Express Your Gratitude

Deb Overton is celebrating her birthday by inviting everyone to join in by posting what they are grateful for. She is also giving away prizes and a collage on her blog. Click on her name above for a link with all of the details! for me, I am grateful for, well everything! In past blogs I have gone into great detail of this. But for something specific that applies to how I feel today, I am grateful that right now (knock on wood), the worst thing wrong with me health wise is the carpel tunnel in my hands. I am grateful for this because It has been diagnosed, it won't kill me, and it is curable! I have had it off and on for about 8 years. It has gotten very very bad lately - numbness in my right hand so bad the whole hand aches, wakes me up all night and I drop things. When working with glass if I cut my middle finger I don't even feel it until I see the blood. Driving, cycling and doing art - heck even working on the computer - is very difficult. ...But on Tuesday I went and saw a new doctor to the island who is a hand specialist - and next Thursday I am having hand surgery (only one at a time). It is endoscopy and is very fast and should heal quickly. Yeah!

I will be thinking successful surgery thoughts for you on Tuesday. Which hand are you getting done first? Isn't the aging process SPECIAL?
