Well, so much for Camp NaNo

Some health issues stemming from a recent tooth extraction have left me with a weakened left arm and a lack of dexterity in that hand.

It was worse the day just after the dentist visit, but the weakness hasn’t fully resolved yet. Tests show significant impairment in my hands, especially the left. There’s the possibility of a herniated disk in my neck (and the neurologist also thinks I have an abdominal hernia–oy!). My blood pressure is also up despite my meds.

I am taking anti-inflammatories to help release any nerve bundles in narrow places, and I’m taking my second diuretic on a regular basis as well. I know this is all TMI, but until I get my hands back to full strength, I’m not going to be writing with any huge amounts of fiction for a bit.
