Castrophobia*

This will be short as I type with one finger.

Surgery seems to have gone well.  Pain meds had to be doubled the first two days, then only Tylenol, and since Friday no meds !  😀

Swelling was horrifying!  Fingers looked like Vienna sausages having no wrinkles at all!

Swelling is now gone.  😀

Post-op visit today to remove stitches and get new permanent cast…

I hope I survive two months of this.  The temporary one has had me in moments of delirium because of the suffocating feeling and immobility it induces… I find that to be totally ironical having had bouts of agoraphobia over the last few years.  LOL!

*ON CASTROPHOBIA:  The real term is cast claustrophobia.   I was feeling the need to rip the thing off with my teeth on several occasions this past week.  Thankfully it went away spontaneously, by the end of the week, when the last of the swelling went down! I hope it really was swelling induced and will not return.  😯

Meanwhile, Bob will continue to do all my chores that require both hands.

BIG CHEERS FOR BOB!

Comments will of course cheerfully accepted, but won’t be responded to.  I’m sorry.
