Health update

The pain in my wrist is down to a manageable level again. It still hurts when I over-extend it, but at least I can grip things again. The doctor said it was probably a bruised tendon. It certainly puts my previous complaint about low-grade shoulder and wrist pain into perspective. I’m going to keep on with the left-handed mousing for the moment, though. (It actually feels kinda strange already to mouse with my right hand again.)

But as if to counterbalance the improvement in general health around the household, Fiona has now come down with the chickenpox. This is not unexpected. Alex had them about two weeks ago. With an incubation period of about 2-3 weeks, Fiona is actually right on schedule.

Curiously, the outbreak seems to be mostly restricted to her head. Being a vain kind of girlie, Fiona has taken to pulling her blanket down over her head in embarassment whenever I try to take a photo. When she’s awake, that is.
