Dis-Armed

So probably one of the most unfortunate things just happened at work, not 30 minutes into my shift. I thought I had just simply bumped my elbow into the door handle– no big deal– except it was a big deal because my hand was numbing and there was a lot of swelling on the site.

So I get the rest of the day off, but this means /i need to not work my right arm at all (that’s the injured arm). Likely, I should be okay to work tomorrow, but I’m not sure at the moment what will happen. Bleh. May post tomorrow if the arm is better, we’ll see. In case I don’t, you know why!

For now I get to sleep and keep the arm elevated. yay. I am already itching to write things and I can’t… it is too slow working with just one hand, but i can’t do much with both or the right arm hurts and I have to stop. The doctor mentioned physical therapy as an otpion if it’s gotten too bad, but i really hope it doesn’t come to that. I’m worried it might interfere with my November, but bruising isn’t a fracture, so there’s less worry there, right?

Here’s hoping it goes all right.
