Several of you said I should go to the doctor so I finally did go this afternoon. Got x-rayed and looked at, there’s nothing broken. That’s good but it still hurts like the dickens! He said the joint was pretty swollen and bruised and that it would take some time for it to get better. So things like opening a door or bottle will still be hard for me for a few weeks but everything is fine. Hubby had told me all along it was just jammed or hyperextended and that’s what the doctor said too, now Don will think he IS a doctor! I might have gotten more sympathy at home if there was something “really” wrong with it. 😆
Thanks for asking about it!

    Glad you went to the doc, and hope the swelling goes down – should you ice it ? Or is it too late?
    Gentle with that thumb !

    I’m glad you went too, better safe than sorry. I’m sorry it hurts, did he give you anything for the pain or did he wrap it or anything? Anything you’re supposed to do, other than just let it heal?

    And tell Dr. Don hello for us, LOL!

    I hope each day gets a little easier for you and that the pain goes away. I bet you do feel better knowing for sure… the uncertainty always adds stress.

    Hi, Got your link from Amy’s site and checked it out. Read this blog first and thought skiing and then saw the post below. It’s a typical ski injury around here, but worth getting it checked out to make sure you didn’t tear or break anything.

    We have the same tastes in books and I was glad to stop by, b/c I was raving about Elizabeth Berg’s books, but had forgotten her name.

    Good luck with your thumb, how many more of weeks do you have left of snow in Colorado?

    I hate it when they are right! But, I’m so glad that he was 🙂 I hope it heals up quickly for you!

    I forgot to mention that my baked bean recipe is very good—it is great with burgers or other summer grilling foods. Did you fix the deer for your son? I really can’t believe I am fixing it again this week, but this deer really did taste all right to me!

    I’m glad that you went to the doctor and that nothing is broken. A little icing of the joint might help, along with some anti-inflammatory meds. Thanks for letting us know.
