    This really sucks as I dislocated my sholder yesterday. I grabbed my ice scrapper from the back seat of the car and I twisted the arm wrong and my sholder popped out of the socket dislocated it and may have ripped the miscus but can't tell if it is ripped till the swelling goes down. I just started a new quilt that I really wanted to get started and now I can't work on any quilting for 6 or more weeks.....orders from my doctor!!

    Thank you for the prayers that is so nice of you. Maybe it was a sign to me that I need to slow down a bit.

    It's also a sign you need a garage and/or one of those remote starters for your car so you never have to scrap again!!!

    -pat-pat-pat- Come and sit by me on the sidelines for a while. I had rotartor cuff repair surgery on 12/27 and am still not able to do ANYTHING yet. I have started crocheting a little against the doctor's orders. He said that this was the first time that he had ever seen a completely amputated rotator cuff. The surgery was supposed to be laproscopic and take 1.5 hours. It had to be an open surgery and took almost 6 hours.

    And we still don't know if it is going to work or not. The next step is a shoulder replacement.

    In the middle of all of this I am also getting ready to move while my husband is working out of state.

    Just do what I have been doing - PLANNING. I have been working on acquiring fabrics and deciding which goes where for several projects that I want to start as soon as I am able. But the most important thing is to do what the doctor says. I know that I am pushing a little, but it will be 5 weeks on Monday. And I am only pushing it a little.

    Yikes! I expected to read this thread and hear something else... that's gotta hurt. I'm sorry to hear that this happenned. I know what it's like to be forcibly placed into the position (medically) to be unable to sew & quilt. It really sucks. I'll tell you what though, when it's happenned to me - when you come back it almost feels as if you're learning all over again in the respect that it gives you a brand new clean slate of an appreciation and passion for the hobby you've engaged in for so long. I promise, the month won't be that long! You can spend some quality time planning new and wonderful projects to add to your to do list for when you're better! Here's to hoping you feel better soon hun!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    Wow, one seemingly simple move and the shoulder gives out! Geesh. I hope that its not too serious and just needs its rest. Yes, a long time, but our bodies need to be pampered. :) Sounds like a good time to plan and visit LQS and touch fabric. Maybe buy some too.

    Feel better soon.

    Hugs

    So sorry, try to look on the good side, you can sit and read each and every post on here without feeling like you should be quilting. And you can still shop for fabric. Think positive....this too shall pass....and I do understnd. I had a shoulder replacement a couple years ago.

    Think of all the time you will have to sit and design your future projects! When you're in "quilt-mode" it takes a serious injury to side-line you!

    Guess I will have the time to read a lot on the board. I am hoping it heals up with no problems.

    I've been reading the Jennifer Chiaverini books. They are about a a group of ladies who quilt, just in case you're not familiar with them. Maybe you could get someone to check them out of the library for you. When you've been sewing everyday, it is very difficult to stop something you find so much enjoyment in. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery.

    Sorry to hear about the shoulder pain. It really takes a lot of time to heal. And I know you'll get restless from time to time. Pet your fabrics and make some great choices for that future quilt. My prayers are with you

    I am sorry to hear this. At least it will heal and it will only be 6 or so weeks. During this waiting time perhaps you can peruse some magazines for more inspiration; stay on the board more (smile); watch fun movies; read good books; talk and have tea with friends; get regular massages; well you get the picture. I hurt my shoulder once and cannot stress enough doing exactly what they tell you; if you do the outcome will be wonderful. Take care of yourself and ask for pampering and pamper yourself!!

    Look on the bright side. You can't shovel for 6 weeks either! Or do housework! I'm so sorry you can't quilt and I hope everything heals quickly.
