I'm coming along slowly, as well (G!). In fact, at work, I'm finally mostly able to do everything, and have had sore hands the past couple of days from spending the better part of each day using them so much - a *good* thing. It's not "Ouch! That hurts! I can't do that!" pain, but rather "Okay - I'm putting muscles to use that haven't been seeing this kind of steady use in a while" soreness, if that makes sense. So I consider it a part of the road to recovery.
Thanks for asking!
