i've been out of commission

life really threw me a curve ball this week. i was at the shore cleaning the kitchen floor and made a big mistake by walking on it wet and down i went. i fractured both of my elbows and they casted both of my arms. this happened on tues. today i went to an orthopedic surgeon who took the cast off my right arm, thank god, only a hairline fracture, (now i can use the bathroom myself), oh the little things in life. but the bad news is that i need surgery on my right elbow. so that one remains in a cast. these last 48 hours have been hell, but it did take my mind off of my ras. now, at least i can somewhat type. wish me luck with the surgery. supposed to get a couple of pins put in it.

I am so sorry this happened to you. I know when I fractured my kneecap in Feb. it did take my mind off my daughter and forced me to slow down a bit. But having to have help to shower was a b*tch Prayers that your surgery will be successful and that you will quickly heal. Hugs, Marle

Oh my gosh, Louise, how terrible! Last summer my mom broke her right wrist and her left shoulder. She also had to have pins put in her wrist. She took a while to recover, but she is doing well now. Hang in there!

oh Louise, bless your heart!
I am so sorry you had such an accident.
Here's a prayer that you will get well, and that surgery goes perfectly.

Ouch....Oh my goodness, how terrible. Isn't it amazing how those freak accidents can happen so quickly? Saying prayers that the surgery goes well and recovery is as painless as possible. I'm glad at least the one was just a hairline and you will be able to use one arm.
