Wow, I am impressed! I accidentally stepped on a fallen crabapple in our driveway and as it started to roll under my foot it threw me off balance and I fell sideways onto my extended right hand and knee. So much for my walk! Julie ushered me back into the house to dress my wounds.
It was extremely painful trying to wash my hand but I managed as best I could. My arthritic blend for my knees was handy so I massaged it into my hand and wrist and then Julie applied a bandaid to cover the broken skin on my wrist and also one on my knee, putting a drop of lavender on each one first. My hand was already swollen. Now I was ready to apply the ice pack.
I couldn’t put any pressure on my wrist and was thinking I wouldn’t be able to do any pushups for at least two weeks. (I wasn’t too disappointed about that!) To my utter amazement within a half hour the pain and swelling were gone. It is now the next day and there is no bruising. I just tried out my countertop pushups and there is no problem putting pressure on my wrist. Want to know what was in that magical blend that helped me heal so quickly? It has also been working well for my arthritic knees.
