28 days

No, not the movie.  Sorry to disappoint.

It has been 28 days since I lost feeling on the inner portion of my right thumb.  It is being treated now as “developing carpal tunnel syndrome”.  I wear wrist braces and take Narpelan.  And still, no one can tell me if the feeling will ever return.  But hopefully, it will and in another 28 days, everything will be more or less back to normal.
