It may be minor, but it’s still surgery. Men with knives will be attacking my left elbow in an effort to bring relief to my tingling fingers. Seems that I have managed to damage the nerve that wraps around the point of my elbow and it needs to be re-routed somewhere else. It is straightforward surgery – but I will refrain from calling it ‘no-brainer’ for obvious reasons.
I have to stay overnight in the hospital, which isn’t a real hardship because it is for my own good to make sure there isn’t any post-op infection. The hospital in question, by the way, the the base hospital at Wright Patterson AFB. I live very close. In fact, if there weren’t any trees I could see it. When the wind is right, we can hear the music at Reveille and Retreat.
When I get back on Friday evening, I won’t be of much use here at the keyboard since I have to type with one hand. I am very fast even with this handicap, but I think I just won’t feel like it so bear with me.
