In my last blog, I mentioned how I needed to stop my intense gripping of the toothbrush and other tools. By last night, I had overworked my arm so much that my arm swelled from my elbow to my fingers and the pain was unbearable.

The hospital is a close walk from my hotel and I would have gone if I hadn't called my dad first. He advised me to take so much ibuprofen and put heat and ice on it. Over the course of the day, the swelling went down and I could work some, but I had to take it easy because the pain would still flare up. However, I do have bad circulation and the change in altitude may not have helped.

So note to non-paleontologists: Being eager is great, but watch your pace and grip or you will be in pain.
