Sorry that you have to be away from the computer for a while but do need that your hand has to heal. I'm so glad that you feel I inspired you to be hopeful about the future. There is always hope, sometimes it's just hard for us to find it. But never give up! Hope your hand heals quickly.
So happy your right hand & elbow carpal tunnel surgery went well. Here's hoping your therapy is great and will motivate good things that carry over into all parts of your life. Health and happiness to you!
