Tennis Elbow-OUCH!!!

No I don't play tennis, atleast not for many years, but I do have tennis elbow!  I had my first physical therapy yesterday afternoon and I hope to goodness I can get rid of that!!  It has been determined that I am using my mouse so much at work and for long periods of time that I know have carpal tunnel and tennis elbow!  I wasn't surprised when the hand specialist told me I had carpal tunnel but I was really surprised when he told me I have tennis elbow.  I just thought the pain from the carpal had radiated up my arm.  I don't have to go back to PT for the tennis elbow as long as I do what the therapist said and do my exercises a few times during the day.  You can bet I will do that because it is so hard to schedule all the appts. for PT with my work schedule.

To help the situation I have obtained a new mouse.  I am now using a track ball mouse and where has this wonderful thing been all my computer using life!  I love it!!  I have it really close to the edge of my desk too

I've a slight case of carpal T too - it can be painful and of course I know I should stay off the mouse more - addiction to blogging is so BAD!!!!!

Hope your treatment and new mouse helps Sherri.
Enjoy the 4th - perhaps cooking and partying will give you a break - and have someone else do the first part!!!!!

Hugs - Mary

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
