My guess is that occupational therapy won't start for 6 to 8 weeks, in the meantime the splint is on 24/7. The new custom splint is more streamlined and quite a bit for comfortable. But things still hurt, quite a lot. I had to drive into Santa Fe again this morning for a PT session on my lower back/hip problem. Two days in a row of driving that far has made me exhausted and in more pain, so I am going to take it real easy the rest of the day and read (and nap) in bed. I have to rest my right hand (the dominant one) so I don't blow that out as well while the left is healing.

It'll be a cozy afternoon in my tiny house; it's cold, and grey, and snowing-sleeting off and on. I have lots of books, some new tea and a heating pad for the back. The only thing missing is a kitty to snuggle with...
