I have not posted in awhile, but I want to let everyone know that I am doing ok.
I've ditched my splint and have not had my finger wrapped for several days.
(I still have the tunnel catheter and am getting my nightly dose of IV antibiotic).
I also went on a short ride (down the block and back) on one of the cruisers last week.
Riding is fine, but U-Turns are a lot scarier.
AND I drove my dads car!!!
The short drive with both of my parents reminding me to signal before turns made me feel like I was 15 again. Now I'm reviewing the DMV manual to make sure I can make it through any testing they will require for my renewal.
I am also trying to figure out how I'm going to start the car.
(The long-term solution is to get a key less ignition vehicle, but not sure I'm going to buy something just yet).

“The cure for everything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea.”
I haven't been able to be in the water for the last 3 months due to open wounds.
I've shed my share of these, but never found them to be a satisfactory cure.
I have been waiting to donate some of this for a long time, but until this week I have been told not to work out because an elevating my blood pressure could overwhelm the tissue making up my temporary thumb.
Yesterday I made it up to the club and sat on a bike for a full hour.
I was not surprised at how good it felt to sweat, but was glad that I could pull it off without any pain in my hip.
Hopefully I will get to start doing this (and more) on a regular basis.
