It has been awhile since I have posted so I need to update you all. My arm is still not mended all the way. The last time I saw the orthopedic doctor he said that the break still has some mending to go. I have a 3 pound weight limit. There isn't much that I can pick up with that limit. I try to do as much as I can with it and sometimes I forget and try to do things that I shouldn't. It is still pretty painful, the pain meds take the edge off but it never totally goes away. The thing that has me worried is my wrist and hand. My wrist won't pull up like it is supposed to, it just hangs there, like a limp rag. Very frustrating. I can only turn my hand over about half way, and my fingers don't work either. This is all due to the radial nerve being pinched for 2 days. Dr. Bohlen says that if my hand doesn't start working on its own by August he will send me to a nerve specialist in Lincoln or Omaha. I hope that it starts working soon.

A note

I remember what it was like when just starting out in Paint Shop Pro. There are lots of wonderful tuts out there, but most of them are for experienced taggers. It is hard to find a tut if you are a beginner, so I will try to write all my tuts so the beginner can learn and follow along. There will be lots of screen shots to make it easier on you. I apologize to the experienced taggers, but I think that it is good to help out the beginners all we can. Thanks for understanding.
