class update and other things

if you haven't heard yet i had to make the agonizing decision to postpone this wednesdays class at pickle and the may 30th class at stamping bella. {sniff} no alternate dates have been set yet because i dont know when i'll be out of the cast and dont know if any therapy will be required before i can color again. at best, i'm thinking august.

next up, i have removed my cbox because since i have posted my accident i have had to delete at least 2 or 3 spam messages in there every day! like what's with that! here i am, physically and emotionally fragile and the spammers are on me! so i've replaced the cbox with a link under my profile if you want to email me....no spam please or i might have to remove that too!

finally, i'll give you a wrist update. i had surgery on friday to reset the wrist and they put in a screw to keep it set. because of the location of the screw it may have to be removed at a later date if it causes me problems because it is very close to the skin. not even thinking about that now though! the surgery went well and he said it went right back into place easily...whew! that is good news. aside from the break, my thumb has been quite numb and i asked about that...he said there was no nerve damage so that should go away in time.

the cast i have now is tempory and VERY heavy! i am sure the sucker weights at least three pounds which will be a good excuse when i get weighed in at WW on tuesday. paulabella is coming over tomorrow with a key lime pie and we are gonna smoke ribs again...i am pretty darn sure by tuesday the cast will weigh 4lbs!

here is a pic of my giant club arm. next week they will take it off to remove the stiches and fit me with something a bit more sleek. i'm hoping it will be pink!


aside from the obvious challenges of having your primary arm bundled in a cast the most difficult thing has been keeping my hair all perfectly straight and sleek! okay, it is more than difficult, it is impossible to do on my own so last wednesday i decided to let it dry au natural. this is actually a GOOD picture because when hubby came home from work the first thing out of his mouth was

"what happened to your hair?"


we have since worked out a process where he handles the brush and blow dryer and i use my good arm to manipulate the hair onto the brush...when he tried to do it all himself we discovered that vidal sassoon he is not!

well, this is about all the one handed typing i can handle today. i'm gonna finish my coffee, put a brisket on the smoker and spend another day elevating the broken wing.

Sending you SMILES and get well wishes Linda! I'm a huge fan of yours that rarely takes time to comment. (shame on me!) Take it easy and know that we'll be here when you get back to coloring again! Hugs! Pam :)

I am glad the surgery went well and pray you heal quickly. Key Lime Pie sound fabulous.

So glad your operation was successful and I do hope whatever pain you're having now will soon dissipate. Maybe while you are recuperating you can plan how you might scrapbook the whole incident. I don't scrapbook but I think if I had a major event like yours, I might give it a try:) BTW, your beautiful smile makes up for any perfect hairdo. Take care!

Thinking of you, Linda, and sending more and more get well wishes! Thanks for the update!

Linda you poor thing! BUT you will have a blast with Paula!! Your hair looked good - hubby probably doesn't like change; mine complains when I straighten mine!!

Pinky said...

Glad to hear that all went well and that you are on the mend. Perhaps when Linda comes to visit she will customize your cast with some pink and a dash of glamour dust!
Curly or straight hair, you are always gorgeous! Hugs, Pinky

Gasp! I'm so sorry! I hope everything heals quickly! (And if your huband gives you a hard time, you could always threaten to hit him with that club.)

Monica said...

I am glad that your surgery went well. Hope your recovery is smooth. Take it easy. I do miss your beautiful creations. BTW...i think you and Mark are doing a great job with your hair ;-).

Krista said...

OH, I feel so bad for you! Glad your surgery went well! I will miss your card posts (and your classes 'sniff') but the most important thing is for that wrist to get better!!!! Take care!

Yep, can totally relate on everything! My DH doesn't like my hair straight and kept wanting to curl it...Uh, NO, then he wanted to die it. BIG NO! DD's friend died it for me. And after about 5 weeks I can sort of handle the curling iron so there is hope. Mine still hurts. If it's any consulation, they told me taking screws out is not a big deal...but they told me lots of other lies so not sure I believe them. Hey, at least you can walk! And I am sort of able to color a little with copics. Although NOT very well and to detailed. You will find bold stamps are your friend for left handed stamping. It can be done. Sponging was very hard and cutting out things was impossible. I was able to use the cutter without much pain. Good luck and enjoy the ribs!
