Christmas Sled Stocking #11

Filled in a few gaps last night. 
I'm seeing my GP tomorrow to get a referral for a cortisone injection into my shoulder. Hopefully, I won't have to wait too long for it and, hopefully, the pain responds quickly and disappears!
Happy Stitching,

Shoulder Update

No stitching done last night as my shoulder was quite painful after the Osteopath appointment. At least now I have a name for what I have - bicep tendonitis. I'm going to investigate getting a cortisone injection which will hopefully provide relief and allow me to do the exercises I have been given to better strengthen the area hopefully to avoid a recurrence.
Some good has come out of the whole mess - I now have a standing desk at work so I can sit or stand throughout the day which has been great. I'm also getting an ergonomic upright mouse which should help too. Work has been quite supportive which has been pleasantly surprising.
So hopefully, only a short amount of time before I can get proper relief - maybe next week...

Thank you for your prayers and support. I'm dying to get back into my stitching with proper regularity! 
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie

Christmas Sled Stocking #8

I'm happy with my progress over the last few nights. No big chunks of colour on this one - lots of tiny bits in many colours - but I know the end effect will be amazing.
Today I have an appointment with an osteopath who I really hope can help with my shoulder situation. If you're so inclined, I'd appreciate prayers for some real pain relief and to find out what the cause of it all is so it can be fixed. I just want to be back to normal again.
Happy Stitching,

Christmas Sled Stocking #7

Well, I had a big week up in Queensland performing the annual library stock-take, and although I took my stitching with me, I didn't get any done. The lighting in the motel was terrible, and I was too tired anyway at the end of the day - I didn't want to make a mistake to then just have to pull it out again.
Monday and Tuesday nights produced this update:

Christmas Sled Stocking #6

Pleased with my weekend progress (mostly on Sunday) filling in the bow. Friday night I saw 'Going in Style' starring Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine - it was enjoyable with some funny moments. Saturday night we had the footy at Etihad and it was a close match - we won by 5 points so that was exciting.
Tomorrow morning I'm off to the Gold Coast for the annual QLD library stock-take - can't wait - I love my stock-take! Now that I am Coeliac and on an insulin pump, I have so much more stuff to take - it took me 2 days to make sure I had everything I needed and wasn't leaving anything behind. Looking forward to next weekend and spending some time with my sister and her family. I've got my stitching packed so hopefully I'll get time to do some and that my shoulder pain will ease off - it has been giving me real trouble lately, even with anti-inflammatory pills, anti-pain pills, and physio and myotherapy sessions... When I get back I'm going to try osteopathy.
Happy Stitching,
Kerrie
