So Sorry!

I am so sorry that I am not visiting any blogs,


checking any links at this week's Share Your Cup (what a poor hostess I make)


or responding to your sweet comments.


Several days ago I bumped my right hand (x-rays show that it isn't broken) and the pain is excruciating, my index finger knuckle is distorted, the drugs make loopy and I have absolutely no use of my dominant hand.


I hope I can see my hand doctor tomorrow (I'm going nuts not being able to be creative!) and that I'll be back blogging soon!


The pictures (Instagram pics this past week) obviously have nothing to do with the post, but this visual girl has to have pictures.

Eeek! I hope your hand feels better soon. You'll be mentally ready for a million creative projects by the time you're given the go-ahead.

Oh dear, such pain from a bump. Were you sky diving, ha ha. Probably just walking around, I imagine. I hope your hand is healed soon.

Sorry about your injury. And the worse of it is not being able to be creative I'm sure. Hope the Dr. has good news. Take care.

It's so hard to handle confinement of our hands in this technical world we live in. Relax and enjoy the down time if you can. No need to reply.

Oh Carol...I feel you pain!! I hit my hand on the corner of our wood dining room table a few weeks ago and thought I had broke my hand, but the doctor said I just bruised it deeply. It is feeling much better now and the ugly bruise is going away finally. Hope your pain goes away soon.
Hugs,
Cindy

Dang girl! Make sure that the hand guy knows how important it is to get full function back. Sometimes I think they think "older" people should be satisfied with less.

Kathy said...

Yikes!! I hope you have it resolved soon. I have been in that situation before and NOT fun!

Blondie's Journal said...

Please get a second opinion. You might remember I was told I sprained my arm back in June and then found it was fractured in three places. I needed to be in a cast yet I walked around for ten days wondering why I was in pain. I think that contributed to the long recovery and the pain I still have.

I'm sure you are getting lots of advice, Carol, but I am so angry about the long road I traveled to get to almost nowhere.
Feel better most of all.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning dear CAROL! We are all glad you did not break your hand, but the finger, why is it distorted? You bumped your hand? I've done that before, but it sounds awful! And that you can't be creative, that is double the pain! Please be well, get to see your hand doctor and I hope you will be back on the mend SOON! I missed you on Instagram this weekend!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

How dreadful!!! Hope the pain abates soon and that your doctor can figure out why the swelling is so severe. Take care of it, the treatment of an injury is the most important part of the healing. Hope you are back to making creations soon enough.

Debby said...

Ouch. I Hope the hand specialist can find out what is wrong. My mom is in constant pain in her hands. I know it took a long time for my last trigger finger surgery to heal. Feel better.

Patricia said...

Oh no! I'm in the same boat! I broke a metacarpal in my left hand last Monday. I think the split is worse then the break. I've had to take it off to carefully finish painting some Valentine hearts. Good luck! I feel your frustration.

Melanie said...

Oh, Carol...I am so sorry. You sure have had your share of medical problems lately. I feel so bad for you. I hope your hand dr. can figure out the problem and get you back on the right track to healing.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Carol,
I am so so sorry, I do hope you feel better soon and heal quickly.

Susan said...

Aargh. What a bummer. Long drug induced naps seem such a waste of time but sometimes it's the only thing you can do. Positive thoughts sent your way for everything to turn out well.

Suzanne Oldham said...

Goodness, that sounds painful! Like breaking a toe - it's this tiny little joint and yet the hurt fills the whole body. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Curtains in My Tree said...

OH I am so sorry I just hate when something like that happens to me to keep me from my daily routine of entertaining myself with blogs etc,
NOW don't rush using your hand and hurting it more. I mean it.

I sure hope your pain isn't so bad

Daphne Bryson said...

Good Evening Carol, Oh I am so sorry to hear that you have hurt yourself. Not only have you hurt yourself but you can't be your normal, creative self.
Don't think about the creativity, just get yourself well.... and imagine all the ideas which will be stored up, ready for you to share with everyone, when you are well again.... I can't wait.
With warmest wishes to you.
Daphne
