Did you all think I had vanished from the face of the earth? Well, I did... sort of! Somehow, I managed to tear the rotator cuff in my right shoulder (my dominant side of course!) and apparently I did it a while ago. From my reading I've learned that joints will form bone spurs to try and repair/replace/protect an injury. So in addition to the TWO tears in the rotator cuff, I had a significant bone spur in the joint. All of this damage was repaired successfully on May 13th.
Since then, it's truly been a challenge! My right arm is attached to my torso via a sling/brace, so that the repairs can completely heal before I start using that shoulder again. My right hand is fine, but its range of motion is extremely limited. But I've learned that if I put the keyboard in my lap, I can type, and here we are!
Pursuing my art is a bit more challenging! I'm sure I look pretty funny knitting with the needles working somewhere off to the side of my left hip! Yesterday, and the day before, I have been working on a new doll named Gail. What typically would take about a day is now entering its third day! But it's getting done and I am busy, which are both good things!
Thanks for staying with me during this quiet time. I promise as time goes on that things will get back to normal!
