(WARNING: this blog post is full of bad puns!)
Last week I had an appointment with my rheumatologist. Even though it did not feel like it at the time, it was a matter of joint interest. The reason for this was the news she had for me. In this joint statement she told me that my right wrist had a crack in the joint (some joint damage). You can imagine that this news threw me completely out of joint. This was not the type of joint hearing I had travelled all the way to the hospital to, to hear. In fact I was so upset I felt I had sufficient grounds to get my doctor thrown in the joint. Not that the hospital is such a classy joint…
I was still reeling when I walked to my car. To calm myself down I considered rolling a joint, but upon reflection I decided that seeing more than three colors in a traffic light was not going to solve this problem, however much fun it would be to see a technicolor light sign. Having something to eat seemed more appropriate so I swung by the local burger joint.
After lunch I visited my physical therapist for a joint session. The full body workout was good and left me feeling stronger and supple. I had a long and fruitful joint discussion with my PT about my wrist and we felt confident and at ease to move forward in this new situation. In fact I would dare say that my physical therapist and I were joint winners.
Thank for your time, take care of yourself and remember to keep passing the open windows.
