Forced to take a break

Hi all,

I am updating my blog this month to let everyone know that follows it may be a little while before I can get back on here. I have been having issues with my arm off and on since the winter but in the winter when it first started after the holidays I did not think anything of it too much because it was not such a bother to me and when it flared up it went away quickly as well so I left it at that. The last few weeks though my arm has been very bothersome and is only getting worse where I can't even get to sleep comfortably because the pain is a little much. Doing darn near anything from stitching to holding a cup or book or even opening a bottle of soda for James is becoming a little difficult. Well since the pain is getting more intense everyday I decided to get to the doctor and it turns out I have tendinitis. It started back in the winter from what the doctor had said but he told me I should have not ignored it either because that is why I have it so bad now because I have been stubborn and did not do anything til it got bad. He told me I have to stop doing a lot of the things I do like my stitching or typing on the computer and other things that will put strain on my arm and aggravate it. Seeing as I have had an issue with this for a while I was told I need to take care of myself now or else I will cause long term damage and it will not heal properly or I could put myself at risk of getting chronic tendinitis. So sadly for a bit I will not get to do what I want if I want my arm to get better quickly so I am hoping to be back sometime in May! Now lets see how good I am at listening! Doing not much for a while is going to drive me batty! Thanks for all the comments on my last post it is always nice when I have so many that pop in. See you in May! Happy stitching!
