Good Evening Everyone!
I hope you are all looking forward to a fun
and relaxing weekend. I'm sorry to report that
I'm a little stressed. I guess I have good and
bad news. The MRI's that I had last week showed
that the swelling in my wrist is not a a tumor or a cyst
involving the ulnar nerve. That is the good news. The bad
news is that I have a torn ligament in my right wrist.
So, they gave me a steroid shot and put my hand and
arm in a brace for five weeks. The Doctor
would have preferred a cast, but I chose the brace.
If it does not heal, then I will probably have to have
surgery. The tingling in my fingers may be coming from
degeneration in a cervical disk. I'll be seeing
a spine specialist in about a month. Hopefully, all
they will do is steroid injections and physical
I'm having a hard time stitching and working on the
computer and am getting a little concerned about
all the work I have to do. My Cinnamon Stick
design this year is another stocking and, of course, it
is for Avery. Well, I had to send it off to be stitched
because I cannot get it finished with this bum hand.
So upsetting on several levels.
I want you to see a little of the stocking in case some
of you out there are looking for a stocking design
for a special little one. Here is a little glimpse
and a very reduced rough graph, but maybe you can
get an idea.
There will also be a "Bed Post" sack or "Door Hanging"
sack for a special gift from Santa. I cannot wait to
fill up both of these for little Avery.
Take care. Talk to you soon!
Many Happy Stitches,
