Well I had my wrist consult yesterday. From the exam the damage is inconclusive. But the ultrasounds are definitely indicating a severed tendon. He has not choice but to go in and do a complete exploratory to find the damage and repair it. He said I could have a number of things going on like nerve damage, vascular repairs he would do along with any ligament or carpal bone hacking I might have done. It was a pretty hard blow to the wrist with a very sharp knife.
He was empathetic in my plight and having my long awaited ankle surgery postponed because of this accident. So he has squeezed me into his surgical rotation - NEXT FRIDAY so no waiting 3 months!!! Although I am not looking forward to any surgery it was the best bit of news I have had in since my other surgery was cancelled. Now I can start to plan things again.
I am working on an idea to get my Orthopaedic guy here at home to take the Ankle guys referral back so I can get my knee looked at in the next few weeks. Then they can decide what to do with that instead of waiting for August 23 with this other Knee y in Toronto. That way my ankle guy can make a decision whether to have the knee done before or after my ankle surgery. (if the knee even needs surgical intervention.) If it is some sort of therapy I need then I can start that asap.
I have decided to at least see if I can take a few classes from my College course on line for now, and once my surgeries are all done I will then apply to go full time back to school and finish up what I have to.
So I am thinking of a Road Trip being in order for the month of June!! Would love to do the MI OH NC Loop Anyone have any ideas or dates or places that the Rivettes might do a women's power solo weekend???
ModPod is now under full construction. I have ran around trying to get the laminate matched up - even though I can get it from a dealer the freight up here to Canada is ridiculous!!! It will be cheaper for my cabinet guy here to find it for me.
If he can't - well I just might have to do that road trip to Jackson Centre after all and pick up my parts from there.
I would like to do my counters as well but I might just hold off for a bit on that and see how the new L - seating works out first.
Peter is making the main pieces, Hmm I asked him to show me how to build this but well uugg it did not go down too well so he is taking over. And I am left with the other part of the reno job...it's called team work LOL.
Worked out the cushion sequence and will order up the foam tomorrow. I am heading out to get the new upholstery as well and will start on the new curtains too. Hopefully have the curtains done by the end of the weekend.
I have a red fleck counter in mind, but I am also thinking may a white counter with small red and black flecks in it so that it is not too dark but not totally white either.
I am still looking for new blinds and not sure what to do yet. But I do like the ones that have the aluminum valance, they put in the new airstreams - anyone know where you can get those other than from Airstream...
Hopefully it will be done by the end of May.
The colour/texture scheme I am looking at.
this for the curtains and the new privacy curtain as well. The front curtains I will line in black as I found out that at night with the lights on I give a real great puppet show to those who have a late night walk - OMG!!!!
This for the seat cushions - I like the idea of contrasting with both colour and textures instead of a sea of material all the same.
And here is the beginning of Peter's handy work. This will be laminated with the marble black laminate used in the current European models - that is what was used in the 05 CCD Christopher deam models. I like that we decided to curve it to match the night stand and the large closet that make the visual triangle as you come in the door.
As I will loose my handy spot on the wheel well with the previous open seating, I had him make me a cubby hole to pop things like my gloves, level and sweeper handy to reach still. I will still have under the seat storage. But this seat will be one heck of a lot more comfortable than the subway seating that was in it.
I am running the bench on the wall the full length to the desk 6' - thus when the bed slide comes out it will be a full 8' long!!! A little thinner than I wanted at 40" but can not go wider or you could not open the bathroom door with the bed out. As it was with the existing system you can not open the door all the way. So now when I am not using the extra bed which I barely do I will have all the room in the world when I come out of the shower.
I have still to come up with my table design and stowing system...any ideas???
