When it Rains it Pours

Dear Mom,

I’m going to have to stop writing for a while. I did something again to my right wrist—the hand that I type and write with and the one I use for just about every other function. The last time it happened, I went to a physical therapy doctor, had xrays, MRI, etc., and they couldn’t find anything—just like this last episode where I thought I was having a heart attack or whatever it was and the results: nothing. It's a good thing to find nothing. So I’ve come to a small conclusion—I say small since I’m still trying to understand it—that I need to lay low with everything.

To think of not writing nearly makes me insane, so I need to look deep and contemplate. I can’t say how long I’ll be at “rest” so bear with me. Maybe you can help me in some way to figure things out.

I love you.

P.S. Pecking at one key at a time with your left hand (if you’re right handed) is a bit time consuming and slightly annoying. But like the tattoo on your grandaughter's foot; This too shall pass.


  1. Hope your wrist is feeling better soon. Rest up!


  2. Hi Lynn - I'm sorry about your wrist. Have you thought of getting a mini-recorder? It isn't the same as typing and actually seeing the words on paper, but perhaps you can keep a handle on your ideas by recording them, or maybe a friend can take your recordings and type for you until you are again able. I'd go nuts, too, if I couldn't write, so I really empathize. I'll be sending thoughts and prayers your way for a speedy recovery!

  3. Hi Lynn! I'm so sorry. I know this will be so hard for you. I'll be your typist, that Lisa suggested!! We can get together at The Crooked Tree, drink coffee, and get creative!

  4. Hang in there with your wrist. Perhaps you should use an audio recorder to "write." After you heal, you can type the words you have spoken into the recorder.

    I owe you a letter BTW (it seems I always owe you a letter :) )


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
