What Happened?

Seriously.  How can it be almost the end of May?  I was shoveling snow February 13 and broke my distal radius.  A three-hour plus operation on February 18 fixed it with a place, screws, and internal pins.  For almost 90 days John has done everything from shoe-tying to meal prep and cleanup.

Staying in place?  Absolutely.  But it's been all about the wrist, not about Covid-19.  I've done some minor sewing, thanks to a machine with a knee-lift and automatic scissors.  Mostly I've been sad because I haven't been able to sew.  I missed QuiltCon in  Austin and was very sulky about that.  Because I couldn't sew, I avoided FB and Instagram and quilt magazines.

Now?  I will resume PT as soon as I heal from last week's surgery to remove the pins.  For the first time in three months I can type with 2 hands.  I am seeing a light at the end of this odd tunnel.  And - best progress of all - I have a list of things I want to say.  Maybe I'll try for an entry a day...  Wow, this is the most chipper I've been in 3 months!

Glad you're feeling better. Your entry caught my eye because Feb. 13 is my birthday. :)
