Technically I did not find a cure for Raynaud’s but I certainly had an great week of being Raynaud’s free this past week. The temps were perfect the heat was divine and I was so relaxed. My hands were feeling the benefits of being away from the bitter Maine cold even for a week and I got to enjoy the use of my hands for 7 days.
We are home now with temps barely reaching single digits and instantly my hands are purple and sore again. Unfortuantely we still have a few months left of this winter weather. The good news is that the “artic blast” should be ending soon but the low temps are here to stay. Since we have been home I have been covering my hands with gloves and heat packs but even with all that today my hands felt the brunt of the cold and they ended up bothering me most of the day.
I spent the entire day with my nephew and had a wonderful time. He does not understand that auntie’s hands hurt and he is go, go, go with lots of playing and picking up. I was careful when holding him and we played a lot on the floor. I feel more comfortable with well working hands but I won’t give up a moment with that little boy especially over some soreness. He takes the sting out of any situation for me. I don’t like not seeing him for a week or longer but that is life and when I do see him we need to reaquant only because he doesn’t exactly remember just yet. He knows that he can trust me he just doesn’t dig all my kissing and hugging first thing. Both of which he will get use to over time and hopefully enjoy. If not then I’ll settle for him getting use to it!!
