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 :)
