My arm! Oh's my needle hand!
Hi...someone here might remember me. I fell and broke the daylights out of my right wrist and arm. It looks shredded (doc says comminuted). I also knocked the end off another bone Cast was put on after surgery May1st.

Haven't felt like myself yet. I feel like? I dunno. My hair is now about 70% grey, but was only about 50% grey before this mess. Thinking about replacing the hardwood floors with a thick foam.

Can't stitch. Might do.some framing. I need to see ortho because the cast is ccutting ,my arm and it has become loose. I will be back sometime soon

For the dog people on the chat, I got my dream dog and he lifts both ,my sprit and DH's.ii

Oh My, Hope you start to feel better and your wrist is healing, . I have spent so much time lately stitching, I cant imagine hurting myself and not being able to do it. I know what you mean about your hair. I have to do hair every 6 weeks.

So sad about your accident- hope your arm heals quickly! I have to leave my stitching for 6 weeks while back in Canada ( don't have the proper lighting etc) and that is frustrating enough! Tell us more about your new dog!

Su, Tex has been asking about you! Knew something was squirrelly when you didn't talk about her rose! Hope your wrist heals without complications--fell on my my left wrist years ago--dislocated all the wrist bones, the thumb, and sheared off the end of the arm bones...the casts were horrendous and seemed to stay on forever! Keep your shoulder moving as much as possible!!!!! I was a dope, nobody mentioned it, and my shoulder froze--therapy for the shoulder was worse than the wrist! :) Keep in touch! Typing "other-handed" has got to be a trial, but we can decipher most stuff...lots of practice. :)

Su Pitt, so good to finally hear from you. Although the news are not so good. I hope that you are on the road to recovery and will soon be stitching away again. I have problems when I walk out of the garage, there is a tiny step before the driveway. I don't know if it's the readers or my depth perception but I hold on to the side of the garage door now. It's annoying when I have to make several trips. People probably think that I'm drunk all the time but I no longer care. Wish I still could have a few! LOL My DH is hopeless as far as the computer is concerned now but I often wish that I had trained him to respond to the posts!!!!!!! I gave DD instructions to notify my correspondents when I die. Will she do it? I can't say. My GD is very responsible and will hopefully be old enough to take care of things. On the other hand do we really want them so involved in our lives? I know I don't.
Su feel better and VCESS is absolutely correct, we can figure it out!

Hi Sue Pitt! Of course we remember you! Wondering what happened to you, since you came on the "chat" fairly regularly.
Don't worry about the grey, just throw some dye on it and call it a day!! Don't worry about accurate spelling, we'll figure it out! Good to see you back!!!! :)

Oh my, that sounds painful. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery. Happy that you got your dream dog, I've had mine for four years now, she makes me laugh every day.

Chemo Brain wasn't bad enough. I had already been having arthritis issues with my right thumb and palm. Sometimes the pain went all the way up to my elbow. Spent the last two weeks in real agony. No stitching. Little keyboarding. VERY BORED!

Still feeling after effects of chemo. Thru with that but still having Herceptin infusions every three weeks.

I had already given up driving because I was afraid of falling asleep and having an accident so I cant go anywhere. I hit a parked car a couple of months ago -- think I fell asleep for a split second. Fortunately, the owner of the car was very nice about. Told me the damage to her vehicle was minimal and not to contact my insurance company. Unfortunately I did over $2000 to my own car. accident so I couldn't go anywhere.

SOME GOOD NEWS: My hair is starting to grow back. Most white. Too early to tell about texture -- right now it feels very soft and fluffy. Strange thing -- my eyelashes fell out about six weeks ago. Last week I noticed I don't have eyebrows.

You can have any kind of eyebrows you want! Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall (my fave), even Yosemite Sam! LOL
Take heart, Girl. I know its tough, but NOBODY cares about eyebrows! Show that beautiful soul of yours and you'll outshine the population! :)
