This ordeal has been the most frustrating thing I have had to deal with in a long, long, time.
Sure, there was the 1986 Browns/Broncos playoff game.
The 1987 Browns/Broncos playoff game.
That really sucked.
The 1989 Browns/Broncos playoff game. That was just depressing.
But this numb hand/arm/back pain thing is just plain evil.
Last week I was told by my family doctor that he was scheduling a “nerve test” for me. From what I gather this is where they put electrodes on my hand and zap me like the guy in the lab test in Ghostbusters. Really looking forward to that. The scheduling can take anywhere from 3-10 days and we’re nearing the 10 day mark as we wait on insurance to decide if I REALLY need this nerve test. I suppose they are deciding if I should just suck it up and deal with it.
It’s maddening. By now I have lost nearly all feeling in my right index finger. It’s just a digit at this point. I still feel like this is originating from my back or spine. Xrays were negative. So I sit and wait and refrain from typing as much as I can which for a guy who earns his coin sitting at a desk and writing an editing all day …kind of a problem, no?
I have so many things I’d like to be talking about with all of you. Dark Souls has owned my life the past week.
But for now, I’m still on the DL.
Hopefully this gets resolved soon.
Oh– and Happy Halloween.
