Nothing seems to be broken in the wrist. X-rays were negative (or should that be "positive"?). The doctor said it it probably a sprain. I am to get a splint that will imobilize my thumb since the pain is mostly at the base of the thumb. I had to come home because the heating/air system is getting it's semiannual check today and they should be here very soon.. After they finish doing that, I'll go get the splint. If it doesn't improve by next week, I will have to see an orthelpedic doctor to see what is going on.
So that is good, in general. The problem is that I won't be able to lift very well, and I won't be very agile in handling the hammer or power tools. There isn't much left to do, but I will need to do some of the above. I'm sure I can find some help, but it is an inconvenience, for sure.
It could certainly be worse. I guess I'd better quit griping and get on with it!! Good day, all!!
