I have had 2 surgeries, spent 2 days in the hospital and now have metal plates and screws in my right hand. I was in so much pain that they were giving me morphine every hour and it didn’t make a difference in pain! After the second surgery, the pain became more manageable. I am now home but sleeping a lot because the pain meds make me sleepy. It is hard to do things with just my left hand but am getting better at some things like getting dressed. unfortunately, I am not able to post regularly because it seems to take 2 hands… sorry!
I am scheduled to have stitches removed on March 18th and then they will put me in a movable cast which, hopefully, will allow me to use my computer again. Then I start physical therapy.
THANK YOU to EVERYONE for the comments and emails wishing me well! I may not be able to respond but I read each and every one and I can’t tell you how much they lift my spirits!
I also want to say THANK YOU to my bestie and roommate, Jason for helping out by walking the dog all by himself and for helping me do some of the things I can’t do for myself! You never really realize how difficult it is to open some ramen noodles or those damn childproof medicine bottles until you try to do it one handed!!!
I’ll try to keep you guys updated on my progress. Thanks for everything!
I slipped on the ice from a storm we had the other night while walking the dog and broke my right wrist in several spots. I am right-handed and cannot do much! I had a CT scan today and need to have surgery to put a metal plate in to stabilize my wrist next week. I am typing this with one hand and it has taken me 10 minutes to type up to here!!!
I am sorry, but I probably won’t be able to post for a while… I probably won’t be able to respond to e-mails or comments either…
I WILL be back just as soon as I am able! Please stay tuned and accept my apologies!
Sorry for no posts lately. Some unexpected medical issues have come up for me and I have been making the rounds at various doctor’s offices.
I should post something soon!
Thank you for all the laughs!
Sorry that took longer than I expected it would. I needed to help a friend out who lives in the suburbs of Chicago, so I took Amtrak to the city… (well, I got a ride to Milwaukee and THEN took Amtrak into the City and then did the whole thing in reverse!) I got back Sunday, but have been sick (probably allergies since she has 2 cats) and REALLY could not get the strength to post until now. I apologize! It feels good to help friends though.
Here are a few pics to hold you over until Saturday!
Hope I didn’t miss too much!
