I should be able to restart my fitness today. I have been out of commission since Thursday morning when I somehow managed to shut my right thumb in the door of our Sportage. I think the door caught my glove and wedged the thumb between the door and the car frame. I made it through work on Thursday somehow, but by the time I left, the thumb was quite purple, sore and throbbing. I had trouble signing the credit card receipt for the take out food I picked up on the way home. Thursday night's sleep was interrupted at 2 am by throbbing pain. I ended up calling out for my shift on Friday, taking advil and tylenol for the pain and a benedryl to help me get back to sleep. There was no way I could do my work without use of my right thumb and it was going to be too tender to use. I could not even put my hand down to support me for my yoga class-so that didn't happen either.....
I am doing better today. I have been able to do a bit of hand sewing and have already racked up 2000 steps on my way to my 12000 step goal. Here's to recovery.....however long it takes.
