out of the cast.......


 Here's how my hand looks out  of the cast........and a close-up if you click on it.  still very swollen, and the exercises are KILLERS!  Below is my new splint, which I can thankfully is removable for showers and the hot tub.  I thought I would be stamping really soon, but I guess not. Boo-Hoo!
I am missing taking part in the daily challenges, but I got far enough ahead in my stamp company obligations that you will see what I scheduled until I am able to start again.  Hope to see you all soon!

Anne, this may be the second time you get this as I'm not sure the first one posted. I'm sure your hand is causing you lots of pain. Hang in there and be a good girl. Take care as long as it takes to get healed properly. YOu will get those fingers inky in no time. Duh! I got on my blog to quick click to your blog from the RN team list and I hadn't added you to my list. Ugh! I am such an idiot. You are there now. Hugs!

Hope the pain subsides and the exercises get easier. Also the swelling reduces - pretty rough when all you want to do is stamp!

You take care of yourself. I know the OT is a real killer, but it will get better. I am glad you can take the splint off and glad you were able to get a red one.
