It seems as if that’s been the pattern of my life for the past few months. Which doctor is it today? A familiar question. The eye doctor re a cataract operation, the hand surgeon doctor re fingers that are a bit out of shape, the hand physiotherapist; and for Ian the bloods doctor for the monthly check-up, and the neurologist and the physiotherapist for difficulty in walking. Which doctor which office? It has become a bit of a blur but all is basically well and we are gradually working through our ailments. Are we ageing? Yes!!
this is the splendid blue splint I had to wear on my right hand for 6 weeks, I could have chosen black or purple so when it became apparent that all was not well with my left hand, purple was the color I chose selfie of the left hand splint I became very adept at doing things with the thumb and first finger of each hand – including knitting. The hand surgeon suggested that the tendons in the knuckles had shifted out of place. This condition might have been developing gradually over a long period of time. I call this ageing. And I think it might have been caused by knitting. Is it arthritis? tendonitis? who’s to say. I’ve now been discharged by the surgeon and the physio and we’ll see how I get on with the splints and various supports and exercises. I’m still knitting, and the cat seems to approve
