Rob’s been having some trouble at the winery with his hands. He’d been losing sensation in his fingertips, dropping things and dealing with general weakness. We were pretty sure it was carpal tunnel syndrome, so he was trying to put off going to the doctor until after harvest.Â A persistant tingling in two of his fingers added to everything else finally sent him in yesterday.
The doctor, a hand specialist, confirmed that it was carpal tunnel.Â But then he told Rob that the persistant tingling was a sign of nerves dying.Â He didn’t want to delay treatment, at all. So sometime next week, Rob is going in for surgery.Â He won’t be able to lift anything at all for two weeks with that hand. And then be on very light duty with it for months.
I’ll keep you posted.
