It’s been a long and thoughtful day today but sometimes they just are I guess.
My neighbours should be happier today as the plumber has replaced the plastic union that appeared to snap of its own accord!
Lefty is complaining still today but that’s just to be ignored because tomorrow the physioterrorist gets to stretch its limits regardless of complaints.
Righty is enjoying the fact that I am now pushing its exercise having taken the physio advice over the surgeons, the scaring is weird makes it feel like my hand has been strapped down because the scar gives a little when pushed. Apparently it’s all about stretching collagen cells past their elastic limit but not so far as to tear them, sage advice I am sure.
Sensation, which seems to be subject of the day, is not really changing but that is apparently what is expected as its one of the last things to get back. At the moment most fingers have full sensation with the exception of the little ones and thumbs but the overall sensation cannot seem to do smooth, that is to say that running my fingers over glass feels like sandpaper. Given that sand is the dominant ingredient in glass you (or I) would be forgiven for thinking that my fingers read back in time but I’ve tested this theory when shaving and unless I was born with stubble it’s definitely a sensation failure.
Leggy is today’s superstar as its had the whole day without a dressing! That’s the best it’s ever been and I like to think its a affirmation of my policy of strictly ignoring medical opinion, but then I can always find success in the smallest things.
The title says highs and lows life is today’s quandary, not the actual breathing and living bit lets be fair that’s been fairly easy to understand for generations, but the overall purpose. Don’t get me wrong I have many purposes throughout a working day but I am struggling right now to isolate the overall purpose of general existence and what it is that its all for…..
To end on a lighter note I have just seen an advert for bio oil on the television, do you think they do bio grease? I’m thinking righty may need a little more than an oil that reduces stretch marks!
