It’s Sunday night and I’m packing my suitcase. Can you believe this? Sometimes I wonder myself if I’ll ever stay a full month at home. Unfortunately its not for a vacation. We are heading for Colorado.
I have a couple of medical issues that I hope will be taken care of. First, on Tuesday I will see a specialist at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado for my foot. Because my foot hurts worse now than it did in June, I want to make sure I get a correct diagnosis. I am very anxious to get this done.
Then on Wednesday I am having surgery on my left hand (I’m left handed) for a couple of issues. You may remember if you’ve been reading my blogs that I had this done on my right hand back in January. This is going to be a little or maybe a LOT more difficult. How will I survive not using my left hand for a couple of months? Here are a few things that I worry about doing with only my right hand: (not in order of importance)
Writing and typing
Applying eyeliner, makeup and fixing my hair
Inserting contacts into my eyesdressing
cleaning the house (haha – just wanted to see if you were reading – I am not concerned about this at all)
So for a few weeks I see this happening:
I will lose weight.
24 hr. ponytail
I will learn to dictate or else do a video blog
Wearing my ugly glasses and therefore no one can see my eyeliner anyway
sweats and more sweats
Hey this could be a Plus after all!!
Actually I am hoping when this hand is all done, I will have super powers:
Knowing that I will be one-armed for a while, I got a few more wheelbarrow loads out of the corrals and then this looked very inviting:
So I did some reading and looked at the views:
Sorry, but that was one of my views, too.
I think the cats are trying to tell me they don’t want to be barn cats for the next 5 days.
I will do my best to keep the blogs coming because my ‘guest bloggers’ have failed to show up.
Even by having these surgeries I am moving forward……..one step at a time.
