How could I forget? Almost a year ago, I underwent surgery for trigger thumb - the resulting malady from the previous year's carpal tunnel surgery. They call me a "Frequent Flyer" at the surgicenter where I go. And I'll be there again in June for the second cataract surgery! Then.....I should be done....barring the development of another trigger finger!

You can tell by the lovely packaging that the same doctor wrapped me up. I love this doctor! He also gave me a shot in the left elbow while I was "out" so that the tendonitis there would not worsen as I struggle to use my left hand in the weeks ahead. But as you can see, I am already typing, have taken a shower (wrapped in Saran Wrap and double newspaper baggies). The hair is another story!
I'm taking a reprieve from knitting and crocheting for at least a week; tennis for 4 - 6 weeks, so I will manage to keep myself busy with other things - like organizing my studio (yet again!), clearing out my closet (yet again!), reading, and planning for a variety of things. Not so bad! REALLY!!!
I remind myself EVERY day, many times each day, that this is nothing more than NUISANCE FACTOR, and that in light of several friends struggling with life-threatening or life-changing illnesses and conditions, I am grateful to deal with this.
I'll keep you posted!
