Thank you for my beautiful flowers!

A heart-felt Thank You for my beautiful flowers which I received today!

The latest news from the Dr is intense physio and stitches come out next Thursday. Recovery period will be between 12 and 18 months but they cannot guarantee full use of some of my fingers. But....being the person I am, I will prove them wrong...even if it takes 2 years:cheesy:.

In the meanwhile, I have found that I can type with my right thumb (looks ridiculous, but works)...in Afrikaans this is called "boer maak 'n plan".

So once again, to the following well-wishers who made my day with the lovely flowers, Thank You!:angel:

Thats the Spirit! You go Girrl!! I am going in for a small op tomorrow morning that I believe is also just because the doctors don't know what a powerful thing the mind can be!

 

All the best on a speedy recovery!

Strongs for tomorrow....will be thinking of you.

I'm also seeing a hand specialist tomorrow as there seems to be a "slight" problem. Not going to let it get me down!:colbert:

I was at the specialist today and the outside wound has healed beautifully. The stitches are out although it seems it could have stayed another day or two. I have a protective bandage over the cut until Monday when I see my sexy Dr again :blush:. Now it's to concentrate on the healing inside. I also have an infection of the tissue which seems to have caused the tips of the fingers to triple in size, and also have a fungus infection on the outside of the middle finger...on the tip! The skin seems to be "peeling" and has yellow blisters on which is obviously sore and restricts movement making exercise a bit difficult,

I am able to use my right hand (my Dr called me supergirl today) although there is still no feeling from the knuckles to the tips, but I have devised a way to type, use a pen and a toothbrush:bigsmile:

Having no feeling makes it a bit difficult but no bridge to too big right now! Picking up small things, like a paper clip is still impossible, but I've set myself goals and am actually reaching them faster than I thought.

I have a wonderful lady who calls me regularly, sends me bbm's and motivates me, and with her and Uncle T's help and support, how can I not make progress:angel:

As I said previously, it's a slight problem but at least today the Dr was more positive than 10 days ago. Now it's more of "time will tell".

My flowers are still beautiful and I get the utmost pleasure walking through my dining room where they are on display....

Nice to hear you staying positive! When my other half nearly cut his arm off, he also had challenges on the way with the healing process. It happened in May and he's now starting to get sensation back (albeit only when he's in contact with extreme hot or cold) and a pretty extensive range of movement, which shows that the 18 month prognosis is just a somewhat negative guideline!

Just a word of caution (I know you'll be careful but Nico thought he was being careful too...): watch out for heat - any sort. N burnt his fingers really badly (they were black when the huge blisters popped) with a heat pad designed to help with circulation - it was frightening, he had to visit a burn specialist. The lack of sensation is the scary part when you handle hot or sharp things!

Good luck - am sure you'll be right in no time!

A huge Thank You, David and Rose (alloway65) for my surprise envelope today. I am definitely going to use the finger rollers in my exercise programme. I'll even be showing my Dr and Physiotherapist and I will keep you posted on my progress!

Once again, thank you for this lovely gesture....I really do appreciate it!

Kindest regards
