No Supinator for You!

On Wednesday I hurt my left arm, and am still typing one-handed. Carol (who is a physical therapist) tells me that I may have pulled my left supinator. I didn't even know I had a supinator, which to me sounds like a brand of crockpot. Whatever a supinator might in fact be, I know by now that it hurts like hell when mistreated.

Bottom line: I may not be doing much posting for the coming week. Lesson: I am 59, not 19. I cannot throw boxes full of books around with the aplomb I once exhibited. I would like to get my aplomb back, but like my hair, that train may have left the station.

I'll be back when I can use my left hand again.

You don't look 59 though

I know the photo is a few years old, but you don't look over 50 in it, so at least that train hasn't left. Get well!

Re: You don't look 59 though

Hand is definitely better. I figured out a system to type with my left hand without having to hold it up in the air (which hurts!): I cross my legs and rest my left wrist on my right knee. It's not as fast as I'm used to, but since what I'm used to is in excess of 100 wpm, being able to go 50 or 60 without pain is useful.

My current LJ photo was taken on a cruise boat in 2004, when I was 52. I guess I should get something a little newer, though in truth I don't look much different.
