Freedom & Rose Coloured Glasses

I have been set free!  The yucky splint was carted off to the garbage can.  :)  I have two wings again.... sort of.  Here's how it went down.

Last night I had a hard time sleeping.  I was giddy with the excitement of hopefully getting back to putting my house in order, scrapping, knitting, walking the pups solo and driving.  I must see things through rose coloured glasses.

Like when I thought that I would likely only be in the splint for a couple of days.  Susan googled the topic and let me know that it would be weeks.  So in my mind, I figured that I'd be fine once I got the splint off.  Maybe just a bit of stiffness and not a full range of motion.  Am I delusional?  I think I just may be.  I have clearly never truly hurt muscles in my body before this.  These things take time.  Who knew?

The sling stays on for a week to 10 days.  When I asked the doctor if the elbow would come out again , he said, "It shouldn't."  I was really hoping for a guarantee.  Delusional... I think so.  ;)  Physiotherapy starts on Wednesday.  Not much movement going on with this arm yet.  And I'm left to ponder which book I should read next as there won't be any scrapping going on around here.  The big guy is still on domestic duty for a time.  He was very brave and didn't cry.  But... the good news is, I can get fully wet  in the shower now.  Goodbye plastic showering glove and Saran wrap.

Wishing you all a creative day with some scrappy time.



  1. wish you well, Jen here's hoping after physio that it's all healed!

  2. Best wishes coming to you for further recovery from me too!

  3. I am so glad the splint is off...and will be thinking of you when I spend my day in my craft room tomorrow.
