yes, they scream. It is like this sharp, searing pain shooting out the end of my middle finger. I have a similar pain when I take the splint off to get dressed and twist my wrist while putting on a shirt. You don’t realize how often you move your wrist until doing it causes pain.

Overall, this shot doesn’t hurt as bad as the one in my shoulder did. I can function, I can type in limited amounts on the laptop, I can get by. I’m sure the painkillers play a role in that, of course. But when I had the shot in my shoulder last month, I could barely move my right arm at all. I could lift it or move it away from my torso in very small amounts. This time, I can do almost anything I need to do. I even cleaned out part of my closet this morning!

All in all, it is going pretty well. My index finger and middle finger aren’t completely back to normal yet, but it has only been two days. I’m waiting patiently for them to feel better. Then I’ll start knitting some sexy wrist splint covers – this ugly black thing is just … bad. Plus the velcro on the side catches on the baby blanket I’m working on for Jenn. What, you didn’t think I would stop knitting, did you?

OH NO! I feel so bad. Please don’t knit if you’re in pain!!! I would love what you’re making the baby – but not at the expense of you hurting. 🙁 (FYI – I hadn’t seen all the updates here – something is really wonky with your RSS feed and bloglines… they ALL just showed up tonight – and in REVERSE ORDER?!)

Anyway – please take care of yourself!!!

If I didn’t knit, I might go insane. So I’m doing it for me as much as for the baby. (But it gives me warm fuzzies knowing it is for the baby, so that is an added bonus.) It doesn’t hurt to knit, I just do a row or two at a time and then take a break. It is a lot more fun than the purging I’ve been doing around here.

As for the RSS feed … hmmmm. I’ll blame WP for that.
