Ulnar and Solar

Well my dear internets the kitchen, dining and living rooms are being worked on. My office has not installed anything at my house so that I could work from there. I guess there is always next year.

Good new the solar guys showed up and it has been installed. We are now proud owners of our own renewable energy, did I mention we are selling it to the utility company. It should cover our usage and after a few years or so it will have paid for itself and it's a good thing.

Keeping it short today, cause as y’all know I just had my last scheduled surgery for the year, ulnar nerve release. Dr. Yee says it is sorta like the carpel tunnel syndrome…the nerve gets trapped and restricted by tendons and such in my case at the elbow. This is also the same nerve that can be pinched/damaged at the neck. Remember when my co-worker had her neck fused, that was for her ulnar, but her doctor just called it a nerve. But anyways this nerve can also be trapped at the wrist, I’m sure y’all will agree with me when I say no I don’t what that.

Before photo over at 365 Views by Me; maybe even an after???? That is if you dare!

My whole arm is wrapped up nice and straight, yeah very weird. Alrighty then, meds kicking in and I’m off to nap. Take care my dear, dearest internets…

Read ya soon

The solar panels look GREAT!! Awesome, Paige. I totally am going to convince Jim to go solar when we re-do the Nova Scotia place.

Did you have a good nap? hope so!

I want solar panels! I want the elec Co to owe me money! Lucky you!

Don't want surgery or pain meds tho-
I did smash my ulnar nerve elbow passage on the right pretty bad- Still bothering the arm, but dealing.

I hope you are healing up fine, n your ulnar will soon be spiffily free n your arms so much better!

Paige, I've wanted solar for years, but so far it's been cost prohibitive. I love that you have had it installed.
And I'm hoping you will give us an update on what it's like to have (in a few months).

Blessings for a good rest and speedy recovery,

That's wonderful about the solar panels!! I'd love me some of those.

Oh Paige, bless your heart! I do hope you're feeling better now that surgery is over. It is over isn't it? I so hope you don't have to have another one - you've been through enough this year. Here's hoping 2010 offers many rewards, especially from the electric co!

So this is Christmas, and what have I done?
Flitted thru the blogosphere, wreaking some fun.
A very Merry Christmas, and a happy new year,

Paige, you've added much joy to my life.

Thank you.
