Successful Op & Recovering!

The operation is success! Thank you, Friends!
My fingers move well, even though the hand is still sore. (*Full recovery will take 3 months.) Hahahaha, my quick sketches have entertained hospital staff and impressed the hand surgeon so much.
OK, my surgery was rather hilarious and very merrily.
In an operating theatre,
I was conscious during the performance. I saw a doctor in the puppy cap, bright orange. "I like puppies!" I said. That doctor smiled, "Thank you!"
I enjoyed hand surgeons' chat over my hand. Although I hardly understood technical jargon, their cheerful voices swept away my concerns. The main doctor was explaining my hand to other surgeons. Although a local anesthesia blocked the nerve in the hand, I felt "stitching." The main doctor's final say was so funny that gave me a big laugh at the end.
After the op, a surgeon asked with a big smile, "Nice? Come again?"
Ahahaha, no thanks! Once is enough.
You see, not scary at all.
Nice doctors cared for me.
(A left hand drawing. Hey, it works well!!
**painted with the right hand.)

Behind my braveness and serenity, there were your cheers and my full trust in the hand surgeon. My hand surgeon clearly explained about these things : diagnosis, prognosis and the pros and cons of a surgery. Interestingly, according to the surgeon, my hand would move better than ever after the operation. Then, the specialist left me the decision. I was respected as an agency. Brilliant.
(My sketch makes the staff & patinets happy!
That's wonderful to see!)

Still my right hand is weak, but my brush "dances" on paper like before. Relieved.
Below, I sketched the musician at a pub. Everybody there loved this work. Ah, what a joy to do painting and drawing!!
The quick decision to have a surgery was right. Time will heal the trauma.
I'll get back to the picture book project.

Really, really thank you, all the Friends, with my special feelings beyond language. YOU, have cheered me up and been worried about me. I could get over the tough things. Also, I've found as long as drawing/painting stays with me, I can bear almost anything. Another happy finding is my work sings for joy that brings others joy, too!

Friends, Happy Painting!

  6. Hi, Judy,
    Thank you! Sketching there sounds crazy? Particularly, I tried to memorize surroundings. It calmed me down in the theatre. In the clinic, we share joy, rather than pain through my sketches! Thank goodness for drawing and painting!!
    Love, Sadami

  11. Loved your post, your sense of humor :) the sketches are a testimony to your talent! - what a neat idea to memorize the surroundings - but then of course it takes special talent and diligence to put it on paper. I wish you speedy recovery

  12. Dear Meera,
    Thank you! Indeed, memorizing the surroundings and thinking of a picture composition was fun on a "table." I'll get well soon!!

  19. Sadami - I've been thinking and thinking about you all this time and am so excited to read your post. All is going well, great! Thank you, thank you for checking in to let us know. The incision area is not as big as I thought - neat little stitches. You are sketching so well too. There's no difference; as confident and lively as ever!
    Continue to grow well!
    Yours,
    Nanina

  20. Congratulations on a successful surgery Sadami! Get well quickly! Best wishes, Dora

  21. Hi, Nanina,
    Thank you! Me, too, thinking of you and looking up your blog, too. My hand surgeon has a good reputation, indeed, so good at it! Nerves pressured in a narrow tunnel at a wrist cause pain and numbness in fingers. So, the goal of a surgery is to open up and gives nerves more space.
    Sketching is fun and I'll enjoy it more than ever! You, too, enjoy art activities.
    Love,Sadami

  24. さだみさんへ

    もう、描けるの?
    1日足りとてじっとしてないわけねー。
    オペの絵がまたいいわー。
    だって、さだみさん寝てるから、
    この視点にはいないわけでしょ?

    また来てね、はいいわねー。笑えるわ。病院がすきな人なんていなし、またきてねなんて冗談がわかるドクターもすごいわ。

    もうすでに、
    やる気まんまんで、なによりです。

  29. Dear HaniHani,
    ありがとう!手術の絵はその翌日に描きました。忘れる前にしたの。実際、主治医の目前でもエサコラ描き続けて居ました。また、手は術後使わないとダメなんだって。意外だったのは左手で描いた右手の絵。様になってて新発見です。
    そう、あのジョークは受けたわあ。 余談ですが、よく両手にこの症状を併発し、左右ともども手術するケース多し、だって。一度でいいワ!
    HaniHaniも一杯描いてねえ。楽しみに読んでるわよう!
    Love,Sadami

  35. Great sketches, Sadami! I'm so glad the surgery went smoothly. It sounds like you had a reliable, skilled surgeon. I've had some experiences with surgery in recent years, so I envy you a little.

  36. Hi,Debbie,
    Thank you and sorry for your experiences. Sadly, patinets' rights are often uder valued in Japan. I really hope a Japanese medical system will respect clients=human beings. My hand surgeon is the key person teaching others. Quite impressive. I hope many learning hand surgeons will follow that doctor!
    Cheers, Sadami

  38. Hola, Francis,
    ¡Muchas gracias! Sí, el "sentido del humor" = VEW objetivo de uno mismo. Me sentí siempre y cuando mantenga un VEW tranquila, con una risa sana se quedaría conmigo. "El músico" se convirtió en mi obra favorita. Voy a trabajar en un proyecto de libro de imágenes.
    Cheers,un abrazo Sadami

    Hi, Francis,
    Thank you so much! Yes, "sense of humour" = objective vew of oneself. I felt as long as keep a calm vew, a healthy laugh would stay with me. "The musician" became my favorite work. I'll work on a picture book project.
    Cheers, a hug Sadami
