A speedy recovery. I've had two wrist surgeries - no fun.
PS Gorgeous soaps, too!
Thank you @DianaMoon and @Relle.Lovely soaps Earlene, sorry to hear about your hand again, at least you know what your in for, hope it's getting better.
Yes, it is healing very well and recovery/usage is improving faster than from the last surgery & subsequent broken metacarpal incident. It's keeping me from making soap, though. Stitches should come out next Wednesday (other than the one that already came out on its own last Saturday). After that, as long as the incision is intact, I'll be able to wear gloves again and may be making soap again by the end of the month.
Most of the bruising has dissipated enough that it no longer looks like a prize fighter's fist, although some of the purple still remains. The swelling is much diminished and the scar looks much less horrendous than it did a week ago (that was because of the swelling and bruising that it looked so bad.)
I like the Physical Therapy place I am going to this time. They have an online app that I can log into to pull up all my prescribed exercises with video as well. My last place did not have that feature, and only printed handouts. Now I have printed handouts AND an app with demo videos at my disposal. Really quite a nice feature to include in the service!
I stand reprimanded, but it does relate to What Soapy Thing as giving soap to someone was the intended topic. The other part was an 'aside' which also affects my current ability to make soap. And the information about the link (edited in later) was also pertinent because it didn't work the first few tries.Woe is me... while i would like to participate in discussing what you all are posting here, I don't often drop in and when I do I stop myself from commenting. JMHO, this thread is long enough without adding to it by adding to the discussion.
For example, this post.
Not to discourage discussion, not at all, but to encourage discussion where ALL members can benefit and participate, simply post a subject in the appropriate forum for all to see, then report "What Soapy Thing..." you did and share a link to the discussion here.
An excellent example of how it's done is @DianaMoon 's recent post here.
An excellent example of how this thread is supposed to work is @Catscankim 's recent post here.
And Relle has not reprimanded me, so I am not sure the linked post was wrongly placed. It was one post instead of 3, which I could have done, but I think is offputting.
