The Show and the Thumb!

The Show!!!

I've not written here since before my Reception/Trunk Show at Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts this past Sunday.  It was a wonderful show - with lots of fun, friends, festivity, and more!  Sales were excellent for the day - for me AND for other artists of our co-op!  I think everyone who attended enjoyed our gallery and also got some of their holiday shopping done!  Some I know gifted themselves, and that's OKAY!!!

While I did take some photos beforehand of the displays, unfortunately once the event began I was just to busy to take additional ones.  Photos with friends might have been nice!  But here are the display photos.

The THUMB!!!!

UGH!!!! Here is the latest! I visited my orthopedic surgeon yesterday to find out the issue with my trigger thumb that's developed AFTER carpal tunnel surgery! It seems to be one of the post-surgical risks - now they tell me! He explained the causes, the options, and I agreed to a cortisone shot in the most painful area. It HURT!!!! But it wasn't the excruciating pain I've heard about from others.

I slept NOT!!!!! There was/is some pain from the injection site and the thumb is still triggering! I am on TWO weeks of no knitting or crocheting, and we'll see what happens. I deliberately waited until after my show to meet with the doc, because I was afraid he'd restrict me sooner (he would have!).

I'm to see him in 6 weeks for re-evaluation. Surgery would be his only other option - so he says. I'll give it the 2 weeks' rest and hope for the best.
