My muse is visiting!

Today my muse returned. It felt so good because I have not felt much like creating anything lately. Today I sculpted some things but I also got started on a doll repaint project that I have been thinking about for a very long time.

Here is a before shot and another after her make-up has been stripped off and her head scalped. Tonight I will remove the hair plugs.

work in progress before and step one

I am hoping my muse hangs around at least through Tuesday. Wednesday I will be having surgery on my shoulder. The first physical therapy session is scheduled for Thursday. From now until then I want to create as many things as I possibly can. Or at least have fun trying to.

Deck has been reshuffled

I was at the hospital at 5 am this morning. Unfortunately even with the antibiotics my white cell count only went down 3 points. It is still too high to risk surgery. The chance of possible infection would be too great. So after laying there for 3 hours with an i.v. in my arm I got to come home with instructions.

Now instead of getting the impacted wisdom tooth removed after my shoulder surgery, it will have to be done first. After that another blood count will be done and if the white cell count is still too high after that my surgeon is sending me to an infection specialist. :(
Guess it is a good thing my shoulder got so bad I wanted to get it fixed or I would not have known about any of this until the infection had possibly spread to my bloodstream.

Just trying to look on the bright side.
