Things here have been coming along pretty good. I have begun cutting out a new mohair open mouth teddy bear. I'll continue to work on it as long my arm will allow. I still have numbness and needle stabbing pain around my elbow and forearm. Here we are at 9 weeks since the accident. I thought that it would be completely healed by now. Apparently there is some nerve damage. I guess I should be patient and give it some more time. And thankful that it was not worse than it was.....
Things have been really quiet here in my little corner of the teddy world. Hopefully I have not been out of the "public eye" to long.
I will try to keep things updated with my new teddy bear project.

Oh Roxanna it is so good to hear from you. Your arm is healing nice and looks so much better. Sorry to hear you are still getting pain but like you said it will take time.
I have been thinking of you and wondering how you was getting on   bear_flower  :hug:  bear_flower  :hug:

Roxanne it is so good to see that your arm is healing so well. I am sorry that you still are having problems, but as you said it will take time. Take it easy with your sewing and I am sure it will be wonderful as ever when complete. Great that you can sew again.

Hugs, Jane.  bear_flower

Roxanne, good to see you healing so nicely. Still early days but stick this in the back of your mind... My hubby just about tore his foot off a few years ago and has masses of nerve damage. A Physio friend did dry needling, a bit like acupuncture and it did help him. You must be so relieved the worst is over. That was a nasty accident :hug:  :hug:  :hug:

Nerve damage does take much longer to heal than we might think.  Everything looks fine on the outside, but those nerves on the inside are still in a healing mode.  You can think of that pain as a reminder that you still have an arm.  I cringe when I think of how close you came to losing your arm.

I'm so pleased to see your arm is healing nicely in spite of the nerve damage, which always takes longer. Good to hear you're back to your bear making. bear_thumb  bear_thumb
