Been sick

Sorry for not updating. Just found out that I have tendinitis and carpal tunnel in my right arm, which is the kiss of death for a waitress. So I have been pretty busy running to doctors and pharmacies etc. I have a not to have off til Friday, which although I cannot afford it, in the long run it will be more cost effective to let my tendon get some rest. The arm that is afflicted ironically is my "tray hand"..the one that I carry the big trays with. The doctor said that after 21 years of waitressing my tendon is telling me it needs a break.. Getting some more testing in regard to the carpal tunnel. So I shall have plenty of time to blog and catch up on all of your blogs out there since I have a few extra days off..God Bless and Peace!

I had both wrists operated on and was off work a total of 90 days. If the surgeon is good, real good he could use a laser and have you back to work in 5 days. Ice the wrists and warm them slowly after wards. Try not to sleep on the affected arm, wrap a towel or something on it to attempt to keep it straight while sleeping at both the elbow and the wrist (not tightly just a bit snug.

Never thought about how crazy it would be not to have full use of my right arm. Thanks for the advice. It hurts to even type.

SB- Thanks dearie. I will probably sleep....lol..
