Part III: Falling

Hi Friends,
Back again for the third in this series of posts about the last couple of weeks in my life...

Part III: Falling

Sunday had been good, I walked my dogs, had a drive through the foothills, I cooked a nice dinner for me and Sean, and we watched some TV (I can't remember if we were watching this or this, but both are SO good!). I was starting to feel normal again, the grief of the last week starting to subside.

Later in the evening, I dozed off on the couch, when I woke up and got up, my feet somehow didn't get the message and I falled down.

I sat on the floor cursing for a few minutes, then got myself up, turned off the lights and went to bed. The next morning I woke up to this!

OUCH.
See, it's not gross because I put a party hat, shades and a mustache on my toe!

Doctors office, X-rays and air casts - oh my!

I've been working from home this week (because my boss is rad and understanding) and thank goodness too, because my office is huge and I'm supposed to keep off my feet and keep this one elevated. Oh joy. I've spent a lot of time on the couch (rewatched two seasons of Doctor Who and a whole bunch more Supernatural). A lot of time with my laptop open, and a lot of time composing these last three posts. It took forever to find the right words.

I've also spent some time out here, but not enough...


I've been a good patient, actually following doctors orders for once in my life. I did dig into a stitching project though and made a lot of progress, pictures of that soon!

Think I'm going to grab some ice tea and head out to the hammock for a bit, it's a nice day. I hope you're having a nice day, too. I'm going to be poking my nose into all of your blogs catching up in the next couple of days, can't wait to see and hear what you've been up to!
oxo,
Lisa

OMG, that looks horrible! Okay, I love your blue polish and the cute little party hat, but still...that bump thing is huge! Boy, you've really had a rough go the last few weeks. I feel so bad for you, Lisa. I hope your foot gets better quickly. I hope your heart feels better soon too. Love, xoxo Paulette

Ah, so sorry to hear that. Boohoo. Good think you have a hammock. Perfect for elevating.
Be well, Ruthie from Lady B"s Time for Tea

Just finished reading all three posts...so sorry you're going through such a rough time. Life is just so senseless sometimes, I don't think there is any way to understand it, the only way is to keep moving forward like you said. Small consolation, I know. Hope you feel better soon :) Really enjoyed seeing all the great pictures!

Oh My!! I can't believe that happened! Glad you are recovering. Hope your ankle heals quickly. Enjoy the time off, though!

P.S. You can't steal the title of #1 Klutz, though... it's mine! I fall, spill things, break things... always... ALWAYS.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope things are going better for you now.
Last Sept. my ankle looked very similar to yours. I ended up with a metal plate and 9 screws. At least I had tons of stitching time after that!

Ouch!!! I'm so sorry to hear about your injury . . . it looks very painful. I'll be adding you to my prayers.
