The update

And the verdict is in. If my thumb has gone back to where it is in the time since I had the last cortisone shot, another shot will make no difference. So, Thursday May 29.

On the plus side, he says that I can get back to playing guitar as soon as the stitches are out, and I have almost four weeks to get back to where I need be for a short set. If I am not up to it by that time, it's ok, since it's a short set opening for Heather Dale at a house concert at our place, and I can back out of that if need be, or pick songs carefully to put the least strain on my thumb.. The next show is Detcon a month later.

It will take about 5 minutes. I will be awake for it. I expect it to be kinda creepy but cool as well. I ended up with two or three stitches last time, should be the same this time. My grip will change. But the doctor seems to think that it should be workable.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.
