Well, I can't believe that I have fractured my wrist!
I have had the summer holidays off with my youngest, & 3 weeks ago, I put my hand up to stop her doing something & she fell onto my right hand forcing it the wrong way. It was sore & I noticed that it was quite swollen the next day, but I had full range of fine finger movements, could squeeze with my fingers, so I just carried on, even though it was painful to grip large things or to twist my wrist & I could only wave my hand if I kept my wrist fixed. I also noticed that I could hear a clicking noise when I rotated my wrist.
On Monday I returned to work, but found stretching my fingers apart & picking up instruments hurt, so took myself to A&E after work, where I had an x ray & was given a wrist splint. Imagine my surprise today when the hospital rang me & told me not to take the splint off as I have fractured my wrist! Now I am not allwed to go to work until I have the all clear which I feel awkward about having just had time off for holidays.
I honestly thought I would have been in more pain. When I was in A&E I told them that I also had pain in my mid forearm, but they didn't x ray that area. I now realise that the clicking noise which I thought was coming from my wrist is actually coming from the upper area of my forearm - I think I should mention that when I have to go to fracture clinic next week!
Anyway, despite now being limited in my range of movements, (& I am very right hand dominant), I managed to make this for my friend's newborn son.
I had a new set of nesties which lent themselves perfectly to this Forever Friends stamp.
Teddy is from a piece of ribbon, coloured with Promarkers.
I found this image on the web a few years ago & the verse (sorry, I can't remember where). I love both of them & love to use them for a newborn card.
Below is a close up of the verse.
