My back pain is almost gone. I think I got lucky and didn’t do any permanent damage. I almost cancelled my appointment with my spine specialist but I think it might be good to see him anyway for a professional opinion and checkup.
My ribs still hurt on my right side. I think I bruised them pretty good on the inside or something. They said they weren’t broken. I Googled rib bruise and all the symptoms match. I should have another two weeks of slowly lessening pain to look forward to. It’s not too bad.
My left wrist seems to have taken the majority of the damage. The break is almost invisible in the X-ray. You would really have to know what to look for to find it. It still hurts when I turn it certain ways but I can type again now. I’m supposed to be wearing a splint but it interferes with my work and I don’t feel that I really need it anymore. I’m just being extra careful with what I use it for. No lifting or prying or almost anything other than typing and extremely light duty. Good thing I’m right-handed.
I’m more frustrated that I am not getting finished with my siding project. I hate just looking at it being half done and I can’t do anything about it. A wise man said, “Patience, you must have.” Fortunately I am a master of patience. Call me by my Native American name: “One Who Waits.”
At least I’m getting a lot of important TV watching done. I’ve been watching all the first episodes of the new Doctor Who Series from 2005.
I’m also learning how to relax. Can’t say I’m all there yet but not being able to jump up and do great things kind of gives you time to rest. I’ve been needing a lesson in relaxation anyway. I better get serious about it before I get all healed up because it might pass me by.
