I am so blessed. I have received so many wonderful emails and blog wishes from so many of you. Believe me it helps with not being able to craft. Typing is a bit of a challenge, but it is also good therapy. I went to the doctor yesterday. He removed the huge bandage and I came home with two bandaids. LOL... An hour and a half surgery for 2 bandaids. Can you beat that! Anyway he said the sugery went well and asked if I had any numbness because that was a major concern since the areas were so close to the nerves. I can honestly say that God answered your prayers because I have no numbness anywhere. I am able to make a fist, albeit not a tight one but at least a fist which is some thing I couldn't do before the surgery. I couldn't even hold a small cup of coffee and sometimes not even a piece of paper. They told me I could type a little but not a whole lot as I don't want Capel Tunnel before this heals. LOL... I have not had pain meds since the first day. I hate those things and I am so thankful that the pain is tolerable without them. I promise I am being good and not using my hand except how they told me to use it and I am doing my therapy everyday eventhough it hurts something fierce. Hey, I forgot I can even move my thumb. I hadn't been able to do that for about a year now. Isn't God so good to me? Thank you all so much for your prayers, emails and good wishes. They certainly help to pass the long days. I go next Wednesday to have the sutures removed.
