Update: On the mend!

Hello readers! It occurred to me that I haven’t updated in a bit and I thought maybe you’d like to know what’s up: I’m doing a lot better! I had inadvertently made my right arm worse before I knew I had tendinitis, then overworked my left arm trying to compensate, then I was essentially left sitting on the couch with both arms wrapped up in ice and wrist splints for two and a half weeks going stir crazy thinking about how much I wanted to draw, haha. I think I should be good to go this weekend to start working on pages again – though I’m know I’m going to have to take it easy until I feel confident I’m not going to re-aggravate anything. I will do my best to deliver you a new page as soon as I can get it done! It might be slow going for a while but please bear with me, and thanks for your patience. 🙂

    The most important thing is that you take care of you, Al’s over eight hundred years old, he can wait a little longer. 🙂

    Saving up three to four pages every two weeks is kind of intense. One page every week or so is a good stretch goal while you recover, if you can pull it off.

    Hey, we’re just happy you’re doing better!!

    Has the doc suggested an anti-inflammatory Med? Having had a tendonitis in my right wrist a couple of times in my life, I found that Voltaren gel truly worked wonders for me, both in terms of pain relief as well as speeding healing. Topically applied, not oral. The stuff is available orally, but the topical worked much better for me. It’s prescription only.

    • I haven’t heard of this, but I have a follow up soon so I’ll ask about it! Thanks 🙂

        Small print details. The drug’s generic name is diclofenac. Voltaren gel is branded so it will likely be a higher copay on most insurance. Your doc may or may not be familiar with it.

  • Take your time and get better! There’s no rush. 🙂

    I’m glad you’re feeling better, even if it’s a little, hope to see you soon 100% recovered. I have fringers crossed for you!

    How’s your hand feeling, Asmo?? We haven’t heard about it in a little while. Hope it’s feeling better!
