Hand update

Took Percocet to sleep last night, iced my hand. Still hurts.

I discovered there's an in-building first-aid clinic run by the city (we are in a city government building, after all, and in fact where public health is based) for building tenants. I went by for a quick check; they don't have X-ray equipment, but they were able to do a quick exam. They don't think anything's fractured and are certain nothing's broken, but I have a bruise that goes all the way through my wrist and bruised the bone itself, and I do almost certainly have a nasty sprain. Everything should be fine, but it's gonna hurt like hell for a while and I probably should get it X-rayed this weekend to look for hairline fractures.

Yay, painkillers. Owie. Considering I code for a living and am moving stuff around in the emulation lab, I foresee the box of Ibuprofen I have here becoming my best friend for a few days.

Of course, my wrist pain is nothing compared to poor kieri, who is about to undergo major oral surgery to have six teeth removed and her mouth rearranged. I gave her the Christmas present I got her a bit early as something to cheer her up and cut the amazing amount of stress she's been under (having headaches and unable to sleep because she's nervous about it); I bought her a replica of Arwen Evenstar's pendant from the Lord of the Rings, since I knew she really likes it. She's going to wear it for good luck in all this. Be well, Jen!
