So remember how I tripped on my printer cord? Well, it is almost two weeks since I tripped and my hand still hurts like a son of a gun. Since it is my jewelry hand and my production has definitely slowed down, I finally decided to get it checked out. Apparently a cat scan is the best choice, but since I am not up for paying $1000, we went with the x-ray. The doctor is pretty sure a bone is broken in my hand… (thank goodness for dragon dictation!) So I am now in a splint with my thumb immobilized! See above pic… couldn’t get the whole image of my arm, but it goes to my elbow.
So I am crumbling inside thinking I have a ton of jewelry shows scheduled, money invested… how am I going to make jewelry!!! After about an hour of fretting… (yes, really fretting!) I decided to try to make something!
Can you imagine my relief! Okay, it took me twice as long and it was a bit awkward, but I am so thankful that i can still create!
Whew, what a relief! Creating is my therapy and I might need to be medicated if I can’t create!
Strangely, my hand feels a sense of relief being immobilized, yet seems to hurt a little more! Weird, I know!
I am just so gol’ darn thankful that I can still create!
Looking forward to the Women’s Showcase this weekend in St. Cloud! Hope to see you there!
