Typing skills are back up to par - or, at the least, close, so I figured it was time for a blog entry!!!
The hand is healing relatively well. I did have to go back on another antibiotic today. Nothing to panic about, just being cautious as the edges of the wound are a bit redder then they should be and the wound is stilling draining 'serous' fluid.
Once it started to drain the swelling quickly came down and I have been back to almost full use since Monday.
I had hoped stitches would be out soon, but looks like, because it is in a area that gets alot of 'movement' they will have to be in for a while longer.
On Sunday I ran an eight dog team on a 20 mile run. I wore the brace that the doctors gave me but it caused more discomfort then running dogs did. The next day I wrapped my hand/wrist with 2 tensor bandages and that worked really well. I took 10 dogs with Jan's handler, Simone as a passenger and had a really nice run.
Today things were back to 'normal' with Mark and I each taking 10 dogs on a really nice 47 mile run.
Tomorrow we are giving the dogs a day off, which will allow us to work on a bunch of other stuff that must be done before we leave Muzzy's Place on Sunday!!
Here are a few pictures from Monday's run -
One of Simone's pictures from the sled!
This is a bit blurry, but I wanted to share as this is the simple corner that kicked my butt a little over a week ago (but coming the other direction). Right behind the first tree visible on the right is a bunch of broken branches and some blood!!
Pictures from today's run -
Climbing Jenny M hill.
Crossing one of 'the ponds' (I don't believe they have names, everyone just refers to them as 'The Ponds")
Happy Trails again!!!!!
