Pointing to the spot

The purple arrow indicates where I got the cortisone jab that will hopefully alleviate the pain in my thumb joint that occurs when I do much handsewing or writing. The other spot is where the cannula was inserted. Quite a bruise building up there.

There is another arrow on this hand, but the dressing hides it. I am supposed to keep this hand elevated so I am typing with only one hand. I had both general and local anasthesia. The local hasn't worn off yet, so there is no pain. No feeling in the finger tip either.
