Happy Memorial Day & Surgery

Happy Memorial Day! While we will be having a cookout tomorrow it won't be without a trip to the cemetery. I want to make sure my son understands all of the sacrifices that have been made on our behalves.

Well, it looks like surgery is in my future. I'm scheduled to get my right hand operated on in a little less then two weeks. We are trying cortisone shots in the left hand before surgery. I had the shots a week ago and so far, I wish I had skipped them as my left wrist and hand hurts worse now. I miss my blog hopping and the time I was spending on the computer but my hands bother me a lot less if I abstain. I did manage to make my rounds to my SBS2 favorites today but will be good and give my hands a rest for the rest of the weekend.

A Quick Update

Just a quick update to say I'm still here, just not very crafty lately. I have been having problems with my hands and wrists for some time and finally gave in and saw a doctor about them who sent me to an orthopedic specialist. Long story short, I have arthritis (which I suspected), carpal tunnel, and to add insult to injury, tendinitis in both wrists. I had a EMG on Monday (what a strange test...reminded me of the feeling putting your tongue on a 9V battery produced as a kid) I go back to the ortho guy on Friday and will see what comes next.
