Thank goodness for this brace I purchased at Walgreen's
I wear it during the day, and occasionally remove it if the swelling is too much and then I ice it. I wore it in the pool with the kids (to cool off from this week's heat wave) but I don't usually wear it to bed.
At the moment, I can type with my thumb as it is not too swollen. But if I push it, it gets sore and swells up. It's not broken because I can wiggle t to a limited degree, but I'm watching it to see if I have a ligament issue. So far, I have not gone to a doctor since there has been improvement.
It has definitely slowed me down in a number of areas, but I managed to work on my stepson's laptop cover:
|back side, with fused dragon|
|This is a set of 4 pillows. I ran out of stuffing for the last, flat rectangular|
pillow on the bottom, and my thumb is not yet strong enough to hand stitch
the last few inches I left open for the stuffing (hence the binder clips).
Perhaps I will have enough grip strength to attempt that this week.
So there you have the small projects I was able to manage, but I am so grateful that my thumb is not broken!
Here's to appreciating the little things in life!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
