But wait, there's more!

Going to the doctor tomorrow. Another case of trigger thumb, this time on my right hand. I hope that I can avoid surgery for awhile, but it's coming.

I went in in December and they gave me a cortisone shot, which helped for several months. If all goes well they will do that again, and I can get through this years shows and take some time off from playing in October. If not, I have a plan. I know that my grip was dodgy on my left hand for awhile. I have never gotten back quite all the strength. So I am worried about it being my pick hand. But I have a plan for picks involving super glue and staples that I think will work. I just want to be able to keep playing my instruments. I already had to quit the drums, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't play guitar.

Oh, and I have this issue with my left knee. I guess I'm not done with surgery until I collect the entire set. I limp therefore I am. I will say that where I work seems to have a lot to do with my knee. It gets better the longer I am away from work. When I was home with pneumonia, my legs were great by the end of it. I have tried all kinds of configurations with my work space, but nothing seems to change. By the end of the day I can't walk. The real worry is that it kept it up all weekend, something that hasn't really happened before.
