Short update

Just wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be having surgery on Monday November 25th, an excision of an extra muscle in my right hand (our previous post tells you more about this). Recovery time is at least 3 weeks, so the quietness on our blog and other social media will continue for a bit longer.

I’m really nervous and feel ill-prepared, even though I know there’s not much to prepare. I’ve recently spoken to  a girl who had a similar surgical procedure done and she was fairly frustrated by her recovery. She wasn’t able to even dress herself for a good week and a half and still has trouble washing her own hair. And it was her non-dominant hand. Mine will be my dominant hand. She also showed pictures of her hand in the weeks after the surgery… it’s not a pretty sight. But I’ll keep those details to myself. ;)

Anyway, I won’t be able to do much for Mippoos. Although I’ll probably update some of our social media anyway because I have a feeling I’ll get pretty bored after a few days. I’ll just be slow, getting used to being left-handed for a few weeks.

I’ve got some great ideas for new blog posts and I really want to get back to sewing. Hopefully I’ll soon be able to share these! If everything goes well, I should be able to do more work than the last few months. I’ve been limited to a few hours a day due to these wrist pains. I’m looking forward to being able to work as much as I used to.

Please note that our Mippoos shop, www.etsy.com/shop/mippoos , is still open as Mom will handle all orders coming in. That’s her expertise ;)

See you in a few weeks!

    1. Hi Maria!
      Thanks for your concern.. I’m actually doing quite well already! The pain wasn’t half as bad as I expected it to be. There is a little complication due to the stitches/scar but I’ll write a blog post in the next few days to give a complete update!
