Last week I was working at a song all day long. I feel asleep on my computer desk for a few hours. When I awoke my right hand would barely make a limp wrist drop. ER seen me, gave me a splint that at least allows me to drive my stick shift. But I am still awaiting a doctor to take a good look at my arm. Already I miss playing banjo, but it's all the other things, like printing my name, that seem to impact me worse. I ask you pray for me as my right arm is pretty much useless as it now is. I don't know my options, most say a long wait, of upwards to a year with a splint and therapy can fix it- or worse. Please pray for me, as I admit I'm scared.

Here it is Aug 11, 2014 and I am happy to say things are getting better. I was scared, as I read that sometimes a person does not get better from these things (my hospital actually told me this on a paper they gave me). P.T. seemed to of helped, along with the people that prayed for me. I no longer need the cast, and that is way ahead of schedule. My wrist is very stiff and week but I can now move my hand without the wrist-drop I did have. I'm almost to the point of being able to play banjo again (WAHOOOOOOOOOOO!), and after reading that it could of been a year delay in healing or worse, well that makes me happy. Thanks to the ones that prayed for me, I was scared I could never play banjo again, so it was emotional for me.
