Out of Service

I am of the plenty, I think, who have this nasty business called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  I have struggled with it for years, and it is just getting worse.  It flared up again, almost overnight, causing me not to sleep, and not able to work on any of my many projects, and no yard work.

So, off to the doctor I go to get the cortisone injections.  Supposedly, one can only get them a couple of time a year, and I am on my third in the last 12 months.  That just means I will be getting the surgery done sometime after the first of the year.  Nobody likes to have a surgery, but I will be glad to have this done, so I don't have to worry about the "flare-ups" any more!

Ooooo! So sorry about that.
I had it back in the 70's--it stemmed from my hand quilting and from various serious food allergies that I didn't recognize at the time. It healed on it's own, but I well remember the pain, and I'm very sorry that your dealing with it.
