Still Healing

Thursday, December 01, 2011

My wrist is still healing. I have better use of my fingers and thumb so with using them more it explains the "different" pain I feel now. Like my favorite scripture says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".

I am still in a cast, Dec 20th will be 6 weeks and 3 days since I broke it. I am praying that the cast comes off on the 20th. It would be nice to have total use of the arm and hand before Christmas. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing and up-dating us on how things are coming along, here's hoping the cast comes off on the 20th of December. Now that would be a great Christmas present, having the cast off and the total use of your hand & arm. You sure have a caring and loving husband, what a blessing he is to you. I'm thrilled you are eating more fruits and veggies, good job. emoticon emoticon My prayers are with you as always, I'm standing with you cheering you on your journey. Thanks again for joining Shining for Jesus Team, we are thrilled to have you on-board, God Bless! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and prayers.

    I have been eating more fruits and veggies since I broke my arm. Partly because I am in transition to Vegetarian and partly because I just need to open the fridge and take something out when DH is not home. He has been so good to me through this and chops up veggies & opens cans for me when I am up to cooking and peels my oranges and grapefruits for me in the morning before he leaves for the day. I am very thankful he is in my life.

    I read your previous blog and see you broke your left wrist (That's the one I broke, too, several years back). I know you are SO ready to be out of that cast and get that arm strong again! Those 6 weeks in a cast seemed to drag by. The 20th will be here before you know it!

    Eat as many greens as possible. It helps in the healing process.

    May your prayers be answered swiftly.

    I have had 4 hand surgeries (due to work stress) and even though I am right handed, it is surprising how many things we take for granted need both hands.

    Hope your healing continues on schedule.

    I have had a few close calls when falling, landing on my hands and/or back, but never broke anything from falling.

    So far I have only broken a toe when walking around in the dark and got my toes around a door and broke the 2nd toe. (Note to self: Dont walk around in the dark barefoot!!!)

    Hope you get it off before Christmas. I am 60 and have never broke anything yet. I THANK THE LORD FOR THAT ! My parents died from lung cancer from smoking at 45 and 46 and my brother is 55 and on oxygen and has lung cancer. THANK YOU FOR QUITING ! emoticon
