I didn't realize it's been a week since I posted last. Time to catch up again.
I've been having problems with my right wrist for over a month.... of course I was hoping it would go away. Yeah, right.... Anyway, Friday I headed into Presque Isle to the walk-in clinic.
Great Blue Heron
There are several here now, but they are so flighty... never stay around long enough for a good photo.
As I figured... the problem is Carpel tunnel and isn't going to just go away. I'm wearing a brace that extends nearly half way to my elbow... doesn't make for easy typing or anything else for that matter.
Reminds me of Dizzy's post... he describe them as having the tips of their tails dipped in a can of yellow paint. So right!
Anyway, I've really limited my computer time. The combination of using the computer (which includes downloading and processing the
hundreds thousands of photos I take) and using the mowers (my main job here is mowing and trail maintenance) probably aggravated an already blossoming condition.
Pretty even if it does feel like a cactus!
I tried to take a photo of my lovely splint-like apparatus. Finally figured out how to take a photo of my right hand... using my left hand to operate the camera adjustments... then darned if the memory card was defective and no photo afterall. Oh well... doubt if y'all really want to see my $40 splint. But then... heck... I'll show it another time. After all, I don't spend $40 on just anything!
I see this young Bull Moose quite often.
He's gotten so he just stands and watches me take his photo.
The doctor at the clinic says I should wear this splint 24/7 for 4 months!!!!!
I will admit that it immobilizes my wrist to the point that I don't feel a lot of pain now. He also recommended I take Aleve, to reduce pain and inflammation. I've never been one to take much medication so was hesitant about this, but am taking one each morning. We'll see how that works.

It's starting to look like autumn here, although this week is supposed to get into the 80 degree temps. Maybe that's Indian Summer for Maine?
Anyway, I am trying to keep up with reading other folks blogs but haven't been commenting as much as I'd like.
I keep trying to get a good picture of this little guy... I want to see the colors stand out... and the feathers on his head look like a "DA". (Do you know what I mean?) I'll keep trying.
But for now...
That's All For Today!
