This foto is from May, when I was still quite swollen and in a lot of pain. Today, as August is turning into September, the swelling is gone and I only feel a little twitch of discomfort.
"Only a twitch" provided I avoid several types of movements that involve gripping and twisting, and lifting anything more than about 15lbs tops (the cat is 13!). It's still quite easy to aggravate and takes a few days to settle back down if I do something stupid.
I don't know what this means for the garden next year (or, ever). I've had some ideas about how to manage my work differently, both in terms of time and tools -- but even that is contingent on me being well and with some strength returned.
Fingers crossed -- on my left hand.
