Peeking in ...


I don't have any stitching to show you ... not because I've lost my stitching mojo ... this time it's because I've lost the use of my right hand.  6 years ago I had an health issue arise that was thought to be MS or a small stroke.  After tests and tests and tests nothing was confirmed so the course of action was to do nothing unless my symptoms presented themselves.  6 years pasted with nothing until July 3rd ... I woke up and my entire right side was numb and has remained that way ... more tests and again nothing definitive.  We are now waiting for a MS expert to review my mri's to see what he thinks.

I've been trying to stitch left handed ... pretty slow but doable.  I've also ordered a lap frame with a clamp that I'm hoping will help too .... I'm really missing my needle and thread!

I'm really trying to keep a positive attitude through all this ... visiting your blogs helps a lot!!  I don't comment in your blogs because typing is very hard and exhasuting but know I am loving seeing what ever one is working on.

I hope to be back to stitching and blogging real soon.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for my husband ...

I'm sorry to hear it. It's hard to be on the cutting edge of medicine (that's what I call it when the doctors don't quite know what is up). Hope they catch up to you quickly. Peace.

Oh, no! How frightening that must have been to wake to. Sending positive thoughts for clear, treatable, positive results. You deserve a great big atta girl for stitching left handed - but I'm not surprised! Let DH, family, and friends help you out - save your energy for stitching :-).

Jeanne said...

I'm so sorry Michelle...I hope this gets better soon and they figure it out what they do to treat it.

It is so hard to stitch with your left-hand, I am a real clutz with mine. It's great you are finding some ways around this.

Jennifer said...

I seldom post but do read your blog regularly. Try to hang tough while you wait for your answers. If you can't, sometimes a good cry is very helpful too. Will be hoping the best possible outcome for you.
