Thumb-Bunny Is Sore

I’m not doing any hand puppets right now, that’s for sure! The surgery on my right thumb went well today. I had a clean removal of a ganglion cyst that has been growing for the past couple of months on the top of the knuckle and causing me some discomfort. I wanted to have it taken care of before it caused further trouble. 

My thumb is currently wrapped up tight and looks like a mummified watermelon! I’ll be able to take the dressing off and put on a band-aid on Thursday. The stitches will remain in for two weeks. I’ll be spending a little less time on the computer and a little more time with my Kindle as I mend. 

Thank you for all of your get well wishes wishes!
