HOW I SPENT ELECTION DAY


IGNORE THE LAMPSHADE BEHIND THE XRAY AND THE CAMERA FLASH ON IT
SORRY FOR ALL CAPITALS BUT IT IS A CHOICE OF CAPS OR ALL SMALL BECAUSE OF THIS - YEP IT IS MY RIGHT ARM - WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR THE EXTRA LOUSY TYPING.


CAN'T KNIT PROBABLY FOR AWHILE -CAN'T COOK, DRIVE, SHOWER --WELL TO BE HONEST CAN'T DO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING

I HAVE TO TRY TO NOT SHIFT THE BONES - THEY ARE A BIT CLOSER THAN THE PICTURE ABOVE FROM SOME PRESSING,MOVING TWISTING BY DOCTOR AND I HAVE A BRACE THAT COMPRESSES IT TOO. TRYING TO AVOID SURGERY AND PLATES BECAUSE THE RISK OF NERVE DAMAGE IS HIGH BECAUSE OF WHERE AND HOW THE BREAK IS - IT WILL HEAL - NOT AS WELL AS THEY WOULD LIKE -THEY WOULD LIKE THE BONES TO BE CLOSER ETC BUT EVEN IF IT IS THICK AND NOT QUITE STRAIGHT AND TAKES LONGER THIS WAY IT SEEMS TO BE THE WAY TO GO.

SO NO I DIDN'T GET IN TO VOTE - THIS HAPPENED AT THE POLLS - BUT HIMSELF DID GO BACK WHEN HE DROPPED OFF A SCRIPT FOR PAIN MEDS FOR ME AND WHILE WAITING FOR THE SCRIPT TO BE DONE ==

BTW MY HEAD IS A MESS TOO - THAT ALSO HIT THE BRICK WALL AND THE BRICK WALL REALLY WON!

Poor Rho! Looks like a lot of reading ahead for you!

AlisonH said...

I am SO sorry. And sitting here thinking, but, but, but... They should have given you a paper ballot to send back from the doctor's via your hubby or something! I can wish. Crum.

Beth said...

Oh my gosh! You really banged yourself up! I hope you've got some good drugs and aren't feeling any pain.

Sending you healing, pain-free thoughts and hugs!

Eek! I'm so sorry, Rho. I hope it heals well and that you're not in too much pain.

Rho-so sorry about your accident! Hope you are doing better today than yesterday, and each day is better.

TGL said...

Oh, no! Baby Luann and I wish you a speedy recovery. Hope you are able to find a few fun things to do while you are laid up. What a bummer!

omg. Rho! How could you??? (I know that sounds indignant, but, I am. How could the universe do this to you???)

Do you need anything? (Gentle hugs and positive healing vibes are head your way.)

Any time line?

What HAPPENED for heaven's sake? Darling Rho, what HAPPENED? Dear girl, warm love and tender care flooding your way from Ireland.

(Do take care typing with one finger won't you?)
