I just realized that I have not put up pictures of the newly painted room. Oops! It is probably because now that the weather is so warm I hardly go into that room since it does not have an air conditioning vent. So my office newly painted with a new computer desk and file, has not been organized. its on the to-do list.
Speaking of to-do. I have been putting off having a fourth surgery on my finger now for months. If you remember back in September of 2006 when I accidentally was bit by the dog and got a bone infection. The story continues into October if you are so inclined. In any case I was left with a crooked finger because a piece of bone was removed because of the infection. My doc wants to straighten the finger back out by cutting of a piece on the other side which will make my finger straight once again. however it is about a 6 month recovery with pins sticking out of the end of my finger during that time. So as you might imagine, I have been in no rush to do this.
Not only will I have to have surgery (outpatient) but the pain is quite bad for a while. So I will miss some work, maybe a week, and be one handed for 6 weeks. The idea was that I would do the surgery this summer for 2 reasons. My doc is about to retire and he is the only one I trust after the fiasco I went though (see Sept -Oct archives), and Jake will be home so that I have some help for my one handed self. So my appointment is Wednesday, and I will be asking him to finally schedule the surgery. I’m scared.
The distal interphalangeal joint is what will be evened out. Right now that joint is frozen straight, and will be forever, but at least it won’t be crooked. So when I type and hit the letter A it actually hits S, etc for every key that is supposed to be hit with that finger. Makes me very happy there is spell check.
