having been taking it very easy on the arm, I found myself doing that "Do I really need to do this? Maybe some anti-inflammatory and not push it?" Which lasted until I tried doing something. Yes, I'm going to have to do this.
No, I am not fond of the idea of having my sweet body violated with sharp implements; who is? Know what bothers me more, long-term view? The disruption and(lesser count) inconvenience. Daughter's taking a day off work to drive me to and from. Parent is coming up to stay a couple of days 'to help out'(probably in collusion with daughter to keep me from doing anything for that time. Considering past history, probably a good idea), which means their driving up and staying instead of being comfortable at home. Me being on one-arm-only for 1-2 weeks, plus the general pain & suffering.
This better be worth it.
