Dear blog friends,
This will be a hard blog post for me to write. Not just because of the subject matter itself, but also due to the fact that I can only use my left hand and I am naturally right handed.
Well I will do my best. What happened is this: last Saturday I fell down the entire staircase. With the result of breaking my right arm in 2 places - the wrist and the elbow.
I was admitted to hospital and received treatment. My arm had to be operated upon and a plate and pins inserted. The wound is fastened with over 20 metal staples and my arm to be kept immobile.
I was allowed to leave hospital on Wednesday.
Next week I will receive a plaster cast. There is still a lot of swelling. My right side of the body took the impact so there is a lot of bruising still.
My partner has taken over my care.
For me it means lots of rest and coping with the pain.
I'm pretty much devastated that this has happened now, but of course there is never a good time. I was so full of new ideas and projects. I only started a new crochet shawl the day before my accident.
I know that it was only right to tell you about it, so you would understand that the next weeks will be very different. I cannot use my right hand.
Thank you all for your support - sorry if I cannot acknowledge each comment individually.
