Fridaily with oof.

Spent almost all of yesterday afternoon waiting to see the orthopedic doctor, who I saw for about 10 minutes. I have mixed feeling about the results - xrays showed no bone damage, so it is all in my head and I'm a big crybaby all soft tissue damage in both wrist and ankle. My tendons in the wrist are inflamed, which the doctor surmised was from repetitive use, after I explained what I do with it. I have a magic prescription anti-inflammatory cream to apply 3x a day. The solution is not to use the wrist, but that's really not an option. There are surgical procedures, if the pain becomes unsurmountable. The ankle is just a bad sprain, which can last up to 6 months, apparently. (!!!) He advised me to wear shoes with ankle support, which I have not been doing, and to keep wearing the brace.

So... more of the same.

The wrist is feeling a great deal better today, and the ankle is not, particularly.

Sally forth!

Lots of coding to do, today, and a bunch of filing and studio-finishing. Depending on my wrist, I'm really chomping at the bit to do some art and writing.

Oh, and we MADE it for Commission-Control! Horrah!! I am adding the site to my freelance paid column, and getting cranking on it asap! You guys are the best!
