That Hooker Left Me With Something I Didn't Want!

Just a quick post...
So, almost two weeks ago was the Lilly Boulders trip and what I didn't mention in my trip report post was that I thought I might have tweaked my ring finger on my left hand while I was pushing hard to send Hooker. I've had a few sessions since then...one at Big Eastatoee Wall, one DWS session on Lake Jocassee, a fun trip up to Granite City where I almost repeated Moonshine Still V4/5, and a sweaty trip up to the Bearfields...and each session seemed to make the finger hurt more and more. Its now hurting to the point that I can barely get my wedding ring on without a little pain, and it is the same pain I had when I popped a tendon in the pinky right beside it last August on Hades V3. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to admit that I'm sick or injured until I really have to shut it down, and i was hoping it wouldn't get to this, but it looks like I'm gonna have to take a few weeks off to let this thing heal up a little before the summer road trips really start up. Once again, we have reserved a cabin up near Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia, about an hour north of Boone, for the July 4th break. We had such a great time up there last year and we're super psyched to be able to take Lily with us this time:) Then later in July, I'm planning another trip up to Grayson and Boone and maybe over into Tennessee if the weather looks good. Until then, keep a look out for upcoming reviews of a few Flashed Pads and a big review of 8-10 brushes!
