my hands, my life

just a quick note to all my fellow bloggers. I have been limited, more so than in the past.

My RA ,etc. has gotten the better of me and I now have a torn rotator cuff on my right shoulder, tendonitis, etc. Too painful to type or text, or even use the mouse. This was after I had just recovered from surgery on my left hand for a dislocated extensor tendon and sagittal band rupture.

another piece gone. Sorry I havent responded . But hope you are all well and safe.

As an introduction to the world of Elektragaaz…
