...on the 6th day of Christmas [aka, "perfect timing..."

this is the day that this was supposed to commence...



I would have had to postpone it...
considering the current circumstances...



my hand is really feeling much better...

except for the 2, actually injured, joints...
most of the soreness & swelling is gone now...
and there's just a bit of stiffness...



as well as only a touch of the swelling & bruising...



my left hand is almost looking normal...
if you ignore the splint...
which has been a VERY GOOD thing...

however, to have started the demo today...
I would have needed to have worked...
on "path clearing", "stuff removal" from the bath...
"tp holder" removal from the wall...ect... over the weekend...
when I was incapacitated, big time...

I could barely feed myself... much less catch kitties,etc...

now, I can start doing the stuff I need to get done...
before next Tuesday [01/06/09] the big "D" day...

if my healing continues as fast as it has gone just today...
I'll be ready for the demo crew on Tuesday...

my dr. said that the very quick and constant application...
of an ice pack to the injury on Saturday was a big factor...
in lessening of the severity of the effects of the injury...

I only had the ice pack...
because something I'd ordered as a Christmas gift...
came late... having just arrived on Friday...
in an ice chest...with several long lasting ice packs...
or I wouldn't have had any at all...

sometimes God's perfect timing just takes my breath away...

and thanks again to all whose prayers & random acts of kindness...
have moved this recovery along at top speed...

God is SO good...He has "helpers"...
and He plans ahead...!

Catsinger, I am SO sorry for you discomfort (that's a nicer word that "extreme pain!) that you have had to go through with your hand! My prayers will continue to be with you for very quick healing for your BIG day next week!

As the year comes to an end I want to thank you for your beautiful blog, for your inspirational words and all of your lovely pictures and the cool stories about your kitties and, of course, Molly! It is one of the pleaces I visit every day and even though I don't always leave comments, I always leave your site a better person that I was before I clicked "Catsinger" on my AOL tool bar! You have been an inspiration! I look forward to next year and my daily "visits!"

Love and hugs,

thanks for all your kind words, thoughts & prayers...
I consider myself very fortunate to have found my way to this place...
this place where I can trust ore to Him and at the same time be lifted up by the same Brothers & Sisters I am privileged to lift up...
it has been an eventful years...
with ALL of life's trials & blessings...thank you, Jesus... !
