Monday...me and my thumb....
Monday, June 01, 2009
I had a fun filled weekend. We had a birthday party for Jordan. We had company over all weekend. I was so tired that I actually had to call in this morning so I could get more rest. I actually fell asleep 2x this morning while drying my hair with the blow dryer. Well, I went back to bed and got a few more zzzz's in.
My hand....about 3 weeks ago, I noticed that my right thumb was extremely sore. I didn't pay much mind to it. Early on last week, I noticed that the joint at the base of the thumb is really swollen. I have been icing it andtaking breaks from typing. That seems to help the pain, but the swelling is still there. When I wake in the morning, it is throbbing and burning so bad. Despite my pain on Saturday morning, I spent 3 hours filling 500 water ballons with my DH for the birthday party.(The things we do for our children.) I finally broke down and made an appointment to see an orthopedic doctor for Wednesday. Hopefully I can get some relief.
