****Healing Strength Sent Stefan's Way****
Get well soon, Love. You know that we diabetics have problems enough
healing, and bones and the nerves associated with them are the most fragile
for us. So, You must take extra special care to keep your blood sugar levels
in control, and the stress and pain make it harder, I know. I've been a
good girl since my back surgery, and kept mine at a reasonable level, now
you must do the same.
I'm also sending extra special good luck wishes on the job interview. My
altar is well lit with all the candles I've got burning for you.

I had hoped that maybe they would fix the sprain or apply the cast
for the fracture and we could still make fighter practice at 7:30.
Instead about that time I was being admitted to the hospital, and the
had put my arm in a sling and scheduled my surgery for 7:30 am the
I guess when I do something I don't fool around. I totally broke the
bone in my upper arm about two inches above the elbow and the two
pieces overlapped about half an inch. Then they found out during
surgery Wednesday morning that I also split the bone vertically from
the break through the elbow. They put in plate(s) and screws
At least this was my left arm. I'm right handed.
Actually my left arm hasn't been hurting that much since the surgery,
although there have been times when it really has... I apparently
bruised several ribs on my right side though, and those have hurt
much more. Before the surgery, having the bones
wiggle and rub against each other while my arm rested flat against
the table, now *that* was weird.
I've never broken any appendages before. Just compressed some
vertebrae five or six years ago. I'm trying to learn to do things one-
handed and dealing with things like this sling/cast itching. To
increase the pressure, it looks like Dell Computer may still be
interested in my skills since they want to bring me in to talk to the
board design managers, rather than the mostly systems managers they
had me talking to in early October. Hope I'm not too grungy or have
the cast stinking by then. I'll have to get my wife to drive me there
since I don't think I can drive with the cast over my elbow and arm.
I can still type but I'm rather slow with one hand. So I can comment
on here and work on the Florilegium continues, just at a much slower
rate than usual. :-)
