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!

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!


  1. Hope your hand gets better so you can get up and at'em!

  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!

  4. Glad the surgery went well :)
    Hope you get well soon Jaina! Take rest and come back with flair :)

  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.
