One Hell of a Weekend

Good gawd it was a hell of a weekend!

The missus decided to test gravity early Sunday morning. That or she thought she was in a ballet.

She missed or skipped the 4th to the last step coming down to breakfast and broke her right toe. If you look closely, you can see several pieces. The Doc said it was good that the joint was spared so there would be no increased risk for arthritis. She also sprained her left ankle and bruised her left hip, and shoulders and arms.

Sunday was spent in the ER... WAITING.... waiting on x-ray.... waiting on the Dr... waiting on the orthopedist... waiting for the meds to kick in... waiting for the meds to wear off. We got to the ER about 10 am and left at 6 pm. Neither of us had eaten since 8ish Saturday night. We both figured we were lucky we didn't kill each other on the way home.

Now, she sleeps in a drug induced blur that keeps things from throbbing too much but just enough to not let her sleep sound. Aahh the wonders of modern medicine.

Soooo, how was your weekend?

Before...



After...

Oh, my goodness!

As terrible as it was, I'm glad she didn't break anything else.

Any injury to the foot is extremely painful, I know.

I'll bet she's a trooper, though, right? :)

Yeah, she's a trooper... puts up with me, right?

She told me to go to work today, didn't want me hanging around today. (getting in her way)

Dr told her 10 days, no leaving the house. hahaha!!! RIGHT!! She went to class last night and is seriously considering going to dog training tonight.

It's hard to keep a good woman down!!

Yikes! Geesh that looks really painful. Best regards to your wife, I guess she won't be resting long enough for you to treat her to supper, breakfast in bed etc......

Congrats on your hit counter, that's quite amazing.

Well, she got dinner on the couch Sunday and breakfast and lunch in the recliner Monday. As far as staying in bed... HA she wouldn't even stay in bed after herniated disk back surgery!!

10k - Thanks!! I sure didn't think it would happen in less than two years.
