Injured Thanksgiving

While everyone else was spending thanksgiving morning cooking and baking I was in the ER.

On Monday my hand started hurting, and everyday it got worse. The ER doc says it’s either a nerve or a split ligament. I also have a bone chip from what he says is an old injury. I’m thinking drunken cartwheels on a balance beam a few months ago was a bad idea.

The pain reached an all time high around 6:00pm thanksgiving night right before the family sat down to dinner. I sat on the sofa and cried. My brother who has the emotional range of a tree sat next to me and rubbed my arm and let me lean on him. I am grateful for that. My plans of movie watching and shopping were shattered and the night ended all too soon. Maybe next year things will be different.

The ER doc wanted me to see a specialist tomorrow but I’m stuck in Chicago on business until Thursday night.

BTW one handed blogging is hard.
