141 days ......
141 days ago I broke and crushed my upper arm and shoulder so bad I had no use of my left arm.
A bad and very unfortunate fall made me break my left upper arm, crush the shoulder joint, tear muscles and tendons.
It was up in the air if I ever could be able to sew and knit again, and it was up in the air if I ever could drive a car again.
(Just so you know, it was the surgeon's words, not my own "pessimism" as someone tried to tell me the day after my surgery)
After a big surgery and a lot of rehabilitation workout and physiotherapy I am on the road to recovery, even if my arm will never be back to its old normal. I might need to have more surgery, but not right now.
I know that all people wants all the best for their friends,
but I found it hard to share here until I again was able to do some sewing and again able to drive for shorter distances.
Thanks to a very stubborn attitude, I was able to start doing stitchery after only a couple of weeks after my surgery.
In the beginning it was like 5 stitches a day, and it took me an hour, and now I can do more.
I am sure you can relate to the feeling of joy when I found that I could move my fingers and had some left hand grip. It was like birthday, Christmas and everything good at the same time.
This huge stitchery project above, Stitch Therapy 365, by Helen Stubbings, has been my lifeline and daily joy.
As soon as I found I could move my fingers I called Kathrines Quilte Stue and placed an order for the panel.
I though I could do it, come rain or shine, if only a few stitches a day.
I have missed writing - see you soon!
