It's Fallinnnnnggggg...


I can't believe how fast this summer flew by. I was so comfortable in the warmer weather, so happy to hold my coffee mug as a normal person would. 

Happy to reach out to another human to grab something without immediately having to retrieve that item off of the floor where it had promptly fell as my now-useless thumbed hand inadvertently released it.

Enjoyed dressing myself when and where I wanted to.

Everything is now falling.

It will take a few days, and probably some broken things, to begin to remember to hold on to items with my 'thumb-less' grasp.

You know, that awkward finger/palm wrap around hold that is impossible to do on a cup of hot coffee or tea.

Having to remember that I can no longer grab two items at a time - one in each hand. Which means twice as many trips back and forth.

One distinct advantage is that I will get lots of exercise this fall and winter! Plus I am able to interact with many more friends and family now in order to complete tasks and chores.

Can anyone lend me a hand?
