I'm still here and improving daily!
As you can see, I'm finally sporting a new purple cast!
There were no long goodbyes, when I got to dump this
blasted splint! LOL!!
Little did I realize that after a month in it, I would hardly be able to straighten my elbow though. The muscle tone was gone and it took a few days before things started to work.
Here's one of those eeeewwwww... photos!
That creepy yellow skin. LOL!!
But the up side is, the hand is once again aligned with the arm!
A pin is thru the bones where the purple mark is.
Only 1, heck I thought there were 2.
It gets pulled and the cast comes off in 2 weeks!
Happy dance! Happy dance!
When I was talking with the Dr, I mentioned that my arm
was much skinnier.
If it was only a matter of some splints for a month,
could she do my thighs???
I guess when your faced with zillions of dollars in student loans from medical school, your humor goes out the window!
She was not entertained, and said it was muscle loss.
All that went thru my head, was my mother asking if I
could ever keep my mouth shut! LOL!!
Now, we all know the answer to that don't we!
tee hee hee
I was about sick to death of sitting around. It's something I have never done. I'm usually running in 10 different directions at once,
and this was starting to take a mental toll on me.
My friend Deb remembered a quilt I had started long ago...
The blocks were pieced and all the parts were cut already.
It was that "eureka" moment I needed this past weekend.
I'm happy to report that I've been stitching away ever since!
I don't know about you, but I go somewhere in my head when I sew. It's just so peaceful and wonderful! It felt incredible, to be back there again!
I do hope you've all been enjoying the "Island Batik" blog hop.
Just as we are winding up, this wonderful box arrived
on my doorstep.
Island Batik has big plans for us!
I'd like to finish this long winded post thanking all those who have emailed to see how I was doing. It met the world to me!
Too all those friends and neighbors who dropped everything to take me to Dr appts, shopping, quilt days, lunch, more shopping...Those that jumped in and finished projects for the blog hops I had committed to.
I am truly blessed to have all of you in my life.
Know that your friendship and caring mean the world to me!
