Another 4 weeks

Not supposed to use my right arm for 4 weeks again.  Will pay for this little bit of typing in about half hour too.

For those that are going through similar issues don't get freaked out by my bad luck.  The radiation made my tissue more susceptible to infection.  The infection did not want to clear up so they went back in on Thurday and physically cleaned the inside up.  They removed the implant cleaned it up then replaced it.  So you won't hear from me for about 4 weeks.

I'm Back

Had surgery on July 20th.  The final for the reconstruction; providing this silly infection clears up.  Got the doctors okay to start using my arm (which I had already been doing just very cautiously).  So first order of stitching business is to finish off my FMN blocks.

The first pictures are of the blocks stitched down but no backstitching.  The second pictures are with simple backstitching added.

Am much happier with the look.  Now just have 8 more to backstitch.
