After a long 4 mths, I have finally started my physiotherapy. My first session was last week with Judy and she put me through the paces by starting with my fingers. I think this has been the most suprising thing for me, it really neveroccured to me that I would break my forearm and my biggest challenge would be recovery of my fingers. We have a long way to go, another 9 sessions and the operation to get the metal pins out, and then we shall see where are. In an effort to follow Judy’s stern instructions to keep the hand as active as possible, I decided to get my inner ‘Martha Stewart’ out and do some sewing, which I had been putting off for an age. All the clothes with missing buttons where piled on my dining table and I got to it. I have to say I am not the neatest sewer in the world, but you know doing such a basic household chore does make you feel kind of nostalgic for the good old days when you would watch your grandmother forever baking or threading needles. Sometimes its nice to just sit and do something simple for a couple of hours, away from the TV, gossip mags, shops and other ‘noise’ we find ourselves in at the weekends. And I have the added benefit of being able to wear some really nice tops which had found themseleves buttonless at the back of the wardrobe. Long live Martha!
