Last Friday I had a blood draw and eagerly waited for the results on Monday morning. They were very good. My total cholesterol dropped by 10%!
Everything else went down as well, and I am now have "normal" ranges.
The doctor encourages me to "keep up the good work."
We had a pleasant few days with out-of-town guests, (for one night I allowed myself to drink wine and got totally snockered.) Then for the rest of the week Craig settled down to getting a little done on the house, and I finished the Tiger that had been ordered.
This coming Monday I am having surgery on my left hand. I am left handed! I have had reoccurring bouts of trigger finger for the past few years. It was treated with cortisone twice, but the hand specialists says a third injection could cause damage.
I have been indecisive all week. The hand doesn't hurt very much now, because there is only a little inflammation, but for that same reason, it is a good time to do the procedure.
It has been about six weeks since all of this has started, and it will be weeks before It is healed completely.
If we ever do get to be full-timers, I would not want to be tied down to an area for that long for something like this.
On the other hand, this is my glue gun, animalhead making hand.
What if there are complications?
A little scary. But, I'm sure all will go well.
Keep me in your thoughts next week.
