So as for me, been extremely busy! life in general and then I severed my right index finger at the palm where it bends and went a week in a plaster cast with temporary sewed togther till i had sugery ( about 2 weeks ago)

The tendons and nerves and all that put back togeter with a few insions sp? up my finger and down into the palm of my hand. VERY painful recovery! sorry if my typing is full of typos, im one handed lool

I just got my 3rd plaster cast of and now have a custom splint. Still have all my stitches and change bandages once daily. The dressing material is impossible to find even when ordered from pharmacy and friggin EXPENSIVE!! FOR SOMETHING YOU USE ONCE AND THROW AWAY lool..

Anyhow the casting splint goes up to my elbow so I am litteraaly one handed. EVERYTHING is a challenge! Dh has had to pick up alot of slack, thanks for him!! but its hard accepting that its going to 6 months or longer this way and about a 1yr before some use is returned and most likely will need a 2nd surgery.

The best thing though is ZERO DISHES!!

I have a follow up doc appt with surgeon tomorrw afternoon.






My 2nd part of this update is found out with a radom routine pre op pregnancy test that baby # 9 will be here in early July or late June. Havent had an US yet just going by my guess at last known period!

I just want to know whos responsible for the tainted water here????

I want to say both "oh my goodness you poor thing" and "congratulations" but it sounds so weird to say them together, haha.

Oh Man just what I dont need, surgeon said somehow I have managed to Re-Rupture the tendons and some of the nerves that were sewn back together and im just so upset because I have to go through this all over again and into the inscions that arent even healed yet and may need a graphing or something? so this puts me out even longer plus its 2-3 hour surgery and being under that long scares me!

Sorry to post this bad news here to you all, its just that I dont have anyone else to complain about it to. uuuugg this just sucks!

LOOL...I am THE klutz!! seriously....

I opened a can of refried beans ( our can opener cuts of the entire top part of lid so its not sharp, which is funny because thats the whole reason I bought that one, because seeing those razor blade tops the other type of can openers make, scared me silly )
and I was going to put the empty can into the recycle bin, holding the can with the top cupped in palm of hand, I somehow lost my balance and train of thought, and landed with my weight holding the entire top rim of that can!

and then once I saw my bones....well the blood and...uuuggg the worst part was that DH and the 3 olders had just left night school so I was home alone with the 2 young ones, I was just worried about passing out and the little ones being alone but I managed to call 911..
