Hubby has completed all his testing. We have a diagnosis now. It is nice to finally know what is going on with him. It is nothing fatal, but if left unattended could have caused severe medical issues at some point. Now that we know what it is, we can go on with life and do what is necessary for him to remain healthy for years to come! PTL!
Since we have been home from the Doctor's office, I have been semi cleaning up 'stuff'. Seems everything gets dumped either on the kitchen table or the end of the kitchen counter top. It drives me crazy. Everything does have a place in our home. Since there are only 2 of us living here, it isn't hard to point fingers at the offending culprit. I admit, I am as much at fault as is hubby.
There just might be another puzzle getting ready to be laid out. Since my hand is still acting up, knitting/crocheting is not my friend right now. Doing a puzzle will keep me busy. I also have done a bit of sewing this week. I will show off my sewing finishes on Sunday....so stayed tuned.
I called my Orthopedic guy and am going in for an injection next week. He offered this to me a few weeks ago and I turned it down thinking the brace would take care of things. NOPE! I am so D.O.N.E. with the tingling and numbness in my thumb and first 2 fingers. It even hurts my hand to wash my hair! He said it starts working in a few days and if it doesn't, then we know surgery is the only answer. I am still wearing the brace to bed and that has really messed up my sleeping. Hitting ones self with a hard brace in the middle of the night, has a tendency to bring a person fully awake. Yup, it happens at least once a night.
So now you are all up to date on everything. So:
until next time................happy crafting!!!!!
Hope the injection works for you.ReplyDelete
Glad to read that you DH will be okay. This getting older thing is pretty much for the birds, but I suppose it is better than the alternative.
I have learned to be a neat person and avoid visual surface clutter because my husband is legally blind and heading toward total blindness rapidly. Thing have to be where he can expect them to be since he cannot see. But closets and drawers can get a bit full and disorganized. I still struggle with that. Glad your husband's issues can be managed. So many conditions at our age (like my husband's vision) can't be helped by any means.ReplyDelete
