On Saturday I received this most delightful flower in the mail from dear sweet Susan (no blog) from New Hope PA. Susan and I have been friends for ages and she sent me this to help me heal! Isn't it sweet? You stand it in a spool of thread and use the top for pins. Thank you so much Susan - I love it and can't wait to use it.
An update on the bandage situation! This is the latest designer model - I can move my fingers and hey I can type with two hands - for a while anyway! I think the next step is a Mepore dressing until the stitches are out and probably for a short while after too. Do you want to see the 'gruesome' pictures too?
And ... why wouldn't I rest up? I wanted the bathroom window open; would I wait until Ken was ready to open it? Oh no - I climbed on a stool, grabbed the latch and pulled with my left hand (I normally have to use two - it's a skylight window); the window opened but as I got down off the stool I felt something in my back give ... ouch now I have back pain too! Will I ever learn?
I went to the library yesterday and came home laden with books to see me through this week but maybe - just maybe - I could try a stitch or two? Mmmn we shall see!
Thanks for visiting
