psst, hey buddy, wanna see my x-rays?

Sure you do! I'm posting them whether you want to or not though! These are pics of them, the originals are much nicer looking, my camera kinda washed out some areas. My doctor can't tell if the slight weirdness in the last thumb joint is recent or is leftover damage from when I was 11 years old (my thumb already did stick out funny on the left side of that last joint). Soo.... I have to go see an orthopedic doctor, and I don't yet know if it's broken or not. Dang it! I really hate all this medical stuff.

I spent way too much time sitting around feeling sorry for myself today. But, there are things I could still do, so I need to do them:

-preliminary sketches for pendants
-could probably scrim a small flat piece (can't hold onto the pistol grips yet, it hurts, but I need to do something. No work = no pay = uh oh!)
-make jam! (anyone want peach or nectarine? Let me know!)
-paint that chicken/dragon thing I dreamed about

Okay, that should all keep me busy. I need to let a few clients know that there's a hitch in my giddyup though for a little while. Sigh.

Wahhh, I want to go riding! :-(

Oh, Shylah was colicky tonight. Great. I walked her for quite some time til she seemed to feel better. She's now confined to the stall + teeny part of the corral so I can more easily keep an eye on her, but not in a place where she can do something dumb like eat insulators. I started her on Sand Clear (just in case), gotta go get more tomorrow.

If it ain't one thing it's another.

I like the okay and thumbs up signs you gave in two of the xrays! That is just cool. Did you get to do that b/c your mom is a doc? -BM

Uh, no. I did that because the x-ray tech told me to. They're very precise, they arrange all the fingers just so.
