The Childrens Bible

Blog readers, I have a ganglion cyst on my wrist and it hurts. A lot. Mike and I did a google search on how to treat such a cyst and found a youtube video a guy made of his wife smashing his with a big book and it immediately went away. All I could think in the hours after watching was should I or shouldn’t I let Mike bash my wrist with a big book. How bad would it hurt? How mad would I subconsciously be at Mike after the smashing? I mean I know I asked him to do it, but admittedly, I get mad at him all the time for things that aren’t his fault. Like that time he dream cheated on me and I didn’t talk to him for a whole day.

Last night it was hurting especially bad after an engagement shoot and I concluded that a momentary smack from a book would be better then it hurting all night and into the day. I asked Mike if he would please hit me as hard as he could. (Readers, it could have been my imagination, but I feel like his eyes shined a little brighter and there was a spring in his step as he went to fetch the big ol’ children’s Bible.) I stuck out my hand, buried my face in my pillow and Thwack!!! Oh there were some swears, and tears, and more swears. And the cyst is still there. But the good news? I still love Mike. Does anyone out there know how to deal with a ganglion cyst that does not include smashing it with a children’s Bible?

Speaking of loving, here is a peak at the photos I did last week of Cheryl’s lovely family at Wheeler Farm. They are such a gorgeous family, right??

    Hopefully it went away on its own, but here is the medical treatment for Ganglion Cyst
    •Aspiration usually includes placing a needle into the cyst, drawing the liquid material out, injecting a steroid compound (which acts as an anti-inflammatory agent), and then splinting the wrist to keep it from moving.
