Who starts a blog when they are battling tendonitis and tennis elbow in both arms anyway? Typing is what causes me the most pain fastest, except for setting up my dad's IV antibiotic. Hopefully there's only about ten days of that left. We're in week three now and on day eight I suddenly had intense pain at the base of my thumb several hours after twanging the bubbles out of the tubing. Until then I was doing pretty well.
And then six days later I tripped over my dog and fell onto my left wrist, the one that was worse off to start with. Also fell onto my knees, which didn't even seem to notice - fortunately. Surprisingly I did not actually impact my dog. Am still a bit puzzled by it. She knew I was falling on her and looked up at me with a wide-eyed 'you're going to squash me' deer in headlights sort of expression. In a reflex that's kind of like a driver extending their arm in front of a passenger when stopping suddenly I slid my right arm under her chest. I still have no idea why that happened. Certainly wasn't planning on it and I didn't want to pin her in place to squash her. I don't know if that makes it more like tackling her or what. Of course it happened in an instant; I just found myself on the floor hugging her with my right arm. I suppose the distinction is that she was not supporting my weight at all. I have a feeling if I'd just fell on both wrists the left one wouldn't have taken quite as much of a beating, lol.
