SEE! Toldja! I got my stitches out this morning and what a relief!! It stung a little with a couple of them, but was virtually painless. Then I soaked them with vitamin e oil (hense the sheen from the pic) and am hoping they soften up quickly. It still feels a little stiff and tight, but overall I'm almost 50% back to normal as far as range of motion and use goes. I know I could do more with it, but I'm still favoring it (and trying hard not to) Doc sez I should use it and resume regular activities (but avoid anything with force). Back to work in 2 weeks though - darnit! :)
Anyhoo - just to force myself back to using it, (our car is a standard) I'm heading to the dog park with Crayzee May cuz she's driving me bazurk! She's got a serious case of cabin fever and broke her rope outside. Also - she's been tearing through the house like a 120lb rocket powered bull-dozer!! Scorching heat and humidity be damned!! Poochie is going to the park! lol
Oh and dont' tell anyone, but...I managed to whip up a half crochet cocoon and a hat in the last 2 nights! WHEEEEE!
Ok - that's all for now :)
