My hands are small, but they're my hands



It's probably (big shock) carpal tunnel syndrome, and there is weakness in my right thumb. I've always had very strong hands, so this is...more signs that the warranty has expired.

I'm to wear a brace at night and when knitting (I can knit again!) and I'm getting a nerve test in a couple of weeks - this is largely to rule out neuropathy.

Surgery is a last ditch option that he believes we can avoid. Yay.

In other news, my morning BG was 131, which is the best it's been after fasting. And whatever nausea I was feeling from the metformin is gone. And now it's 180 two hours after breakfast - also lower than it's been. Metformin or diet - something's working.

yay for knitting!

I might have to not knit today, if I'm still keeping this heat pack on my arm [it's kinda heavy.]

I haven't knitted in a month. I miss it terribly.

Yay for knitting! I'm glad it looks like you can avoid surgery.

Yay for knitting! Yay for no surgery! And I'm very glad to hear the metformin/diet combination is working.

I'm glad to hear things are going well with the metformin/diet. And yay for knitting and for avoiding surgery.

I'm still waiting for a little machine that'll knit stuff for me.

Debbie: didn't your mother have something like that? A big thing with a lot of needles sticking up?
