The MRI is done, now to wait until next Monday to see what the Dr wants to do from there. I am happy that it is done, and I won't have to do that again ever. To finally get answers and less pain will be an awesome trade off. Granted they believe it's a torn ligament, which one and how bad we will know on Monday (23rd of March). I have a bad feeling I am going to have surgery. I don't like surgery, I actually hate it, but it may improve things for me. So there is that. I had the MRI yesterday, and by doctor's orders, I am not allowed to do any thing for 48 hours. One day down one more to go. But I am going crazier in the meantime. I can't clean up my place, I can't help with the fixing of our vehicles, playing a game? Yeah that doesn't work either. So far I can sit, watch tv and read. Now I have been going through my to read pile pretty quick. Almost done with book 3 of the Wheel of Time series. Reading is great and all but sitting there seeing the projects just sit gathering dust. I want to just pick them up, say "screw it" and just go to town but my hand reminds me pretty quickly that won't fly. Before all this I almost got the butterflies on Pegasus and Butterflies complete. I'd like to finish it before I start on the Pegasus it's self.
I have been looking into a stitching stand. A friend on DA told me of this awesome floor stand made for stitching. It was out of my price range, and sadly still is. But since my Dad is a very good listener I told him about the stands I found that are cheap but are horrible. I think he and my bro might put their heads together and either make one or find one on their many get togethers. I am really wanting to find one that I can use comfortably that will not take up every inch of free space I have atm. I found one that folded up it was in my price range but it was out of stock. UGH! Just my luck.
I even have the Dark Maiden part way finished. I just don't have the hand strength to put it together and finish up the details. I thought about asking my hubby for help but he does so much since I am side lined, it seems like a little too much to ask. So I asked my Bro to help me out (he will when he has the time, he is always busy). I have the pins, the mini drill and some green to fill in spots so that the Dark Maiden can sit without falling over or come apart. I can not wait to finish her. I even bought the sister mini of the Dark Maiden called Dark Maiden, Razig. She looks amazing! Once I finish painting Razig, I may have to make a custom stand for her since it's just a plain black square. Not sure how to do that but I am sure I can think of something. The Dark Maiden has an amazing base, thought about making it a little bigger to help with stabilizing it since it's so top heavy. Not sure if she will be ready for the Scale Fest though.
I want her to be, but with all the issues I have been having lately with my hand. It's looking like I may have to bow out this year. I wanted to "defend" my 1st place in fantasy scale of 25mm. Lord Soth would be please.
