Still Out Of Commission! An Update

It's been exactly two weeks today since I fell, resulting in 8 stitches in my hand. I thought I'd be back to work by now but that is not the case. Last Friday, I had surgery on my hand to check for and fix possible nerve damage caused by the glass that cut through me. So now my right hand is wrapped up like a mummy in about 10lbs. of guaze, cotton, and a stint! As you can see from the photo above, I'm not able to do much of anything! I have been keeping it rested on my pillow there that I made from vintage 1950's fabric awhile back. Some of you may remember that post.
I have learned that I can type fairly well and fast with my left hand. After the Thanksgiving break I will attempt to return to my blogging schedule. I have really missed it. And with time to peruse the internet more than ever I have found some fun things to share. In the meantime, I have been very active on twitter and you can chat with me there @BobbinBombshell.
I have also marked down several items in my two Etsy shops. I won't be able to list new items for awhile so take advantage of this Holiday sale while I recover!
25% off ALL items in my retro-inspired handmade shop; The Sparkling Cocktail.
20% off my vintage collection (except sewing patterns) in my shop; Femme Fatale Vintage.
These sales last through January 3rd! Happy Holidays!!

Wow - that's such an awful situation. I'm so sorry you're having such troubles and wish you a speedy recovery!!!

The whole event sounds painful. :( I learned to type one-handed when my second child had very rough colic. Kinda freeing, don't ya think? Silver linings, right.

I'm shocked your gauze is pristine and white. Mine would have been attacked with marker before I'd even been discharged from the hospital. ;)

Wow. Sorry about the busted hand. My daughter broke both her thumbs the night before Halloween a few years go. I had to dress her as a mummy. She's all better now and here's to your speedy recovery as well.

Bummer about your arm! It looks painful. Hope it gets better soon!
