I’m sorry to say I can’t publish a new article I had planned this week because I’ve gone and injured one of my fingers. It’s been swollen for many months, but it recently got so painful that I finally went to the doctor to get it X-rayed on Friday. I learned that the bones at one of the joints are out of position, which is causing the swelling and even a bit of arthritis. I’m hopefully going to talk to an orthopedic doctor this coming week to see if it can be treated, but in the meantime it’s painful for me to type on a keyboard, especially with two of my fingers taped together.
My doctor said to lay off activities that use my hands as much as possible, which is kind of hard to do as a writer. I will try to power through in the future and come up with creative workarounds. We’ll see. I’m very sorry to allow such a seemingly small thing to keep me from doing what I love and giving you quality content. Unfortunately, my hand is tied.
This is the Deja Reviewer bidding you farewell until we meet again.

Do you have a dictation app, Robert?
I do hope a remedy is found that will bring comfort, reduce the swelling, and allow you to write and type very soon. 🙂

Thank you! I’ve heard of those apps, and that sounds like a smart option, but I haven’t used one before. Thankfully, I was able to schedule an appointment tomorrow to get a Cortisone injection. Fingers crossed it’ll go well.
