This is the last piece of art I was able to create before my right hand developed a condition called gout this week. Let me just tell you it's really painful. Imagine how little you can do when it's totally disabling your thumb and index finger. My finger joints are really inflamed. Luckily, I was able to get right in to see my doc and I am now on hardcore anti-inflammatories. (Though the list of side effects gives me the heebie jeebies!)
The good thing is that I am one of those people who happens to be ambidextrous so I can manage for now, but it's annoying just the same. I am typing this one handed, for example, which takes forever. *sigh* Hopefully this too shall pass. I am hoping it's markedly better by tomorrow-I am teaching two middle school classes tomorrow and I need my hands!
