I somehow managed to hurt my right thumb this week. It came out of the blue – I don’t remember banging it on anything or bending it the wrong way. After three days of aching and swelling, I went to the doctor today. And this is what I left with. Lovely, no? She diagnosed it as a case of tendonitis and advised 10-14 days of rest in this nice splint. Fun. I also need to get an x-ray to rule out any fractures, although we both doubt an x-ray will show anything.
It just took me 30 minutes to pull this post together. I now have a much greater appreciation for my opposable thumb.
