The last few days, my joints have ached, particularly in my forearms and hands. They feel stiff and painful to move. This morning, I woke up with completely numb hands. It took about 30 minutes before they were fully mobile. My initial reaction was, “WTF??!!”

Whatever the cause or problem, this will affect my writing and typing. I’m having difficulty even holding a pen. So there will continue to be infrequent and brief posts here. Sorry about that.

    I’m thinking WTF? too! I only hope you get to the bottom of it, and feel better soon. That sounds most uncomfortable and awkward, too. Rest will hopefully help. So take it as easy as you can. (I know… seeing the previous photo – too, too cute – how much rest can you get?)

    I hate to come off as a nag. (I just realized just this instant the reason my mother was such a nag. It’s because she cared.)

    I care about you. And I’m worried. So, nag I will.

    I already said this about your knees/bones cracking, and I am about to say it again: If you haven’t seen the doctor about these symptoms, friend, DO. Now. Please?

    I appreciate the concern! I’m finding the knee is doing better if I work out hard on the bike and set the resistance high to really strengthen the muscles. I think it’s a support issue with the knee, but I will call the surgeon.

    As for the hands, I have an idea what might be at the bottom of this, but this will also require a doctor, so I’ll get on it!
