I nearly didn’t write this evening and it’s a lot later then I’d usually post. I’ve currently got 7 minutes to post before midnight! I’ve had an extremely busy day and struggled to find a moment to work till now. Since I haven’t ever missed a Friday (as far as I’m aware) I couldn’t accommodate the idea of missing one.
My thumb’s doing pretty well – still a bit numb and I get weird pins and needles down the side sometimes. Hopefully this will subside. I’ve been given the all-clear by my consultant and physio and been advised that I’ll have about 80% function in my hand now. It’s sore sometimes (apparently due to the trauma) but I just need it to work for the essentials – driving, working, eating, cooking. I know I can’t do certain things but I have to accept that and appreciate the things I can do. It does make me sad but I have to try not to think about it, keep busy and focus.
If I think back to my thumb ‘reveal’ video a while back, this is an enormous improvement and it looks almost normal now.
