Hello my friends. I just wanted you to know that I have been absent due to a very sore right arm and elbow. I had this last winter and a cortizone shot fixed me up fast. Well it started acting up in Oct. and I thought I would wait until I got down here which was a mistake. I should have gone to my Dr. at home. With closing the garden, packing, lifting and closing up the house and then doing the same down here it became very sore. I called my DR. here and he was out of town. Well when I got in to see him he did not want to do another shot until he determined there was nothing else going on as the elbow was badly swollen. He sent me for an xray and put me on anti-inflammatory meds for a couple of weeks. Xray showed nothing and anti pills did not do much. 2 weeks later he gave me another cortizone shot but unfortunately it did not do the trick this time. I think I waited too long and it really got bad. Now I am sceduled for an MRI early Dec. to make sure there is nothing else there.
The worse part of this is I am right handed and can do no hand stitching, crocheting, anything repetitious hurts the elbow. I did find that I can sew a bit on the machine as it doesn't seem to bother the arm. My hands do most of the work. I came up with a little idea today of something I can make.
Tomorrow I will take some pics and see what you think.
