I am on the road to recovery but still have a long way to go. I had to get a metal rod inserted into my arm and although I do have movement in my hand now I am still unable to use my arm except to hold things under 5 lbs. I've had three surgery's going into my fourth surgery to fix my elbow that is now dislocating. The doctors believe my body has been rejecting the metal rod which also makes me more susceptible to another infection.
I've never felt more grateful to be alive. I have a new perspective on life; things that used to bother me are now trivial and although this experience has and continues to be one of the hardest things I have ever experienced I am grateful to be emerging from it with a new clarity and joy for life. This past month I have been able to get back in the studio and start making new work which I am so excited about ! Below is a small sample of what I have been up to.
