Hi All,, Why I have not posted

Hi I just wanted to let you know that we made it back home August the 28 and on Sat30 I sprained my left wrist bad so I wasn't able to use my left hand at all and was hard for me to do anything right handed due to pain in my right thumb. On Oct.30 I re hurt my left wrist really bad again so hubby took me to ER they took x-rays of my left wrist no broken bones just a bad sprain and said I had 3 cyst's in the wrist joint that was due to the sprain along with arthritis. The ER Doc said I would have to wear a splint for 6 to 12 weeks. So up till Oct 23 I couldn't use my left hand at all till that Thurs, night when I popped my wrist back in place. As of Oct 23 I can bend my wrist some but with my hand being in a splint all that time and before the splint not being able to move anything on left hand it all made the joints so stiff, so I'm working my left fingers and wrist now each day. Bad thing is when I wake up in the morning I have to start all over making fingers move without as much pain. It will be slow going till my hand gets stronger. I can't wait to get back to looming and crocheting, its driving me nuts not being able to do anything but I know it takes time and I don't need to rush it or re hurt my hand again. I guess I will have to go have the Doc remove all 5 cyst's that I have now counting the one on my right thumb due to the burning and pain I have in them when I move my hand.
Thanks Wanda
