Smile Re: Basal Joint surgery

Hi Haydena and Cassie,

Went in this morning at 7:15 and got my shot. He really loaded in the anaesthetic this time-even at 1:00 I can still feel it working. Now hopefully in the next day or so the cortisone will kick in and I will have my hand back again. Its been to the point that my sleeve brushing it was painful and there was pain at night, so some relief-even if it is not complete will be welcome. Only a few days now until I get the cast off, so that will take some pressure off my left hand as well as I move into PT and using it bit by bit. And my cast is perfectly comfortable with a divot out the thumb and one out to let the knuckle of my index finger have more room. It looks like quite a sight!

Have a great weekend!

Linda
