Forced downtime

I have to keep this short as I am typing with my left hand only. I have severe tendonitis in my right wrist and probably a rotator cuff tear in my right should from my accident back in May. I have been to A&E twice and the Doctor once. I’m on 4 hourly pain meds and anti-inflammatories. I can’t use a mouse, write, paint, use a knife, do up my bra…  Tony has been brilliant, despite some difficult moments. Most of the things I do to relax, such as write letters, paint, stitch, blog, etc, are impossible.

Mum died mid December and I had this whole ‘thing’ in my mind about how life would be from now on; how I would organise myself, what I would do with my time, and so on. Now I m having to rethink the rethink! I guess I need to see it as an opportunity, but I’m not sure what the opportunity is yet…

 

My hand all strapped up -the tape work on my thumb was painstakingly done by one of the nurses.
