    Well yesterday was a month since my mishap. Slowly but surely I am improving with each day but still a tiny bit of pain .. more aches really at the fracture site and I still have movement issues. I go Tuesday to ortho and will call for PT after that. I did not want to call this week with it not yet a month and with all the holiday here.

    yesterday I sat at the table with the lap top and tried to scrap.. omg lol.. not pretty. Even with a template it was difficult for me.. was like I was just starting out scrapping. You couldn’t tell it was one of my pages!! Lol .. after an hour the pain was there so I trashed page in the bin and will try again maybe today.

    I never realized how much the ball of your shoulder you use for everything!

    hopefully I will be back to scrapping sometime in January once healing has been longer and PT is in process!

    Miss you all!

    Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!

    I hope you feel better for MOC! Have you ever tried a track pad? As I move my hand on mine, my wrist rests in front of it and I don't think I'm using shoulder muscles. Merry Christmas!

    Oh my Christa! I’m so sorry, I don’t know how I missed this before. Glad to hear you’re starting to heal but please take care of yourself and don’t over do it. Merry Christmas

    Thanks Michele. I move my wrist but if I reach for something with the letters or whatever with the mouse I find it pulls a little. Going to try again in a few minutes.. yesterday I think too with the wrist resting on edge of table must have affected a nerve in my pointer finger.. going to try and see what happens today!! :) thanks gif the good wishes.. I hope I can make a few pages for MOC.. time and pain levels will be the factor.. I have completed every year so it will ruin my streak and fun if I can’t do MOC 10 with all of you! Hugs and Merry Christmas to you to..it is going to be a warm one here in VA, Michele:)

    Thank you Monica!! Today the shoulder / humerus ball joint is not feeling too happy. I think I will be more relieved after talking with dr on Tuesday after he takes X-ray to see how it is healing. That is why I am scared of pt
