Hand Update


This pic was taken about an hour ago. I laid my hand on top of the washer, since it was white and would provide good contrast to my bruises. You can see the lumpy swelling and the bruising on the knuckles and upper fingers. I went to the doctor today and she ordered an x-ray, even though she thinks it isn't broken. We are leaving town soon for a beach trip, and she didn't want me to go away and chance any complications without knowing what happened, if anything.



The doc called it a contusion, and told me to keep icing it and then wrap it in an ace bandage. Do you know how hard it is to type with an ace bandage wrapped around your hand?

BUT STILL, somehow you managed Judy! You are such a dedicated blogger! Have fun on your trip and I do hope that your hand starts to feel better for you.

:) Take care.

Darling Judy I am so sorry you have had another accident and hope your natural resilience will result in healing with no after effects - but Judy listen to someone who learns the hard way. I think the message is you need to slow down a little. Forgive me if you think I am being impertinent. I'm glad you have a holiday to look forward to and all my best wishes for a hand as good as new.xoxox

Yes. :P

Hope your vacation goes great in spite of your hand.

Oh Judy, Judy, Judy - that bruise looks just awful. Hope it's better today.

Are you a lefty or righty? From the photo looks like you are a righty.

Mr. Kenja should be pitching in with the dishs if he is your right hand man!

I'm so sorry that you are in pain and hope that all will be well soon. I hate it when I hurt myself, because it takes so much longer for me to heal than it did when I was younger.

Good lord, Judy. That looks so painful! I hope it feel better soon!

Well, it looks like you banged yourself up as badly as I did! Is there a conspiracy?
