The update on the whacked and wonky hand is that it looks like I have no fractures (thank you to Robert for sending me off for an X-ray!) and my friend Sharon has been healing my hand with acupuncture and herbs. The swelling is almost gone and I am slowly able to move my thumb.
My hand will live!
I'm still off yoga and I still have a lot of pain in my left hand, but it is manageable and I'm still able to teach and adjust students. The bugger is that once I took off the bandage people seemed to think grabbing my hand was in the cards. On several occasions I've let out a squeal so high that people have had to peel me off the ceiling.
Back away from the chick with the wonky hand, people. She bites!
If you haven't tried acupuncture I highly recommend it. I've had amazing results over the years from it and have decided to stay in treatment for other issues to get on top of things. And those needles just feel kind of yummy stuck in there moving all of that energy around. I aways leave feeling totally euphoric. Give it a go, I say. You must just like it. And the outcome can be awe inspiring. Truly.
