Guitar Hero tennis elbow. It's TRUE!

I wanted to tell you all before I forgot.....I finally got the Cortizone (spelling?) shot in my left elbow today that has been bothering me so bad since we got the game Guitar Hero, as I know I have probably complained to you all about a thousand times.

When I told the doctor that is what I think caused it since it's in my left (and non-dominant) elbow - he yelled out to the nurse "got another Guitar Hero one in here!" Apparently it's becoming quite the epidemic....so be careful when playing these new fangled games! I had to get the shot, which I had heard horror stories about before hand about how bad they hurt... but it didn't hurt at all and I honestly feel like a new person! I can lift things and open doors with my left hand .... things I haven't been able to do in about 2 months! Except I am supposed to wear two arm braces (one for my elbow and one for my wrist) and I have to have 6 weeks of occupational therapy 2-3 times per week (ugh!!)


I think I should write a letter to the makers saying there should be a warning of the potential bodily damage the game can cause! :) Heheeee!!!! Funny, but I feel (as quoted by Paula Abdul) one million percent...better!
Night!!!
