Hi Everyone, Auburn here.

Dan doing the typing. (Hi Everyone, Dan here.)

I’m suffering with a conditon called DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis – fancy name for holy cow my wrist hurts.  Bottom line is I’m unable to type for quite a while.  I am also unable to, since this effects my dominant right hand, style my hair, put on my makeup and do all my girly things.  I have a doctor’s appointment on December 31st with a doctor who will tell me YES! you need surgery!  I’m sure his enthusiasm will be contagious.  I expect to have surgery sometime in January 2009. In the meantime, I have a dear little wrist brace that disallows me from typing, from communicating, from being a visible presence on this website.


This could not have come at a worst time.  When I was a child, I was sick every Christmas.  Actually, even as an adult I was sick every Christmas.  Recently, I’ve managed to escape the Christmas curse.  It caught up with me.  The curse has found me again and is standing on my neck with all its weight.

Please bear with me because I know my posts will be erratic.

But know I love you all my dear readers.  I’ll keep you posted as I can.  In the meantime, please stay safe from your storms and enjoy your holidays.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hannakuh, Happy Kwansua, or whatever holiday you enjoy this beautiful season.

All my best to you, Auburn

  1. Auburn,
    I’m so sorry. This stinks!

    Though you can’t write, maybe you’ll have more time to read. All the Carol Shield books are just fabulous. And you must look for Lorrie Moore, too. Birds in America, and Self-Help are great reads. I think you’ll like them both.

    Take care.
