Feel better. What Happened?

Margo said...

just pain in my left thumb. right hand dominant. getting worse as i typed. limited my quilting, then could not open door..wring a cloth..typing painful. had my left trapezium removed and rebuilt with tendons. apparently there were lots of bone chips from bone being on bone.

Oh, Margo, the pants part is a real blessing. I remember having a problem with a finger and that was just the hardest thing! We take so much for granted. I hope the four weeks goes by quickly, and maybe even it's less time than that.
