    Health update: Turns out I don't have De Quervain's Tendonitis on my left wrist. I have the same thing going on as in my right thumb, almost! The first joint has arthritis so he fitted me with a special brace that can be used throughout the day during activities which will protect it from overuse. This doctor is NOT knife happy and prefers to avoid surgery and cortisone shots when possible. His first line of defense involves 3 things: behavior modification, topical pain relievers (Voltaren, Salonpas, etc.) and assistive devices.

    So there you have it! Maybe his advice to me might be helpful for some of you.

    My kind of Doc. I prefer not to be poked or cut unless there’s no other alternative.

    His sentiment exactly. He added that patients need to be psychologically ready for surgery and that happens when there really is no other alternative. Otherwise, you could have regrets because surgery and rehabilitation is no joke. He seems like a wise man.

    I forgot to add that my thyroid doc ordered me to cut my meds in half again. My last lab results showed a drop in the antibodies.

    I just came in from washing the outside of my windows with that gadget you attach to your hose. It actually works! No need to use a squeegee or dry rag. Took some of the schmutz off my siding too:thumb:......it can get messy, Playtex gloves with folded cuffs would have helped.

    Afternoon all:)....I'm just recouping from a tumultuous morning. I woke up thinking I had an 11am presentation and the material was nowhere to be found. I was sent the link but couldn't log in because my ancient, 20 yr old password was lost along with my entire password manager inside my settings. Don't ask! Took me forever to figure out what happened to it. Then the homepage icon went missing, lol. With all the commotion I finally find out that the presentation/zoom mtg. is next wknd.:phew:
