Update

Falling backwards over a pile of bricks was a very stupid thing to do.
Next Wednesday, the surgeon will screw me back together. Meanwhile, I endure.
Then I will be the experimental guinea pig to answer the question, "How long will it take to get stitching again?"
Good news--Doc says we can still go on our 50th  wedding anniversary cruise to circumnavigate Australia. I'll be seeing Gail in Gatton and her applique friends, so that will be a highlight of the trip!
To be continued......
(No stitching at the moment)

I just discovered your blog and am sorry it happened right when you went out of commission. Lucky me that I have all your old posts to read. Good news on getting to go on your cruise. 50 years is quite a milestone!

Hi Margaret, I broke the top off my humerus and then broke that into a couple of pieces in a fall two years ago. I had surgery to screw it back together and then had to have the screws removed a couple of months later. I was able to stitch after the surgery when the arm was in a sling. After being very diligent with my physio, I have regained full use of my shoulder and arm. Sometimes it will ache before a change in the weather but otherwise it is good as new. And a great story about falling over in Williamsburg at the Academy of Applique :-) All the best with the surgery. Hope to see you in Brisbane. Christine

So sorry to hear about your fall. I hope all goes well with the surgery especially with such a nice trip in your horizon.
