Today I finally got my sleeve and glove!!! I think I can FINALLY see that light at the end of this long road that I have been going down!!! When I started this, I never dreamed it would take this long or especially take me to surgery....but I always seem to take the long route to get things done.

It will definitely take practice to get this glove and sleeve on....sorta like being "fluffy" and trying to put on a girdle and pantyhose at the same time!! I do have a gadget called the "butler" that helps. ..I still think it will be alot easier than wrapping with all those layers of foam and bandages. I already have more flexibility in the use of my hand. I was actually able to sign the papers for the glove and sleeve!!

As my sweet Mother would say..."If the Lord is willing and the creek doesn't rise", I will get to go back to work next week!!!
