And Then...

... after all that yesterday, I spilled my iced tea on the desk, floor, papers, keyboard, and trackball. I went down to the bedroom closet to get a batch of extra towels and pulled them out with my right hand on top and left hand on the bottom. Something happened and they got away from my right hand and bent my left hand back as far as it could go. Yes, I've pulled a muscle down the middle of my left inner forearm. I have an Ace bandage on it for the Compression part of RICE and will do the rest when I get offline.

At least last night was fine with the cats -- Spirit stayed out here and the other two slept with me -- and Spirit got enough wet food this morning because I fiddled around in the kitchen until she did. She usually goes to the living room for snackies when I leave the kitchen (I get the paper on the way) and I decided to see if she'd eat as long as I was in the kitchen and she did.

Both the keyboard and trackball seemed dry this morning and the keyboard was, but the inside of the trackball wasn't, so I plugged in the backup and will open and dry the regular one tonight (I have a backup keyboard, too).

I decided to see about getting into the van because I use my left hand to support myself, and it hurts a bit, but I was able to get in and drive okay. The only thing I can't do with my left hand is push the window buttons. I got money from the ATM and mailed a DVD. I have to get labs tomorrow, the nephrologist said specifically four weeks, so I'll be able to do that. Maybe I can get groceries on Wednesday.
