You know how you have to sling-up (tightly) and go prone? My left elbow is mush, swollen and painful – and it feels like the “kneecap” (if an elbow had one) is loose. So shooting the Match would have been a bust anyhow since I can’t go onto my elbows. Maybe I need to take the pistolero stuff more seriously now, instead of the riflery? Still it would be good to finally make Expert, but not this weekend.
I need to remember to be (more) careful in the shower when I turn around – those narrow walls and bony elbows don’t mix – tile is unforgiving. That’s the only thing I can think of lately/recently that I might have impacted. I do remember wincing in pain not too long ago, but it’s the usual stuff, just turning to get the shaving cream, or soap and WHANG!… Damn.
Because there is a risk of infection putting a needle in to drain the bursa, the Doc said to wait it out. Ice and Ibuprofen.
