The Road to Recovery

The road to recovery is the only road I've been traveling on lately. And I must say it's been a long one. I am better, but still not there. I have been in Physical Therapy for the last month and have made Great progress, I still have some soreness and stiffness in my hand and fingers that they say is caused from Arthiritis aggravated by the trauma from the accident. My range of motion and flexibility is much better, but only at about 35% of normal. So more work is needed there. And some issues with tendons in my arm from not being used for so long. And the biggest is my strength and grip, it's just not there, my grip in my right hand is only at 21 where as in my left it's 55.
I have appreciated not having to drive in the winter weather, but I so miss the traveling. And the fact that I haven't been able to be crafty has been very hard! I am trying to do a little crafting, but have pain in some areas of my wrist and hand, so it's been frustrating.
But, chin up, I have been keeping up with your blogs and am sorry for not posting comments like I would like to. Just know I have been visiting you.
Hope that you all are having a Crafty, Productive day! Craft a little for me, too.
Until next time...........Hugs, Bren
