I e had a very nice long walk. How are you? You might be asleep now. Did you have class today?
So, yes, I am having surgery on my arm and wrist on December 2nd. It is my right one and I’m right handed. I am going to be off work from the 2nd until the 29th. It is from using it a lot for many things over time. I have two spots that are compressing my ulnar nerve, and also carpal tunnel. Maybe better for you to look those up than me explain. It will be fine though! I think it will feel much better after it heals!
Hi Lorie, i am sure you will recover much faster after the surgery because you are a strong women from Portland. And we will have more time here!you are on leave, wow! I love you Lorie. You will definitely get a good surgeon Lorie. What about the tattoos on your hand? Will the surgery diminish the beauty of the whole ocean on your pretty arms?are you tensed? Dont worry.. I am sending you a whole lot of positive energy. I am sure you will be more powerful and strong after the surgery.
Today starts my one month off! Yay! I’ve met my Surgeon a couple of times already and I really like her. We connected well the first time we met and I trust her. She is unusually extroverted and warm and those aren’t typical qualities in a Surgeon. I don’t have tattoos on my hands though. They are all where you cannot see them if I wear long sleeves. The incision for my elbow will be on the inner side so won’t affect my tattoo there, and also on my wrist on the inner side so it won’t be over them there either. I’m a little nervous but not too much. Mostly I don’t want to throw up after as that has always happened when I have anesthesia and I hate it.
I think you are working today? Hope you are doing well Joe!
Hi Lorie,I am glad you met the surgeon.and don't be tensed Lorie.you won't feel the pain! You will be alright and I really miss you.and you know what?you are more stronger than you think and after the surgery,your hands could perform even harder tasks.you could easily take down a man of your size!wow powerful Lorie.strong women!
Sending you positive vibes on your way!love you
Joe, look what I found for you!
It is taller than me! A squirrel! Maybe a Chipmunk?
Wow!Lorie thats cute as you.this will make my day!love you so much!!I hope you will have a great day today.are you stressed?when is the surgery?don't worry,everything will be alright.i really look forward to hear from you after the surgery.sending prayers all your way.i love you.You are a strong women Lorie.
Isn’t that funny? The house across the street from me has small children and put that up. The kids love it, the little girl goes and hugs him and it’s really sweet. He really is taller than me too.
Joe I really appreciate the well wishes. That is very kind and thoughtful. Yes, I’m a little stressed but mostly about throwing up after. That happens from the anesthesia. I habe to be there at 1pm. Will try to write this evening, even if only a little, but I may not feel so good. Will let you know I’m ok though. Will be typing with left hand so you will have to forgive the mistakes!
Hii Lorie!where are you now?i hope everything went well.well,let me think of forgiving you ..show up!
Think about forgiving me? Ok, please do! Except what did I do this time? Is it. My bad left hand typing Joe? I’m not sleeping but should be. Arm still numb I think. I’m ok though, I wrote when I got back in other place. Is the picture you posted where you live Jow? Looks like Some Christmas decorations are up!
Hi Lorie!yes i forgive you..yes Lorie,thats my street where i live.Westmount.yes.the lights on the top are Christmas decorations.Did you like the picture?was the surgery painful?can you show me the excalibur on your hand?you will be alright in no time Lorie.you are a powerful women and nothing could stop you.Guess what is tomorrow's special??i need treat by the way.
