My mom is having surgery on her hands so she can use them better.
She had really bad Carpal Tunnel and her surgeon who did the original surgery had bandaged her arms too tight. My mom didn't know since she was out most of the time and on pain killers. This caused it so she has poor use of her tendons.
I will be helping her for the next 5 days, making sure she doesn't lift anything over 5lbs or overwork herself.
I have my fingers crossed and I hope everything goes well. This new surgeon seems to be personally determined to fix her. She showed him her art she did a long time ago that she no longer can do.
My mom is my Idol and my mentor when it comes to art. She has done such beautiful painting, sculptures, drawings, poems. When she lost the ability to use her hands it almost felt like she lost part of herself. I have secretly seen sketches and things she's tried to do and the frustration I feel off of them when looking at them make me so sad. She can hardly hold a pencil. I just want to see her be able to give the world her art again. Her creativity.
