I made it ...

whew! shoulder surgery is absolutely no fun ... none whatsoever. and my luck being what it is, there were five problems that needed to be corrected ... a small tear in the rotator cuff was repaired, the bone at the top of my shoulder was deformed and had to be shaved down and some nasty arthritis junk cut out, the bone at the end of the shoulder had grown down over the shoulder joint and had to be cut off, the main tendon in the front of the shoulder was frayed and had to be debrided (sanded?), and finally, my inflamed bursa sac was removed. yowsa, huh? soooooooooooo ... i'm immobilized ... and it's driving me nuts ... this contraption is so confining ... but then my arm feels like it's going to literally fall off without it ... very frustrating.
it's going to be a long road, much longer than originally thought, back to my hooks and needles ... so i've turned to paper ... i'll show you some cards and projects soon ...

Great to see you back Teresa! It just doesn't sound like any fun at all, though. Are you back at work? Just by chance, I'm working on some paper things too, so I can't wait to see what you've come up with! Hope your recovery is smooth, and much quicker than you think.

Hey Teresa! We miss you! I miss you!
I will be so glad when you feel better, I know you will more than me. Love you!
