I'm BAAAAAAAACK! At least a little--don't know if I'll be back to blogging regularly yet though. Typing mostly lefthanded is slow work.
As you probably know from Gran's updates, surgery went really well, and I'm ready to get back to normal--except my right arm won't let me. And I'm pretty bored. I'm surprised at how much I CAN do, but every now and then, I slam up against something I unexpectedly CAN'T do--like wash my left armpit. Who knew? I guess I need some kind of bath brush. Stuff like that will take a little getting used to.
The doc prescribed Vicodin, and it's working pretty well, but I get kind of sleepy. And really? I just can't sleep all of the time. I wish I could take my heavy-duty Motrin, but it's on the list of things I can't take for a couple weeks. Tylenol is okay though--maybe I'll give it a try.
I've been doing a little reading--I've STARTED about three books, but they're all slow to start, so they just aren't keeping my attention focused. I feel like I keep reading the same thing over and over--and with the Vicodin? Maybe I a.m.
I'm glad I pre-cut some fabric though. I've been able to sew some strips today off and on. Here's a photo:
You can kind of see my baggie of ice there on the table too. After surgery, they told me to put ice on my arm; only problem is that the wrapping of the splint is too thick for the cold to penetrate. Maybe they just wanted to give me something to do? I figured I can at least get a little baggie of ice across my fingers and the base of the fingers, although I don't really know if it helps or not. But again--it gives me something to do, I suppose.
Another thing I did was to order a second jelly roll of Make Life by Sweetwater--I'm thinking a braid quilt would be simple enough, and I can enlist Hubby's assistance in doing the little bit of cutting that will be needed.
I think I'm probably going to go crazy before I can use this hand again. It's probably a short trip.
