Grimy but sexy; Martin’s in recovery ….

Hi, friends and readers:

As soon as I saw this photo I knew I had to put it up for you guys to enjoy. I think it’s pretty humorous, but also very sexy. Was he mud wrestling somebody? Those wet boxer briefs don’t do much to conceal our friend’s equipment,  do they? Yummy ….

Well, I’m in recovery, and no, that doesn’t mean I’m in the AA program. Yesterday I returned to my orthopedist’s office for my second visit of the week. Monday he’d injected my left hand with a collagen-busting substance. It hurt like hell and was still hurting yesterday.

Yesterday morning, around 10:30, his assistant physician walked into the room I occupied carrying two substantial syringes full of anesthetic. She proceeded to inject my left hand in multiple places to “numb it up” while I gritted my teeth and squirmed in my chair. God, it hurt.

Here’s another shot of our muddy friend, this time playing basketball. He doesn’t seem to like wearing much clothing, does he? Does anyone know who he is?

On with my misery … After my hand was numbed up, my doctor proceeded to bend all my fingers back and forth, and very soon I could hear a crunching noise coming from inside my hand. Right away my two fingers that were starting to curl up snapped back into place. Amazing.

Now I have a bruised and very sore left hand. At night I have to wear a “splint” on the hand to keep my fingers in place until they settle into their new home. This whole thing was a pain in the ass (and in my hand), but it was well worth it. Thanks, doctor. 🙂

It’a pretty day outside. I spent 2-1/2 hours writing fresh material this morning for my new novel-in-progress, and after I complete this post I will take a three-mile walk, here on the island. Have a nice Thursday, friends.
