OOPS

I broke my arm two days ago - April 27 and will have surgery today (29th). bad break, Horizontal break below ball at the shoulder and vertical break of ball - dominant hand of course. Getting metal plate and lots of screws. The neuropathy in my feet and hands from chemo makes items just fall from my hands and I stumble a lot. Kind of suspected this day might come after so many stumbles plus I walk 5 miles a day. 

I did finish the batik quilt and as soon as I can get it photographed, I will post it. Hopefully with the metal plate holding the shifting bones in place, I will heal quickly.

I also want to thank Diane for sharing her really wonderful quilt. What a creative design. And isn't it wonderful that we can "meet" such nice people though our blogs.

I'll be back soon.

  1. Sorry about your accident. But I realize that you are very brave and optimistic. I had fractures of the wrist and I know how hard it is. Take care of yourself, do not force your hand. I wish you good health.
    PS. Did you do a test for osteoporosis?
    I found some useful links here, I follow them, they seem very good:

    1. Thanks Carmina. I did have a test and my bones are very sound. today (day 5 after surgery) I am off Oxycodone. The shoulder is a bit sore but the INTENSE pain of the boned bones has passed. I hate drugs.
      I am so thankful for all my friends who surrounded ma and helped me.

  3. Hope your recovery is smooth and you can spend the recovery time as well as possible. My husband had shoulder surgery due to a fall when our kids were small. It was a frustrating time for him because he could not drive or move his arm for 7 weeks. All the things we take for granted become a challenge. Thinking of you.
