Tag Archives: hand therapy

I’ve always loved getting mail (as long as it’s not bills!) and I enjoy sending cards to people when they least expect it. It’s nice to get a little note every once in a while to say hi and just let someone know you’re thinking of them. I don’t think people do that enough. Most are too busy to sit down and jot a little note to say “hey! I was just thinking about you.”

Today I sat down and made a Thank You card for my hand therapist Brenda.

She is amazing and deserves more than just a card. Everyday I dreaded going to therapy, but I always had a great time while I was there. Besides the pain she put me through, she always made me laugh…always comforted me when I was in pain…and she did wonders for my hand. If it wasn’t for her I’d still be one-handed! She is great at her job and you can tell she really loves what she does. I feel lucky to have met her and I hope she enjoys the card I made her.


I love the bright colors and miss matched patterns. It reminds me of Brenda’s personality…happy and fun. I think she will really like it! I enjoyed making it and hope it puts a smile on her face. It’s the least I could do after all she has done for me.

I’m off to make another card. Both kids are at grandmas tonight, so I have lots of me time to craft and spend time with the hubs.

See you tomorrow!

Hello friends. I have some wonderful news to share with you. A few post ago I told you about our wreck and how I broke my left hand. I had my cast removed June 6th and since then I’ve been doing hand therapy 2-3 times a week. It’s an hour drive there and an hour drive back, an hour and a half of therapy, and it hurts!! Talk about taking up a lot of time throughout my week! Do I want my hand better? YES! So…I know it’s worth it. I’ve been so frustrated with my progress. Just wanting to be better and get on with my life. My attitude has been in such a slump lately.

Well….today I got great news! My hand is not exactly perfect, but it’s getting there! My therapist says with a lot of work at home I may be able to stop coming in every week! I am so thrilled. I have my actual doctor appointment tomorrow and it’s really up to her. But, the fact that my therapist feels like I am so close to not coming is a huge step. I feel like finally I’ve made some real progress and I’m almost there. A big sigh of relief!  I think I’ve been smiling since I left the therapist this morning. 🙂

Today has been a great day! I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday. We’re off to Granny’s house. She’s making us dinner and my tummy is hungry.

See you tomorrow.
