Hi you guys! Can you believe it’s February already? I sure can’t. And I can’t believe this is my first blog post of the year! (Hanging my head in shame over here.)
Hope that you can forgive me, I’ve been going through a super rough patch. You see, I had knee surgery back in August (read all about it here, don’t worry there’s no blood and gore ha!). And all was going fine up until a few weeks ago. That’s when I started having these horrible burning pains like hot knives stabbing me whenever I walked. Kinda feels like my leg is being dipped in molton lava and it’s dissolving. It is awful, worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. Kinda put a damper on most things.
After x-rays, a CT scan, and an MRI the doc figured out that it’s nerve damage from the surgery. I’m taking medicine for it, have to ramp up and won’t have the full dose for 2 more weeks yet. But it seems to be getting better — cross your fingers! It’s so good to be able to walk again. And even sit, for that matter. Up until the last few days I’ve been stuck having to keep my leg straight so that the nerve didn’t get set off.
I didn’t get to go to CHA this year, made me so sad not to see everyone. But! I made some cards for the Studio Calico booth using new stamps that Hero Arts makes for them — these are so awesome, just love them! Above are the scraps from some of the cards. I’ll be sharing more over the next few days. So happy to be back!
Missed all of you,
