An uneventful (and therefore relaxing) day

So today was pretty uneventful. The pain is back under control, and I hope to not have to mention it again for a loooong time :) I sold some more earrings, which is always exciting, and I made some more as well.

I still have to re-take photos of some stuff to include the new backgrounds, and I need to take photos of some new stuff. I've got the craft show coming up on June 9 and I'm making stuff in an attempt to sell a bunch of stuff. I hope it goes well, but I'm trying to not get my hopes up too high - I don't want to wind up disappointed.

I guess it's worth telling you that the lymphedema is back in my left hand. It's still quite mild but I'll have to wear my sleeve and stuff and start doing the exercises they gave me. I think I have some smaller generalized swelling as well, probably due to the heat. It just gets worse in the hand because they took lymph nodes out of that side back in 2000 when I had my first cancer. I have swelling and pain in the area of the surgery last year. Funny, I'd thought that the tenderness there was due to the cancer, but the tenderness hasn't gone away since they took the cancer out of there. Strange.
