It's been a very good day. Doctor's appointment went better than I could have hoped - dressing, stitches, and sling completely removed, prescription for physical therapy, and a very good prognosis. The painful/sensitive area below my elbow where the nerve was trapped seems much, much better, and everyone seems to feel that my hand numbness will resolve itself. I have movement (weak and painful, but that's ok).
I finished scarf #2 and was able to TAT a 4-4-4-4 ring. Welcome back to my hand, shuttle! I've missed you!
Thanks to everyone for the support, thoughts, and prayers, and keep them coming.
