#3: Right Hand, Nov. 2008 and Jan. 2009

Right hand, from November, 2008. You can see the surgical scar and the lump of calcified tissue toward the outside of the hand, from a previous case of tenosynovitis. Elaborate surgery, it was. That was done to repair just one tendon. Just one. It was the outside tendon controlling the pinkie finger. Apparently, pinkies and forefingers have two tendons each, not just one.

The surgery worked great. About a week after it healed, the tenosynovitis - thwarted from its evil designs on my outside tendon - moved into the second pinkie tendon. The hand surgeon says that tendon is about the size of a hair, making it nearly impossible to operate on without damaging it. No more surgery, no can the pinkie no longer moves correctly, and I *stutter* in Sign Language now.

So. The pinkie was *dropped,* permanently damaged from tenosynovitis. Crippled, if you will; that word doesn't bother me any, although I wish it had no cause to be said.

Now it's getting dropped worse. Hmmm.

From week of January 12, 2009. It got so bad so very fast...
