(back) Subject: Re: Tendinitis From: "r" <basset3@hvc.rr.com> Date: Mon, 28 Apr 2003 17:19:10 -0400   Dear Dr. Zimmerman: I tried to learn a Toccata in too short a time prior to Easter, practiced too long with tensed right hand, and now have a running pain in the tendon that runs through the right wrist ball which is sore and painful. I tried not practicing, ice pack, Motrin but it won't go away. Since you = mentioned tendonitis in your response to the frozen shoulder post, I thought I'd solicit your advice as well for this problem. It won't stop hurting, and any playing makes it worse. Playing an octave chord is a killer because the extended thumb sets it off. Help please! Thanks, Robert Clooney

(cutups, nicking etc.) the Organ is a typical Organ for 1881, It has 8' Open 8'stopped 12 pipes 8' melodia tc 8' Dulciana tc 4' Octave 2' Fifteenth 16' Bourdon in pedal Pedal is tubular pneu THe rest above is Tracker(Slider & Pallet ) the add ons are 8'Vox Humana and soon to be 8' Stopped Flute 73 pipes these are on Electric action   the nicking on the Tracker action would be I would say average for that era, and the Blower is a Casavant blower with a century motor, 50 years = old       Just wondering why when I added a secondary resevoir why the motor kept going to its strart up mode and reg going flat after inflating and so = on, I quickly unhooked it and went back to the reg allready hooked up that = has no problems with startup I would think that a blower this size would be capable of blowing up another resevoir with no problem as it had in a previous organ     Danielwh 2000 EP biggs Fellow

There = is no reason why this should be the end of the instrument. It is merely a matter of shelling out something around $5,000 (or perhaps less for a reconditioned one) on a new electric blower. And don't forget the alternative -- an electronic replacement for your pipe organ is going to cost around $60,000.   John Speller    
(back) Subject: Frozen shoulders, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, arthritis, etc. From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Mon, 28 Apr 2003 20:31:03 -0500   I think you all have had some excellent advice from doctors, so here is advice from an attorney.   I'd never heard of frozen shoulder, so found the discussion fascinating. I always had questions about the exact nature of carpal tunnel, and the explanations were enlightening.   I do, however, have severe arthritis, and furthermore as you know because of all my work on the "farm" I'm prone to self-injury - fence posts, briars, rose bushes, farm equipment, animals and ants attack me at will (yes, and my hair turns blonde from stress). Just last Friday the car and I ended up in a ditch on the dirt road leaving my house because the hill was slick and it was pouring rain. Although I missed the trees, did not wreck the SUV, and got myself out, I had pulled my right shoulder, and was in severe pain the rest of the day. So here are some things I've done to keep myself going when these incidents occur:   (1) Talked to my doctor first.   (2) Took Osteo-Biflex with Calcium, C & E, along with Vioxx every day.   (3) Did exercises to limber up the affected region and try to prevent stiffening of the joints.   (4) As a last resort, took hydrocodone at night when desperate.   And the greatest and the most expensive:   (5) Installed a Kohler whirlpool bath in the master bath. I can train the jets on whatever is giving me trouble - heels, ankles, hips, knees, neck, shoulder, lower back. I have a tub big enough for three people, but it is worth every dime I spent. I've not had time off from work to get the plumber in to fix the drain on my shower, so have been doing a whirlpool bath before getting ready for work every morning for the last three weeks or so. And it is amazing how much better range of motion I have with less pain. It takes surprisingly about the same amount of time as a shower if I time the morning chores right. You've never had a bubble bath until you've had one in a whirlpool tub!   This is not a commercial, but I was improved enough to do Saturday chores, and able to drive to Chipley Sunday to see and play a pipe organ I've wanted to see a long time but was never able to get into (the previous organist kept it locked up). The incumbent organist invited me up to First United Methodist Church to see an Opus 1 (1976) by Pendarvis of Atlanta, 2 manuals, and I don't think over 20 ranks. While not spectacular, it had some interesting sounds, and is the only pipe organ in Washington County.   Has anyone ever heard of this builder, and has the company built anything else?   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Sandra doesn't like to enter the chancel before the congregation is allowed up by the servers.   My analysis: liturgically speaking, the servers or ushers have nothing to = do with when the congregation is allowed up. Usually there is some kind of invitation from the celebrant in the rite. This is normative, and as soon as it has been issued, *someone* in the congregation *should* respond. Somone has to go first, and if it makes sense for these to be musicians, what's the problem?   The ushers should control who goes up and when simply in the name of orderliness, to prevent the inconvenience of standing in line. A few old fogies like me would hasten to add, the *irreverence* of standing in line: when the Blessed Sacrament is moving and you aren't, you should ideally be on your knees rather than your feet (or your seat). This little scruple seems very obscure nowadays; not even S. Clement's, by and large, observes it, where the long lines up the aisle can be quite a mess. But I never = say die and prefer to genuflect rather than stand still for more than a few seconds. Also, no choir of mine sits during the administration of Communion: they stand while singing because this is the best posture for doing their job (as recognized and directed by _Ritual Notes_); otherwise they should kneel at least until the ablutions.
