2013 so long!!

It's been a busy end of the year here.... I got both casts off and am going to Occupational therapy 3 times a week...its like a part time job...one with inflicted pain!!! OUCH my left hand doesn't remember how to do things like make a fist, grasp things, lift, or rotate...etc.  I hurts all the time-- my fingers are stiff and swollen much of the time...I don't think I will be able to return to my job for a very long time if EVER...the P.T. said it can take up to 6 months to get the hand working again! So I don't know... its an uncertain time in life for me...so I will make the best of it..



Getting ready to go upstate for the Holiday so we've been cooking again!! Yesterday my friend and I met for our celebration...it was held in margaritaville!  Ya! We ate drank and was merry...
I made some strawberry jam for gifting....



And Sis finished the room I had started when I had the fall...I took this photo after we had replaced some of the furnishings...when we get it all set up I'll take more..


I hope all of you are geared up for a big celebration..it was hot as could be today here...we put the AC on!! I'm very ready to move into 2014!!!




PEACE

  3. Oh wow, six months, that's wild! Glad you at least have both casts off, and can still throw back a margarita or two... That helps. The jam looks tasty and your room is really looking good... I hope things get better soon!

  4. WOW 6 months! But be patient and work the magic they make you do. The pain sucks but if that's what it take then go for it take and take a pill. I remember the PT on my knees. But I made it through. Of course your hands are so much needed. I wish you a
    Happy Holiday and a very Healthy New Year.

  5. Your room is looking great. The six months ... not so. Sigh. But this to shall pass but only with great patience. Patience is VERY hard to learn ... ask me.

  6. Oh six months is a long time. I know you will make the best of a yukky situation as you have been doing. And look forward to hearing your progress. I am so sorry for your pain (it sounds to me like agony!)..... Wishing you the best possible New Year. The room looks good. So does the jam (can't believe you were able to make that.)
