Post-surgery has left me with a lot of time on my hand(s)—pardon the pun.
No saws, no sanders, no wood—I’ve been watching a lot of movies, backed-up TV shows on the DVR, On Demand shows~you name it. I’m restless and bored—when I’m not foggy/dopey headed on those danged pain meds.
I –WAS– so excited to go get my stitches out—until the 1st one got snipped & pulled. There are a LOT of nerves in your fingers—I had 7 more to go.
I have “new” pain to deal with. First- it took a little while for the stitches removal pain to settle down. 2nd- my finger is now uncovered. It’s HYPER sensitive to EVERYthing. NOT bumping it is near impossible, which takes my breath away and nearly makes me cry. The thick, crusty scabs are rubbing/falling off and skin is peeling off too -IT -IS -RAW under there.
My finger is very swollen (almost the size of my thumb at first) and I can just barely bend it—but I’m working on that (therapy). The swelling is already wAy down in this picture.
*I’ve also discovered that I need to learn a new way of typing. Right now, Left hand—normal typing, Right hand—peck. Looks ridiculous. When healed, I’ll never again be able to bend my pinkie properly for normal typing.
Okay~I’ve only ever pushed one other show on you—
That was in Jan/Feb 2012– when it seemed like I was totally alone in my excitement over the premier of Season 2! And I shared this fun quiz! ~I didn’t hear anyone talking about the incredible first season. . . huh??
that was SO incredibly good, inspirational, and profound (IMO)—
If you have opportunity and/or can make the time (2:15), I would love to hear your take-away. Maybe like me, you’ll be dreaming about taking that long walk too!
