broken...

i did break my wrist. i was floored that it was really broken. truly i was sure they were going to tell me i had mildly sprained it . Hum. i broke the radius bone in a nice clean break, and not all the way through the bone so that is a good thing or they would have had to pin it. what a crazy thing to have happened. how did it happen you ask? well, i was playing with one of my older sons, he was lying on the couch and i was pulling on his arm and he was pulling on mine....you know the old tug of war thing...anyway we slipped apart and i went flying backwards and as near as i can remember, i think i must have tried to catch myself and i landed with my hand under me, on the rocks that surround my wood stove. all of my, hummm, weight on my bent hand....it was to swollen to cast, but is in a hard splint. when it's in a cast, and my thumb is free, i will be able to do a lot more. you should have see the slice of bread i cut for dh's sandwich today...lol. it was a little thick on one end! the break doesn't hurt too much so that's a blessing i think. i am not much good at slowing down! lol. i think i may need to have a brown cast.....maybe it will show the painting, coffee, and wood staining and dirt less! LOL there is the promise of rain later this afternoon, that would be very welcome. have a great day everyone! ♥

If we lived a little closer I'd bring you a casserole! You poor dear. It must be hard to type! Well, I say milk this for all it's worth. Let the kids wait on you for a few days. Mimi

Owch! But at least it's the radius and not all the way through, If you're going to break your wrist there are worse bones to break. Remember ibuprofen is your friend. but don't take over 3200mg in a day or you'll box your kidney's.
