Back to Work

Sunday, April 08, 2012

My hand is healing nicely. I am suppose to be off work at least 6 weeks, but I'm going back to work tomorrow. I made a big promise to the doctor, that I wouldn't lift anymore than 3# and I will stick to that commitment--but it seems like some of the help at work is worse off than me. At least I didn't get pneumonia!
It is just amazing how much you rely on both of your hands. I cannot manage zippers yet, so I'm still in sweatpants. I have managed to get my shoes tied, though.
Don't take anything for granted.
And oh yes, I loved those 19 days off work. Now to get back into that routine--yuk!

    Take care not to hurt your hand, but I know how nice it will be to get back to a more normal routine! Hugs!

    Take good care of that hand at work. As hard as it is to
think about going back to work, it may go better than
you think. Hope your Easter was a wonderful day. HUGS!

    Good luck with the return to work. Two years ago I broke my right thumb and had to have surgery. I was out of work 6 weeks and went back sooner than my doc wanted. I was not allowed to use my fingers to type. My left hand ended up hurting more than my right. Good luck.
