I saw the surgeon today and he removed two clear suture tails at either end of my suture line on my wrist/hand. Amazingly he had closed the wound without using external sutures so that scaring would be minimal.
I can now start to make cards, but my effort has to be minimal. The verdict is a recovery period of 6 to 8 weeks before healing is complete. If my hand starts to hurt I must stop.
Having been given the green light, I proceeded to make a card, using the Easter Blessings stamp set, and coloured it using an Aqua painter and SU ink pads. I must admit my hand was a sore by the time I was finished, but I felt good at the same time.
The sentiment was from Perfectly Penned, a stamp set that is (sigh) sadly retiring.
