Update . . .

Hi Everyone,

Sure am missing blogdom! Not sure when I'll be able to get back to working on the computer. After seeing my regular doctor, then a chiropractor, and still continuing to worsen I ended up seeing a neurologist. Apparently I have some compression in a couple of discs in my neck that's pinching a nerve. I haven't had full feeling in my right arm/hand for a couple of weeks now and use of my right arm and hand is very limited at the moment. A week ago the neurologist injected cortisone directly into the nerve in my neck (that was fun) to get the swelling and inflammation down. I don't want to be a whiny baby, but let me tell you... the pain in my neck and shoulder caused by that inflamed nerve has at times just about took my breath away. The neurologist put me on more meds than I care to be on, and I'm to start physical therapy next week. I can tell I'm making a little progress day by day but it's not as fast as I hoped it would be. At the moment it's really painful to do any activity with my right hand so I'm feeling really disconnected from my normal activities by not being able to use my computer.

Thank you to everyone who's stopped by and left such sweet and thoughtful comments. I'm so sorry I can't respond to you right now, but I can't wait to come visit and catch up as soon as I'm able. Much love to all of you... I've missed enjoying all of the beautiful creative art you make and the interesting little anecdotes about your corner of the world. I'm doing my exercises faithfully... will be back as soon as I can!
