Busted wing - update

Looks like vintage chintz but it's my messy kitchen table.

What I should be doing is winding spindles of dmc cotton to transform into dirty threads, but it's not going well.

I had a simple, speedy process in place. The stock arrived. I set everything in position only to realize that, due to the stupid left shoulder injury, I just cannot.

Had the MRI and met with the surgeon. A labrum tear and pieces of floating junk that have formed benign cysts big enough to interfere with movement and cause pain and weakness.

Before any surgery, there will be physical therapy. I will consult with that person to find a way to incorporate dirty thread production into the PT.

The trick? Teach Lefty to do Righty's thing. Lefty is a quick study while Righty is slow to pick it up. Who da thunk it?

oh Waaaah....not!, yes and also, learning a different
way to do things is a good thing. Those life repetitious movements
in themselves cause trouble, so to change that.
But still...this in the time of peony and roses, eee.
And would Arnica help at all? not as much as on new injuries, but
Love to you and love to your shoulder

Hey-- I've got Time and like repetition. Want to send the stuff to me and I'll send it back, all wrapped and ready to go???? Wouldn't offer if I didn't think I would actually ENJOY the work. I love wrapping the floss I get at Goodwill.

SERIOUSLY consider the offer.

Drat an damn! So sorry for this trouble. May all go well with therapy.

Bummer! But it reminds me of when I was in high school & threw out my elbow (playing catcher, trying to throw the ball to 2nd base). I'm a rightie, and had to try and learn how to write with my left hand. Painfully slow, but dang if my writing as a leftie wasn't much neater and more legible! Go figger...
