I have good news and not such good news regarding my finger. The good news is that overall, I think it's doing a little better. The periods of tingliness are a little less frequent and some times I'm scarcely feeling the tingliness unless I press the finger tip with a nail from my left hand. I'm going to hope that means that it's improving. The not so good news is that the tingliness flares up on occasions even when I haven't really been using that finger. ?? I also have to admit that I'm getting pretty discouraged - not only does having to rest the finger mean that I cannot so the things I enjoy (quilting, hand stitching, machine sewing, etc.) but it also means that I can't do some of the things I really need to do (as a result of shoulder issues, I have very little strength in my left arm, and having to favor the finger makes it difficult to rely on my right hand for many tasks).
Yesterday we drove over to St. Louis to drop off my sewing machine for its annual tune up and repair. I've got a mini retreat to attend on November 8 (praying hard that the finger won't force me to be a "no-show") so I will need my machine back and stitching like a charm.
Winter is here ... we had a low of 27 last night! Yikes! So much for fall.
Got a busy day ahead - spending the day at my dad's and watching the Blues play tonight. Hope you all have a fabulous Friday!
