In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Carpal Tunnel Release 2

Again, I'm typing with one hand. I had the release surgery on my left hand this morning. So far, so good, but my entire hand is still without any feeling, due to the medication. I'll know the initial result tonight, when I hope I'm able to complete a night of sleep, without waking numerous times by pain and numbness. I'm looking forward to that; I've had enough.

  2. Thanks.

    Even if all feeling in my fingers doesn't return, it's much better than having my sleep interrupted numerous times during the night.

  3. You're through the worst of it now, so hopefully you'll be up and running like new real soon. Hang in there ...

    1. Thank you. My right hand is still not 100%, but I get by. I'd have waited longer, but sleep problems were getting worse with the left hand.

    2. Long-term carpal tunnel syndrome only becomes worse if you had of waited too long risking permanent damage to the median nerve ... so you made the right decision. Of course you likely know all this. I started my career in the OR, so I know a little something about these situations.Take care.

  4. *note to Whisper Mist - my other buddy* Jess has many talents, but running on his hands isn't one of them.

    Honestly Jess, you've got to stop all that texting and playing with the remote. I need foot surgery to such a point I yelp when I'm hobbling from room to room, so I'm hoping for good results for you. I'm being a yelping coward.

  6. Jess, I don't know how your comment section got messed up. I'll take the blame this time. I'd say I'm praying for you, but homey don't go in that direction, so I CAN say in all honesty that you're my bud, and as my bud, I only want the BEST for you. Let us know how you feel in the morning.

    1. Google has electrical spasms every now and then. I't's like reflux, except it involves electrons and circuit boards.

      Yesterday, my hand felt like a balloon on the end of my arm. Today, it feels like someone stabbed me in the hand with a butcher knife.

    2. Yesterday your hand was numb. Remember how fat your lip felt the last time you had Novocaine? Today the nerves are waking up and they HAVE been stabbed, and cut, and pulled. Surgery is not gentle.

  7. You haven't updated. I assume you're not doing as well as expected? Let someone know.

    1. The left hand is doing better than the right. The strength, without much pain, returned faster.

      Neither hand is 100%, but considering it can take months for complete healing, I'm happy with the results.

      Thanks for caring.
