Why I Have Been Gone For A While...

To anyone following my blog you may have noticed I haven't been posting as much as I normally do.  Well last week I slipped on the ice and ended up in the emergency room at the local hospital.  I ended up with a compound fracture to my left wrist.  The bone on the right side of my wrist broke and pierced though the skin on the left side of my wrist.  I had surgery that night after sitting in the ER for 6 hours.  They inserted a Y shaped plate with 8 screws to put the bone back in place.  Because the bone had broke through the skin I sayed overnight for several rounds of antibiotics, so I won't end up with an infection.  They put it in a splint and because of the plate & screws holding everything in place I don't need a cast.  I started rehab yesterday and am wearing a soft brace.  You would think you would just be able to go about your business, but the fingers and wrist just don't want to cooporate.  It is really painful to move them, so I am hoping I will be back in the swing of things soon.  I really miss making cards.  Kelly has generously given me time off from the Dutch Dare Design Team, but I still checkout all the cards submitted and comment on the wonderful entries.  I hope I will be posting cards and entering challenges real soon.
Until then....
