More of this & that

P1040185

Yes, it hurts (quite a lot), but now it is done - an arthrodesis of the big toe. The inner joint is now removed and fixated.
Isn't the arrow pretty cool ?
It is drawn by the surgeon prior to the surgery yesterday. It is part of the pre op routine to identify the right body part.
I was so close to have surgery performed on the wrong hip many years ago, so I do like the arrow very much.

As I am not able to jump on crutches I will spend a lot of the next 6+ weeks here in my sewing corner, in my wheel chair.
A good place to be, after all :-)

P1040179Some stitchery is going on,

P1040190as well as some hexagons and some knitting for preemies, for Amandaprosjektet, which is providing hospitals with socks, hats,mittens and blankets for preemies.
The hexagons have 1.25" sides, so you see, the hat and the socks are not big.

Endelig er det overstått, og jeg håper operasjonen ble vellykket. Godt å høre du får sydd litt når du nå får testa tålmodigheta "litt".
Ønsker deg en riktig god fredag, og en god helg.
Klem,
Laila

Praying for a fast recovery for you~

Great excuse to spend your time stitching! Hope it's not too painful. Those premmie things are so weenie, they should give them lots of warmth.
What is that quilt you're working on? I love the fabric you have used.

Katie said...

I'm so glad you've finally had your surgery. Now you can stop worrying about it and heal! Have fun stitching. :-)

Yvette said...

Can you imagine how horrible this would be if you didn't sew or knit or do some kind of craft? Heal fast!!

Farm Girl said...

Best wishes for a speedy recovery - but what a fabulous reason to sit and stitch! Happy stitching.

Hanne, I feel your pain my friend. I am two months post op for a subtalar arthrodesis (ankle area) and am now clunking around in a walking boot. It's not very fashionable and could do with some embellishing but it does allow me to remove it for showering and sleeping.
Get well soon
hugs

Grautlerer med vel overstått - lykke til med rekonvalesensen! Du vet vel å gjøre det beste ut av denne situasjonen ;-)

Å stakkar! Det ser vondt ut! Men - nå må du kanskje være helt i ro noen dager, og da ser jeg at du har kosearbeid i fanget. Selv har jeg ramlet oppi oppvaskmaskinen. Det var vann på kjøkkengolvet og dermed satt jeg plutselig oppi døren til min nokså nye Miele. DEN hadde flaks, det hadde ikke jeg!

I have followed your blog for quite some time now. I do not blog however.
I hope the surgery will give you a painfree existence as soon as all is healed. :O)
Take care and keep on stitching!

Au, da , dette såg ikke godt ut, men får håpe det blir bedre etter hvert. Så får du "kose" deg så godt du kan med broderi i mellemtiden. Riktig god bedring.

Vel, nå er det overstått - jeg ønsker deg en god rekonvalenstid :o) Søte sokker og lue, lurte på hvor du finner mønster til så små plagg? jeg har masse baby ull på "lager".

Anne Heidi said...

Piler er bra! God bedring- håper du koser deg i syhjørnet ditt, og at smertene blir raskt borte!

Pen Pen said...

Ouch! Your foot looks painful! Enjoy your recovery time with lots of sewing!! Can't wait to see all that you get done!

God bedring, Hanne. Oppi alt så er det jo kjekt å ha en hobby som kan utføres stillesittende. God helg!

Hei!
Jeg ønsker deg god bedring og en god rekonvalesens. Håper smertene går fort over og at du orker å sy litt. Da har du i alle fall noe å gjøre på, når du må sitte i ro. Riktig god helg! Hilsen Astri i Bergen

Vel overstått - og god bedring! Bra med pila, så de ikke tok feil.
Fint at du orker å sy, så tiden ikke går så sakte mens sårene gror...

Anne Ida said...

Godt det er overstått! Håper alt gror som det skal! Godt å se det ikke skorter på sylysten ;-)

God bedring med deg - ja, blir lang tid å sitte i ro. Det positive må vel være at du har en strålende hobby du kan prioritere når du føler for det.
