No sewing for 6 weeks

Its a sad day....I fell and broke my wrist Thursday.  An ambulance ride to the ER and the  orthopedic doctor yesterday and now I am scheduled for surgery on Monday.  I could show you some gruesome pictures of my break before temp cast was put on, and the xrays of the broken bones - yes more than one - but I don't think anyone wants to see that, including me.  Doc said I will be in a cast with pins sticking out of my hand and arm for at least 6 weeks.  First there were tears, then acceptance and then thankfulness for a doctor that I have confidence in to  fix this; for pain medication; a caring husband, family and friends AND most of all, that my sweet 2 year old grandson was not hurt when I tripped over him. And thank you God for these blessings and for His comfort to get through this trial.

 I have always heard be careful what you wish for.  Of course I didn't wish for a broken wrist, but I did say I wished I had three or four weeks to work thru my EQ8 lesson book that arrived on Wednesday.  I can't sew one handed, but I can operate my mouse and type with one hand :)

Oh no. Take this time to do other things. I'll bet you can iron and operate a sewing machine. Sending recovery hugs.

Ouch! Hope you heal quickly. Enjoy learning EQ8. It's tons of fun and should keep your mind off not actually being able to sew. Just think of all the wonderful future quilts you'll be designing -- and once you're all healed, you can actually create them. Hehehe. ;o)
