That’s a great question!
I really did not disappear, even though it would seem to be the case.
In the middle of September I was doing a deep clean of my kitchen counters. I wanted to get all of those horrible spiders and their webs gone. During this task I found two of my Cuisinart blades hiding in a deep corner of the counter. They were covered with webs and dust. The first one was easy to clean but not that second blade! Once in my hand it did not want to be cleaned!! I know this because as I drew the towel across its surface, the dangest thing happened. My thumb, on my primary hand, was wounded. Sliced really deep, in fact. It would not stop bleeding. So, off to the emergency room we went. Five stitches later and a cheerful visit with the ER staff I made my way back home. It is always fun to get the doctor laughing while stitching away…and those stitches were so beautifully done!!
Being left-handed, with my very un-useful thumb I could not finish the kitchen cleaning. Naturally, I could not sew. crochet, type or do the ordinary things I usually do. GREAT EXCUSE!? No!?
I took the stitches out after 10 days…(& with great dismay) Deanna and Kurt helped out. Once all the dead skin sloughed off there is a noticeable section missing..the thumb is no longer smoothly rounded.
It has been almost a month and I can finally type. Crocheting is more difficult since my thumb is still very sensitive and the nerve endings have not completely rejoined so it feels numb. Those things make crocheting difficult..I just don’t seem to be able to maintain a consistent tension and that makes for sloppy crochet.
My current goals include practicing crochet stitches, cleaning, and getting back on track.
