Quick Fix

My carpal tunnel surgery only took about an hour from the time I arrived. The actual procedure was only 10 minutes. It's been 24 hours now and the swelling and pain are gone unless I overwork it or have Avyie grab my arm to swing :o

I'm excited to have a fully functuonal hand again. Aimee is as well and has my massage schedule lined up for the next couple months already ;)

-Update - here is the external result a week later. Tiny incision right on a crease in my wrist.
