Five screws and a “T” shaped plate later, I was in recovery.The doctor said the surgery went well.  I wasn’t sure. I was trying to control my arm.

Clunk! My heavily casted hand fell on my head of its own volition. Powerful medication had been put into my arm during surgery so that the pain and everything else would be absent from my arm.  Whoa! My arm shot off in a strange direction. Catch it!  I think I would prefer the pain. Either way I cannot sleep.

Twelve hours later things have calmed down but I need a rest.

Thank you all for your concern and good wishes.  Denny is already planning our return to the boat.  I am not sure when I will be able to do likewise .



Denny reduced to cooking if he wants to eat.  He has been doing a little laundry too. No wonder he wants to hurry back to the boat.

  1. Thanks for keeping the blog up & running. Were you dreaming all that arm stuff? Anyway. Take your time & heal well


  2. Arden-We're glad to hear the surgery went well. Are you sure they didn't give you a bionic arm?  It sounds like it needs some reprogramming.   :)  Best wishes for a speedy recovery!LoveNina and

    Sorry that y’all are temporarily marooned at your home port and having “daring adventures” like surgery and Denny’s cooking 😉

    Rest, build up strength and don’t forget have your 5 o’clock Happy Hour every day!
