Life Changes In An Instant
Finally got in to see the doctor yesterday and had an X-Ray and I have a transverse fracture of the ankle. Looks like I will be laid up for a while. Presently they are having me keep the ankle elevated to reduce the swelling so tomorrow I can get a more permanent cast done. Maybe now I will be able to keep this blog sight a little more current and up to date.
You never know what is coming your way - start the morning normally and next thing is you are in a pneumatic air cast and waiting for a bone to heal. When you live in the mountains it is never a good time to be laid up, especially when you heat with a wood stove. Fortunately I have a caring wife who can handle many of the tasks but I do regret that it will place a hardship on her. Several years ago she fell out of our camper and broke three bones in her foot and was laid up for several weeks so I know what it is like to have extra tasks placed upon you. I should have been more careful and wearing Croc's outside this time of year is pretty foolish. Lesson learned..
