DAY 130: BAD ELBOW
There are certain things you really need your elbow for and not being able to bend it presents a problem. Example A--combing my hair. I can't do my hair, it hurts too bad. I'd planned to go to the museum today and have my friend come over and do my hair before we left, but I got too nauseous and dizzy from the pain meds to go to the museum. Result--hair not done and half a bottle of Pepto done. Example B--brushing my teeth with my right hand just isn't possible right now. Brushing one's teeth requires a bent elbow and I can't do that. So I'm getting a marginally good brushing by using my left hand to it. But I don't think my dentist would be that happy with my lack of ambidextrous skills. I'd write down some more examples, but I'm just too tired right now.
