Sorry so late reporting bright eyes here forgot  my computer and I had put my cell phone in the computer case  then walked out the door and left both at home.  My hubby was nice and went home and brought it back to me then I fell asleep.  Well surgery went good, I have 2 rods crissed crossed in my thumb to make sure it stabilizes the bone.EEKS!! not looking forward to them taking the out when the time comes.  At least these rods has a little ball on the end of rod and doesn't look treacherous and can't gouge out my eye lol.  I had a hernia type issue in my palm close to the wrist that was causing pain he had to repair. Also, I had a big whopping nerve bundle that had regrown and is still trying to find my index finger and was causing nerve pain I had in the past, The Doctor was able to re-route the nerves to the thumb so hopefully resolved that nerve pain. They did a nerve block in my upper arm so I have no pain or control of my arm and hand whatsoever well except when I forget, move my hand and it bonks me in the head lol. Whew I am hoping that block last  longer than the 16 -18 hours they quoted and lets me get some sleep, they put it in  at 9 am.  I have an overnight stay in hospital just for precautions since I have tendancy to not cooperate and do things the hard way.  So afraid to jinx me so just saying for now  it has been uneventful  and hopeful I will go home tomorrow.  Thank you all so much for all your love, support and prayers.  I really am thankful to have met such wonderful great friends here in this community I am sending love and hugs to all of you. I am so thankful for MY FREEDOM and for each and everyone for sticking with me and riding along on my journey
