And we're back...

Posted by skoobee on Monday, November 15, 2010

I know, I've been really quiet on the BHO for a couple of weeks.  There is a good reason though.  Well, there's a reason, but it's not good for me!  The return of my lateral epicondylitis (or Tennis Elbow to those of us who speak English)

Yup, it's back, and with a vengeance.  I can barely grip the handle of my Bone china tea-cup and although the 'claw' position for my hand is very comfortable, the motion of moving my wrist to play anything is excrutiating.  Seriously, lifting my mug of coffee first thing of a morning is like being stabbed in the elbow/forearm.

So we come to the inevitible decision that we must stop playing (again), and for at least 8 weeks this time.  I'd like to say that this is because I 'chose' to do the right thing, but in actual fact, at the moment, I just can't play.  I'll be booking myself in for some more steroids in the tendon, doing my physio and becoming more left-handed in the next 8 weeks, but I'll be thinking about playing Banjo!

I'll keep checking the BHO, of course - it's fascinating and I can still type (with short breaks), but recording and playing will have to stop.  Another sign that he kids were right - I really am old now, 'cus things that used to work fine, are starting to break!

Thanks Tom. Sorry to say I had the Injection last night, and they've managed to damage the nerve. Now that is painful! All be over in a week or two though.
