Surgery Tomorrow

Monday, May 14, 2012

I am going to be out of action for a while. Tomorrow morning, I have surgery on my right hand (yes - I'm right handed) to replace a bone that is rubbing against the one at the base of my thumb.
The surgery is at a hospital about 3 hours from home, so I will stay there until the following week. Then they are going to check things out and put the cast on my hand and forearm. Luckily, my sister and brother-in-law live there so I will stay with them. It will be nice to see them, and to do some visiting with mutual friends and family while I'm there.
Also, since she is left handed, she will teach me how to do things from the "other side" while I'm there!!! LOL
I won't be doing any biking out on the paths, but plan t0 ride the stationary bike and do a lot of walking while my hand is in the cast and recovering.
This will be my 3rd orthopedic surgery in 3 years due to arthritis, prior injuries, etc. Enough is enough, already!!!!!!!!!!
