I've been waking with wrist pain and swollen fingers to some degree for a month or so. I didn't think much of it as my feet hurt every morning and have for years. Then yesterday the wrist pain was bad and you could see how swollen it is. Looks like a cotton ball is stuffed under the skin on the left side of my left hand. I'm in such a crafting mode this summer it was impossible to sit and do nothing! So I limited movements and didn't pick up anything heavy or breakable. By 8:30pm I couldn't stand it and we went to the store for a brace. $22 each! Yikes, finally found a store brand for half. I guess it works OK, but I have small hands compared to the rest of me:-) so it's a bit loose on the thumb. I slept with it on and it didn't hurt as much this morning. This comes just 5 days before some old friends of my hubbys are coming to visit. They only let us know this week. He swore he'd help get the two junk rooms ready for guests. Plus we already had one day next week set aside to rent a uhaul and pick up some furniture from mom as she's moving and is giving us stuff. Now he's booked work today,Saturday and Sunday! Leaving not one day to work at home before four people show up on Tuesday. But he tells me to sit and rest he'll do everything! I guess he has special powers or something. Also where is he hiding the stuff we're getting from Mom? I told him he better tell them to get a hotel, it's not happening here! I'm not looking forward to the next week at all!
