Terri said...

Oh I'm so very sorry.... take care and rest your hand! Praying for you and the doctors who care for you.

Sorry to hear you took such a drastic fall and have to have surgery!! It's hard to find things to be grateful for under those circumstances but Thanks Heavens for Dr's and medical advances that make something like this a short-term problem rather than long-term disability.
Thank You for all the fabulous creations you've given us in 2008, they are greatly appreciated.

ouch! poor you! I had tendonitis in my dominant hand once - so bad I couldn't eat or anything! I hope your surgery goes well and you are soon doing much better.

Oh, and the blog word today is maniessu - I think it wants you to get a manicure to pamper yourself. :)

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I'm sorry to hear what you are going through. My son had to have a finger pinned back together this past summer - right next to the one he had pinned 7 or 8 years ago. The first few days won't be any fun. Take care of yourself and let everyone else take care of you while you recover.

Holy smokes woman! Next time, don't wear the stilettos - LOL. I truly hope and pray the surgery goes well and that you recuperate quickly.

Oh, so sorry to hear about your wrist, etc! Hope it heals very soon!

Sorry to hear about your wrist. Do exactly what they tell you to do, which will most likely mean to stay off the computer and forget about designing for awhile. Making sure it heals right is a lot more important than anything else. Will keep you in my prayers that everything goes well.
