Brother Tobias has bursitis, or student's elbow to you and me. It's the academic version of housemaid's knee. I don't know what I did to bring this on; it certainly wasn't time spent blogging.
One elbow is swollen, as if it has been bitten by a snake. Having a pregnant elbow is extremely painful. It makes me decidedly anti natal and relieved to have been born a bloke.
According to the valetudinarian's guide, bursitis can last for many months. Oh, goody. It affects my book-holding arm, but fortunately not my glass-holding one, so I can still take the amber medication, praise be.
