First, I wish to apologize to my readers for skipping a week of posting, but I have been suffering with my hand in which I will be having surgery sometime soon.
My right and left wrist are both destroyed from the Rheumatoid Arthritis. But my right wrist is the worst one. For 2 years now it has been awful. The wrist has dislodged itself from the hand joint causing it to hang downward. I wear braces on both hands but the right wrist is the worst one. The dent you see between the right hand joint and the wrist is where the joints came apart.
On the top of my hand there is a large bone created by the arthritis which has to be shaved off and carpel tunnel has also destroyed the inside of my hand. All of this needs to be repaired when I go under the knife.
Where you see the red mark is where the bone is and when that bone gets super inflamed from the arthritis, the skin stretches and it opens the skin.
The pain is so dreadful at times that it prevents me from sleeping at night. After avoiding to see the hand surgeon for almost 3 years, my RA doctor ordered me to see him right away...so this month I go to see him, get x-rays and schedule surgery.
I have been trying to work on a dollhouse I am making my grand-daughter for Christmas but it sure hurts to do all that I am doing. I hope I can wait until January before having my hand surgically fixed so I can finish the dollhouse.
Typing or writing has become very difficult because of this problem and my RA...I am seriously thinking of closing my vegan blog since I won't be able to cook as much. If I decide to do this I will let you all know by next week. Have a great week.
