About a week ago I injured myself.
I was playing catch with the Bear at the park. He had his mitt. I didn't have anything.
I didn't notice anything at first. But the next day I knew my thumb joint felt a little painful and weird.
Of course as many Moms do, I didn't get it checked out.
I could bend my thumb, so I figured it wasn't broken.
I just found a splint and wrapped my thumb.
It's been a week.
When I took off the wrap today I tested out my thumb. I bent it. And I heard a click sound.
Hmmm...that made me nervous. I did a couple more times and it clicked each time.
So? I headed out to the Urgent Care just in case there was a small little bone break or fracture.
One and a half hours later and $50?
I've got a sprain. Nothing is broken. Yeah!
The doc said to keep the wrapped (no splint) for the next couple of weeks.
Now WHY did I go today versus tomorrow?
Because we're traveling!
The kids and I are going to hit the road tomorrow for a week.
A week as a threesome.
The Hubs will keep the homefires burning since he's got work.
But tomorrow will be an interesting time.
We'll be headed on a route that I've never taken before.
I've already printed out a Mapquest map and taken a good look at it.
But I'll have my thumb wrapped the entire week away.
Because I've got a sprain!
