Checking In...

It has been a while since I have posted anything here.  My last post was right before I underwent surgery to decompress the radial nerve in my dominant hand.  As of today, there is still swelling of the nerve and I continue to have a lot of pain.  I am trying not to let it dominate my life, so in between bouts of muscle spasms I continue to live. I can cook one day and suffer with pain for two or three days after.  I can drive around town running errands in the morning, then again down for the rest of the day with pain.  I can type or write in short bursts then must stop.  I have actually perfected the art of watching TV and reading, which is achieved without pain, as long as I hold the remote or book with my right hand.  I do try to create little pieces of art at least a couple of hours a week, just have to do it in short bursts.  Anyway,  I will be posting an ATC Card that I made, took me two weeks to complete.  I signed up to trade with a lady in Michigan and can not wait to get her card so I can post pictures.
