Still not able to stitch

I would LOVE to have update pics to show... But i am STILL not stitching.  I attempted to stitch this week first night input 7 counted them ... 7 stitches in a piece an ornament.  OMG... i felt my brain and body relax.  Soo the next evening after dinner i sat to stitch... I stitched for 10 minutes solid.  Oh boy i was in TROUBLE.  My arm was hurting... And swelled like. Crazy... I could barely move it for the pIn.  Then the pressure started in my mid arm... I was sooo frustrated... And almost ready to cry. I am so tired of it hurting.  I want to stitch... And allow mind to work... My brain needs to be busy.  
I am ready blogs and seeing so many neat things... And possible future projects for me to do. 
Take care all.  Hope life send you each MANY blessings.

Looking for a chart... And advice.

Hello all.. Not as if i am even stitching... But i am in LOVE with this chart... and am struggling with shops being able to get it.  One person has told me is was a SAL from a few years back that i will have to buy used.  I have been searching EBAY high and low for this and a few BOAF charts and have had absolutely NO LUCK. 

Does anyone out there have a used sal copy they are selling that i may be able to buy?  I just love this mermaid.  I have never stitched a chart by this designer and know nothing about them... How are the charts and designs to stitch?  I am silly to even be looking when i can not stitch for several weeks yet... But i just fell in love with this when i saw it.

Thank you for looking for me.

Just an update..not able to stitch

Wednesday April 29th i had the surgery on my elbow. It was for tennis elbow that i have been treating for near 2 years now.    I have since found out that the surgery was way more involved.  The surgeons have told me that the tendon was near torn off.  They went in for a tendon release... Ended doing a tendon re structure surgery.  The have cleaned and cleared the elbow... And stretched the tendon and tacked it to the back of my elbow... All I can say is...OUCH!!!!!  This has been the most painful surgery I have ever had.  They are telling me that I am going to be taking more time to heal... But they will have to see how therapy goes.   I am scared to do much with it... I am afraid that it will be hurt.  I have no grip and I have to still think hard to get my fingers to move and my hand to grip and release.  It is almost scared.  The pain is the worse part... Omg... It is extreme. I was told it was painful.... But did not imagine this.  

This is almost one week from surgery... As the huge bandage/splint came off.  I had a terrible time with swelling so the wraps came off a few days early. 
Right before surgery I was on Ebay and won this little cutie... I am hoping to fix it up with a special pin cushion and load my stitch goodies into it... I have wanted one for so long and this allowed me to get one... I can not wait to get the elbow healed and start using my new toy!  
I am going to end my post with a proud mom moment... 
This is my 2 babies... They ran in the 5k race that was part of the events for The Flying Pig here locally. This was my daughters first... And my sons 2nd race... But the more important part of this is that they did this TOGETHER!  They motivated each other and finished this race together!!!  
My daughter at the last minute threw together pink tutu's for them to wear... We are going to add to them and make them even fuller for the next race.  
Way to go guys!!! I am so proud of you!!!!!
