|Iris, Thank you. I know it's been a long time. I've been mostly in my FB groups, but recently not even there a lot. Life got insane about a yr ago. It started with Isaac, then Harley had a series of benign growths that had to be removed bc of their location (and tested bc Im paranoid), then we bought a home and FINALLY got out of the camper. That has been great. But, in. The middle of getting the land ready, I had a terribly violent surgery that led to a severely injured shoulder. I was stubborn and wouldn't go to the doc until we got the house (and I was in the office a week after we moved in), but by then (2 mo), I had a frozen shoulder. Then I had surgery March 18 bc I ripped that sucker to shreds: tearing my labrum, bicep, and rotator cuff. 8 weeks later, I woke up with my left hand in agonizing pain and completely unusable, and was diagnosed with CRPS (like I needed anymore letters) and Duyuptrens Disease. (Cosmic joke...right). At almost 20 weeks, Im still in PT, but that should conclude by the end of the month. I won't have the range I had pre injury but I will have "normal" function (I was hypermobile). The hand...well, we'll get it as good as we can but CRPS isn't fixable. Luckily, I discovered Harley already had the skill set needed to help.
Happy...Thank you. Harley isn't retiring yet. But I must prepare for that eventuality. You are right. That us very hard.
