Out of Commission



No, it isn't that bad. I had a stupid accident yesterday, and my left hand is in a splint. I'm typing this with my right hand, awkwardly. I have to keep the left hand elevated.

I'll announce the winners to the contest on Monday night. Hopefully, the doctor will say I can use my hand again then.

Thanks for your patience. See you Monday night.

Best wishes as you recover.

Corey Wilde said...

Good luck with that hand, Lesa. Very frustrating, trying to do everything with one hand.

randio said...

Ouch! Hope you're better soon!

Lesa said...

Thanks, Everyone! I really appreciate the good wishes. It's really frustrating.

Cathy said...

Did you get overenthusiastic in rooting for the Suns last night? Whatever happened, heal fast!

Carrie K. said...

I hope your hand is better very soon!

pattinase (abbott) said...

Oh, my. Take care, Lesa.

Kaye said...

Good grief, I hope it isn't too too painful. Relax and take care of yourself.

Kay said...

Best wishes to you girlfriend! Take care and just take a break. Everyone will survive and you can spend some nice reading time. Thinking about you!!

Melanie said...

Take it easy and heal quickly.

caryn said...

Hope the hand gets better soon! At least you weren't hurt worse though.
I didn't do blogs yesterday so I just posted about Dog on It this morning.(I too loved it)

Joy said...

Speedy healing wishes are being sent your way. :)

Joe Barone said...

You mentioned frustration. Sometimes my frustrations remind me of my blessings. There are millions of things I have right now (the ability to walk, breathe, fight off illness, etc.) that I never think to stop and be thankful for.

We take so many things for granted.

I hope you are continuing to heal.

Janet Rudolph said...

Sorry to read of your accident. Heal quickly! Typing with one hand when you're a touch typist is awkward and time-consuming. Turning book pages is still easy.

Janel said...

Get better soon! I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't use one of my hands. Hugs and good thoughts are coming your way!

Lesa said...

Thank you! I can't tell you how nice it is to receive your notes. Joe, you're right. I should be grateful for what I do have.

Hugs, everyone. And, thank you.

(That came out hygs the first time.)

I hope your hand feels better! Typing one-handed is so frustrating!

TJ said...

Oh no! Get better soon!

Hi All,

This is Lesa's husband. Don't worry I'm not going to do the Blog while she is gone. She so much appreciates your thoughts & good wishes. She considers all of you her friends. You don't know how it is killing her not being able to Blog. Hopefully she says she will be back by Monday night.

In the meantime her poor husband gets to put a new splint on her finger after every shower. No, I'm not feeling sorry for myself. She really is a "Angel."

Thanks again.

Jim

Hope you're feeling better (i.e., more functional!) I posted my review of The Last Song Dogs, if you're interested:

Are you having allergies? It's horrendous in Tucson!

Lesa said...

Hi Rhapsody,

No allergies, fortunately. Only allergic to something that blooms in northern Florida.

Molly said...

Lesa -- I am SO sorry! I hope that the weekend allows for a speedy recovery. Perhaps the award that I have given you today might boost your spirits? I hope so.

caite said...

See, there is the advantage of only typing with two fingers. If I lost the use of one hand, I would only be down 1 finger!

Hope you are back to 100% soon!

Luanne said...

Oh not good, I had to make do with one hand after some surgery. Makes life interesting! Feel better but don't rush it.

windycindy said...

Hope your hand heals quickly!
Take care of yourself.....Cindi

Pat Browning said...

What a bummer,Lesa! Maybe this is life's way of telling you to take a couple of days off.(-:

Get better soon.

Sorry to hear about your hand, Lesa. I hope it won't be out of commission for too long. In the meantime, take it easy, keep that hand elevated and use your extra spare time to get some extra reading in. You can then tell us all about it when you're recovered.

Lesa said...

Thanks everyone. I've been doing a really good job of keeping it elevated. But, I've just received the nicest honor, so I'm going to have to hunt and peck a blog.

Yvonne said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your accident! I hope you're feeling better.

Kathrin said...

Lesa, get well soon!
I hope the pain is not too much. (((hug)))
Love, Kathrin
