just wanted to say i had my surgery last wednesday --
carpal tunnel release and cmc arthroplasty. it went well,
& the doc said that though he's seen worse, my thumb joint was in very bad
and was trying to fuse. good i didn,t put it off any longer!
looking forward to getting voice rec. software this week so i can write
for my students with capital letters -- though my fingers are not in the
cast, i can't yet use them.
drawing and painting are weeks away,
though i've been messing around with lefty watercolors ['messing'is the
thanks for all your good wishes. and be good to your hands, of course.
ps meike, CONGRATULATIONS! enjoy that baby.
even more amazing than a chick, i think.
