Doctors appointments and other stuff

Well, I'm sitting on the deck, listening to Pandora radio and trying to figure out what is going on with my hand.

I went to the Dr on Friday and got an EMG done on my left hand. The results told me what I already knew, I don't have carpel Tunnel.  So, what do I have?  What is actually wrong with the thumb on my left hand?  Will it get better or is it going to be this way for the rest of my life?  Asking those questions leaves  me feeling like Bill Cosby when he asked his little daughter "Why did you do that?" and she says "I don't know".  In other words I am no closer to an answer now that I was 5 months ago.

I have an appointment in Charleston on Monday with Dr. Ted Jackson.  From everything that I've heard he's one of the best hand specialist around and he'll be able to figure out what's going on.  At least I hope he will.

Anyway, enough of that!!  In case no one noticed, I've been rather busy lately and haven't had time to do the usual blogging things that I do.  I'm not even at my house right now.  I'm at Art's place and I'm using his laptop to post with.  I don't have any pictures to put up today, so I thought I'd sit out here and watch the birds hop around the deck and eat corn.  (Not that listening to my music is something that I enjoy, because it is.  And I enjoy being around Art, but he's watching the WV game and I'm just not that interested in it today, so I thought I would come out here and play around with the laptop!)

Now, this brings us to the subject of Art.  Well, all I will say is that things are wonderful and I'm very, very, very happy (to the point of singing every morning when I get up and laughing at simple things that usually don't move me to laughter).  So, what does all this mean?  Well, it means that I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing, enjoying his company and not asking "why me" too often.  (yeah, I know, it's going to be almost impossible for me to get through a day without asking that question, but at least this time I'm asking "why me" in a positive way, meaning why are things going so well for me, what have I done to deserve it?  It's actually nice to ask it that way instead of "Why does my life suck?") I'm hoping to be around more often after we get this Dr. thing figured out, or should I say after the Dr. gets the thumb thing figured out.  

Until then, stay happy and don't do anything that you're ashamed to tell your grandkids!!!
