I was biking like normally do everyday, I love cycling. And wiped out when my tire went off a black top road near our home.I fell onto the road and ended up eating the road and breaking the fall with my left hand. Had a scratched up bruised face, swollen lip, skinned bruised knee, bruised ankle, concussion ( my ears still are ringing, all day every day) and my wrist was fractured.
Thought I could shake it off and in no time I be healed up. But for a week I did nothing but veg on couch. And after that I still could not walk much or do to much because of my knee and dizziness & fatigued easy. And the very next day after I got hurt our home AC went out, in the middle of the hottest part of the year. Go figure. And since then the refrigerator tried to go out, we got it fixed. Now dryer is going out. So needless to say sure the last few months has been not good. But guess it could have been worse. Getting use of my hand and wrist back, been slow going. When I first started using it again I would drop stuff and very painful. Having to work to regain the muscle and the flexibility and coordination. And it still hurts when I over do it, sleep with a soft splint on. Its frustrating sometimes when I cant do certain things I want to. Made 3 cards the other day in a row and it was killing me after that. Had a hard time using a snap tool to set a snap. I had to end up just glue it on...lol It was the first time I really crafted since all this happened.
Crazy as it sounds I have missed biking so much, am active person not one to sit around and do nothing. Always joke when you see me in bed or laying around all day I am really really sick. Took about three weeks to get my energy back. After about a month I did start going for long walks, so have been taken up walking instead of biking....lol Hoping I get full use of my wrist back so I can maybe bike again. But as of right now I cant put pressure on that wrist.
Anyway so that is where I have been I did not forgot about my blog and will be posting some Christmas stuff soon. I wanted to share a quick easy card I did for Thanksgiving. And now that I can craft again, look forward to sharing some Christmas cards and ideas. But for now please have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for stopping in my blog.
