I'm back!!!!

Oh my goodness. What a crazy 8 weeks it has been. I got through my carpal tunnel surgery well. The surgeon told me that I really needed it done, there was quite a bit of damage in there once he was able to see it.

I did everything I was supposed to do, listened to the doctor and finally ended going to physical therapy for 5 days in order to get my wrists up to par in order to get my behind back to work! The scars have healed very well. I have exercises that I do daily that continue to improve the mobility in my wrists. After 2 days of typing at work I am a bit sore but I know that it will get better with time. At least I don't have that awful pain and tingling I had prior to the surgery. That makes it all worth it and since I had both done at the same time it is over with!

I have really enjoyed today as the weather was really beautiful outside. Sunny skies and a high of about 80 or so. There was snow on the roads the last day I worked before my surgery so I will take all of the sunshine and warm temps I can get! I love having the windows open day and night. The fresh country air is so clean and it just smells so good. That might sound weird to you but I love it. It reminds me of when I was a kid sleeping with the windows open, attic fan going and the country breeze blowing in my windows. Good memories.

I hope to download a bunch of pictures of my pups and get them on here soon. I still am taking things slowly (as far as typing) since I do so much at work. I hope everyone is doing well!

I'm glad things went well. Surgery, no matter what you have done, is never any fun.

Glad you're back.

I'm thrilled that your surgery was a success, and that recovery is going well!!! I suspect that following the recovery regimen is as important as finding a skilled surgeon.

Spring has been toying with us here in central Virginia. Cold, wintry & windy one day and sunny, warm & bright the next. My sinuses are in an uproar. It's all good, though, and the flowers & blossoming trees have no complaints.
