Quick Note

Hello, readers! This is just an update bulletin: a few weeks ago I told you I wasn't able to type with my left hand. Today we got the MRI results and found out I need surgery, which I will be having done tomorrow. I have a few blog posts written up ahead of time, but I'm afraid by the time my four weeks in a cast are up, I'll have fallen pretty far behind.
Thanks for understanding!
Jaina

Update 12/6/14:
 The surgery went well, and I'm recovering slowly but steadily. I now have feeling/mobility back in one of my fingers. Only four more to go before I can try to type!

Update 12/11/14:
One week ago today I had my surgery! I still can't use my hand to type, but we're buying the Dragon speech recognition software to help me function on the computer. I will focus on catching up with my AP classes, and then I can review the growing pile of books I read over the last week. Also, check back tomorrow for my review of Sheila Turnage's The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing!

  2. Thanks, Alex! I hope so, too. At least the numbness will leave my fingers by tonight. Until then, typing is absolutely impossible. I have to hunt and peck with my right hand!

  3. Oh no lady! I hope you are able to regain feeling in your fingers soon. I can't imagine not being able to use one of my hands. Gah! Wishing you the best and fastest recovery possible (:

    1. Thanks, Morrighan! It is definitely challenging only being able to use one hand, but you'd be surprised how much you learn to adapt. Typing one-handed gets a lot faster!

  5. Thanks, Lakshmi! I had a terrible 24-hour virus on Monday on top of my wrist pain. That was not fun, let me tell you. But today I'm focusing on chasing my (very behind) school work so I can blog again more. I didn't get a Teaser Tuesday up yesterday, but I'm going to post a review of THE GHOSTS OF TUPELO LANDING on Friday.
