welcome to my world...

Horray, spring is here! The sound of lawnmowers and weedeaters fills the air in suburbia. The sun is bright and the birds are busy building nests... and I am in bed with an "immobilzer" on my right leg, because I shattered my knee cap (patella) yesterday... No, I am not kidding, not one little bit. Will and I were leaving the grocery store yesterday and I slipped on the bumpy things in the sidewalk that are there to alert blind people that they are entering traffic. I landed right on my knee cap and I have to say it was a horrid experience. Hours in the ER netted me a very ugly set of x-rays and a bunch of pain pills. I will see the orthopedic surgeon (hopefully) on Monday. I feel pretty awful...
My sweet friend Jana came to my rescue, rushing me to the hospital and taking Will for the evening. The husband and kids have been taking good care of me. I'll be okay, just no skateboarding or ballet for a while...

Goodness Dale, i so feel for you as i am certain the pain was excruciating. Bless you,Angel. Thank goodness for pain meds which i really hope are helping.
I imagine you will have the best orthopedic surgeons to put you back together~but it isn't an easy road in the meantime i am sure.
I am thinking about you and sending healing energy your way,Dale.
Rest well and let everyone spoil you.
BIg Big hug,
Tina
