Dot's Hand Progress
Thursday, February 14, 2013
I want to wish you all a very Happy Valentines Day. Hope that you all can enjoy it fully.
Because I have been having a hard time to sleep I took my sleeping pill early last night and went to bed around 8:30 PM. I did finally fall asleep, but around midnight I woke up and went to the bathroom and went back to bed. At 4:00 am I was wide awake and so I got up and have been up ever since. At least I did get some good sleep.
My hand is still paining me but I think it is starting to lessen up. When I don't try to use it or move it, it is ok, but when I go to the bathroom I have to use my four fingers on that hand to pull my underwear up. You would be surprised to know how much you depend on your left hand for. Scott is helping me out really good. Sometimes I try to do a few small things that I think I can do. But when I do those stupid things I get more pain. I am trying not to be a bad girl but sometimes I am. I pay the price though.
My appointment with my foot doctor yesterday went fine. He took an x-ray of my foot to make sure that all the bones were still ok, and they were. I also had him cut my toenails on my right foot. I have to go back and see him in 3 months.
Our weather yesterday was beautiful. The temps were in the 40's, and the sun was shining. I rolled down my car window because it was so nice. Today is the same way. I think it is going to start and get colder again on Saturday I think. I hope that you are having good weather too.
I think that we were going to get some minor snow flurries during the weekend but no big storms.
I am praying that everyone is doing ok and those that aren't will get extra prayers. You are all such wonderful friends. I am very lucky to have you all. I do miss you all deeply. Hopefully I will be able to come back posting to the individual teams soon.
Best wishes to you.
