Temporary Absence

I have a pinched nerve in my neck and my thumb and two fingers are frozen numb. I am much better today, but this has been a week of utter excruciating pain. It started late Saturday and by late Sunday afternoon I could not stand it anymore so I went to the local clinic and they prescribed an anti inflammatory. It may have been doing it's job, but the pain was still there. Wednesday morning I went to see my doctor and she knew right away that it was a pinched nerve. Prescribed a muscle relaxant and something for the nerve. I went for x-rays, but don't know the results yet. She also told me I should go for physio therapy. I had my first session of physio yesterday and whatever they did has helped a lot.

I'm right handed, so naturally that would be the one effected. I tried several times during this week to use the computer, but as soon as I touched the mouse I screamed in pain. Needless to say there is no stitching.

Since I felt better today I thought I would give it a try, but right now my fingers are saying that's enough.

Hope to be back soon.

What is up with this weather ? Yesterday was one of the nicest days we have had in a long time. Sunny and Hot, today RAIN ! How am I do get out of this funk if the weather does not co-operate.

I've been trying to write a post here for 20 minutes and I'm not getting the look I want. Y'all know this is a LHN design and it was stitched with CC Belle Soie, which was just a joy to stitch with. More tomorrow.
