Mission Statement

We are a people who tell stories in one form or another.
After all isn't blogging just another way to gather around and tell those stories?

Motherhood is Painless is about finding the humor in the every day. In finding the happiness in those stories that we tell. What would happen if we *all* learned to laugh at ourselves? Maybe then the dark corners would recede a bit and we would all rejoice at the love we find there.

Wiggle It, Just a Little Bit - Part 3

So, here I am, one week into this recovery. I do my exercises, as prescribed four times a day (whichever kid happens to be around gets a big kick out of counting the reps for me.)

And slowly, things are getting easier. I can feel most of my finger now, in fact the only bit that is numb is where the surgeon cut away the tumor. I've gotten all the sensation back in the rest of my finger, and a good deal of the incision is healed.

I've gotten an amazing lot of range of motion back, and while I'm still tentative with it, there's lots I do without thinking.

However, there are a few raw spots, and the joints of my finger are taking their sweet-ass time in healing. I'm reluctant to put any lotion on the cracked and sore skin. I desperately want to scrub my finger, like it will feel better once there's no longer a purple jagged line running down and across it.

Tomorrow I see the OT for the first time. I'll post more after that visit.

Ok, I have been a horrible Bloggy friend and am clueless. I hope you are okay and I will go read previous posts.
