Tomorrow I have a six month four vessel (I forget the name of the actual test) to check the stint in the vessel of my neck. As no news is good news, I suspect I'm fine and this will justify my getting off the plavix. But, again, that is up to the doctor.
I am having, literally, pains in the neck. To be precise, soreness in the neck/shoulder area where I haven't had it yet. Believe it or not, this is good news. It means the nerve is tracking through that area and I will get feeling back before movement. It is in an area I am not able to move my arm past at this time but feeling in the other areas, soreness, pain, etc. preceded movement. I'm so happy I could cry. I know I will be moving my arm fully by the end of the year. Hopefully I will be moving it by my birthday.
Work, as always, goes slow but it goes. back at it makes me feel much more normal. I got horrid flea bites last Wednesday at my sewing lesson but I think I learned enough that I'm not going back until the problem is indeed taken care of or the weather is freezing, whichever comes first. I'm too advanced for the simple sewing class that this is but I did get several pattern alteration questions answered. It was what I thought but, since I tend to take the wrong things literally, I thought it best to check.
Today I tackle another pattern. I have sewn very little since getting back into the saddle but I'm catching up on the patterns so I'll be ahead once late August rolls around. That will be exactly 6 months until Connooga and I think it will be a good time to start gearing up. Of course I have three little elves that will help me until my heart's content with preparation, but I won't really feel healed until I tackle something challenging alone, like a mandarin jacket in brocade. Just stamp glutton for punishment on my forehead.
All's well here otherwise. Keep cool!
