Last night I took my splint off to knit and I made sure I was using very easy to work with yarn and it was fine.  I also took an Indomethacin pill (which I have or gout attacks).  Before bed, I gave the finger a chill down and donned the splint (which Travis tried to chew off several times).

This morning when I took the splint off, the first bend was a little tight but in general it sure feels better than yesterday.  I plan to baby it today.  I'm still shooting for a cure as opposed to developing a plan for living with this forever.

My brother is visiting his son in Boston.  And he's attending his granddaughter's 4th birthday and meeting her new baby sister.  I just got a picture of the birthday girl.  Oh and he put it on G+.

I don't expect there to be much work today.  It's ok because my water aerobics class is going to eat up a chunk of time.  Getting there is not a big deal.  The class is at 1:30 and it usually takes me less than 20 minutes at mid day to get to this particular pool.  But, getting home on Fridays is a bitch.  For some reason the traffic going back south to downtown is always a bitch at 2:30 on Fridays.  

Next week the class moves to 11:15 for the summer and that should help substantially.

Also, note to me.  Get gas.  I have no favorite easy gas station and I hate pumping gas anyway so I always put it off and forget about it and one of these days that scenario is going to bite me in the ass.  I do not want that to be soon.  So... I will get gas today.

It's a cloudy morning and I'm so grateful.  The reports about the record heat in other parts of the country are making me sweat and grateful to be here.

I have ordered a lot of stuff and received a lot of packages in my day but I have never seen one labeled Red Hot Rush. (which always finds my place).  
So.... I'm a giant fan, now, of Red Hot Rush.  Plus it makes me feel important.  
The package contained a balance flotation belt for aqua exercise which I don't even need until Monday but, heck, I'm going to give it a maiden try today!

This evening my finger is seriously better.  Seriously.  It's still a little swollen and if I put a lot of pressure on it just the right way, it still smarts a lot but just general typing and knitting is barely uncomfortable!  I'm so encouraged.  I'm going to try to keep up the gout pills, icing, splint and babying until it feels just like the one on the left hand.

Yet another thing to be oh so grateful for.  I will never take this finger for granted again!

I was out of college when Title IX happened. I was not athletic in any way and was oblivious to the need for it or the good it would do.  Now, 40 years later, I am so appreciative.  
(I'm am also so grateful for the timing since I'm a lardass completely equipped and interested in the level of athletics I was encouraged to join - none.)
