Sometimes you just gotta laugh at what life throws at you, otherwise you just bawl, the positive thing is, if life is still throwing stuff at me then it means I’m alive, that in itself is a mammoth blessing 🙏🏻😇 The Hand specialist told I have a second condition on my right hand, totally non related to the first.😳 I have “Trigger Finger” on top of “Duputrens Contracture” (now my cowboy gun toten career is over too 😉).✊ Basically means my tendon is swelling, getting inflamed and/or tendon sheath is narrowing.
My tendon gets stuck in the sheath and becomes a tender inflamed lump, catching of the tendon leads to a cramp type scenario and popping sensation in my finger, when the finger shoots out straight.
Pain trying to bend finger and pain when trying to open palm. ( mumma was right when she says I’m a pain 😉) Positives of this
-Great news is steroid injection lasts 3 months longer than the Duputrens injection, -they only need one injection as they put the numbing meds in with the steroids
- I’m tough as nails
-Robbie can crack another ‘let’s go second hand shopping’ Dad joke (shaking my head)
-wouldn’t it be funny if I got guns 💪🏻 on my ‘trigger finger” because of the steroids haha
-I have hands that still work
Choosing to look at the funny side and roll with the punches or gammy hand slap 💖
