I've caught a cold!

So as crazy as it sounds, it is true, I have caught a cold IN MY THUMB!!!! I know you are all laughing hysterically right now, and I have to say, it sounds insane, but my thumb started hurting, like really bad, about 5 weeks ago, I can't really remember hurting it per say, I mean, I chopped wood, I did a lot of dishes (ok so dishes really can't hurt, but a girl can try) but nothing really stood out to say this is it!!! So I FINALLY went to the Dr. and he said that nothing is broke, and it doesn't seem as if the ligaments or tendons are torn, so what he thinks it is, is that there was a virus in my body that settled in the joints of my thumb! And my thumb was a little sore from something, possibly chopping wood, who knows, maybe vaccuming, (guess the kids better take over) so he gave me some antinflamitories (sp??) to take for the next month, but it could take up to 5 more months to get my thumb over its cold, Is this crazy???? I just want my thumb better, why can't I just soak it in nyquil???

OK - laughing HYSTERICALLY at the idea of soaking it in nyquil!!! Maybe you should use windex? Like on Big Fat Greek Wedding?
In other thoughts... I'm so sorry that you have something ELSE sick! Time for winter to leave your family alone!!!

I am totally laughing outloud and get really strange looks from my husband about the soaking in Nyquil too LOL Seriously....this is something that would happen to me and that is the weirdest thing I have EVER heard. I am so sorry. 5 freaking months....are you kidding me. You poor thing. I guess that chopping wood, vacumming, dishes, cooking etc etc for 5 months :)

I've never heard of that before! Hopefully your poor little thumb will feel better sooner than 5 months from now!
