Left Arm 3.2

Here is the current upgrade to my Left Arm. I took the picture with some flowers to make up for the scary x-rays I posted of Left Arm 3.0

In case you're wondering, I'm considering my original equipment Left Arm 1.0
The 2008 upgrade to Left Arm 2.0 was carpal tunnel release.

This latest version features a radius 5mm shorter, flanked with a titanium plate and fourteen screws, AND the nifty pink cast I just got today!

It'll change again in a couple weeks... you know how those pesky upgrades are!

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm thankful for:
my hardworking, sweet hearted husband
my sister's exceptional cooking & doctoring skills
my brother's much appreciated care package
the love of family & friends
and modern medicine.


These are x-rays of my left wrist taken during/after surgery.

I'll be driving the metal detectors at airports crazy!

That little bone is named the lunate.

The little black one in the middle. It should be white like the rest of the bones. Instead it looks like a blank spot, because the lunate in my left wrist isn't getting enough blood. How obscure! Of all the thousands of things that could go wrong, what an odd ailment! Kienbock's disease. Humph.

Back around 2003 I created my original website for some of you may remember it's nice, clean layout and easily navigated portfolio pages. It was really easy to build using Mac software and hosted through .mac, and blah, blah, blah-yeah-you-know-I-love-Macs. Last year when I found myself unemployed, I had a financial panic attack and didn't renew my .mac account or pay to keep my domain name.

When I came to my senses, I wanted my domain name back. After much ado, is mine again. Still trying to cut corners, I've been re-building my site with the freebie software provided by the discount registrar. It makes me want to gouge my eyes out! Oh Apple 'websites for dummies' I miss you!

It's not finished, but humor me PLEASE and go take a look. The discount software is bringing out my inner demon... just ask Michael. Check it out, gimmie some clicks (so I don't have to see those other posers when I google 'zulustudio') and I'll have the warm fuzzies like a good bunny.

This is Pittsburgh Steelers Country, Baby!

Michael's got guests coming for game time... hopefully the Steelers will bring their A-game and I will supply the A-nachos! I make some kick-a$$ nachos, kids -- so if you're in the area round kick-off, stop in!
WooHoo! Go Steelers!

I'm trying to think of it as "Jewelry for my Bone"

So far, it's not really working.
