My arm surgery May 22nd went great. The arm had rebroken so my doctor had to put in a new bigger plate, a bone graft, and an implanted bone stimulator that will be removed in a few months. For two weeks I was just in a splint to let the sutures heal and swelling subside, this past Friday I got a cast (and if you follow me on Instagram you know it’s bold and bright and has become my summer signature color!) and Monday I returned to work at 100%.
Writing is slow going with my right hand (and yep I'm right-handed) in a cast, Dragon Software is great for text but not for the formatting and linking needed for posts, so blogging will continue but not on a daily basis… more like 2-3 times a week. I’m much faster on my phone, so be sure to check me out on Facebook and Twitter!
And if you’re visiting the actual site you’ll see it looks a bit different. I meant to have this change take place early spring but… well arms take priority! I’ll write a separate post about it soon, but after NINE YEARS (this month is my blogoversary!) I finally made the jump from Blogger to self hosted on WordPress. There’s still some quirks (you may notice a bunch of comments missing from recent posts, they’ll return soon, if you don't see a link to comment click on the title of this post and you'll get to the area), if you find anything weird or frustrating do let me know. But the hope is with this change, once I have both arms at 100% I can make this site easier to navigate, search, and view on different devices. Let me know what you think!
If you’re reading this, thank you so much for sticking around. It has been a crazy year so far, but I can just feel the positivity for the rest of 2014. Would never think a second arm surgery would brighten my outlook, but it gave me a chance to really stop and think about the blessings in my life. And I do feel blessed, and one reason is you. Gosh I love you guys, and I love this blog, and I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things!
