Grrrrrrrrrr...


The hubby has been able to work a little bit here and there since his accident. He was working today. Yeehaw!!


But then as he was going to the car after work, he slipped on a patch of ice and landed on his leg. Yep, the already-injured-basically-shattered-held-together-with-metal-plates-and-screws leg. He called to tell me that our sister-in-law was driving him to the hospital and that I should meet him there.


You have got to be kidding me. Fate is simply not that cruel, is it?


Nope. It's not.


Turns out, he didn't re-break the leg. Just a bad sprain. They told him he was extremely lucky. They had been worried that he would knock loose some of his hardware which would have meant surgery...again. So I'm grateful for small miracles.


Unfortunately, though, it has set his recuperation back. He can barely walk...again. So no work for a while. Sigh.


I'm praying for a quick recovery from this set back. I mean seriously, how much can one girl take?


Okay, over and out for now. I'm going to go have a pity party.

My husband broke his ankle & had to have surgery last year. He was out of work for weeks (construction is his job) It was the total pits. I understand your pity party. Hope everything gets better soon.

Hi Wendy, Oh I hope he's back on his feet soon. I have had to baby an injured foot for months now. And now that I'm not limping anymore, I am soooo careful with the shoes I wear, and what I do. Not that it compares but I know a little about how he/you feel. We're not our best when we're not 100 percent. hugs tami

God Bless You!

Thank goodness for small miracles! Glad it wasn't worse and hope he recovers quickly.

Cathy @ The Far Fifty said...

Maybe it's time for you to whip a bubblewrap suit for him! I'm glad to hear it's just a sprain, but that stinks. Hope 2011 is uphill from here!

Richella said...

Oh, honey. . . I'm so sorry!

I am glad, glad, GLAD that it's only a sprain! Thank God!! But, oh, I know you didn't need this setback. Let's all pray that he'll be back on his feet in no time at all.

And maybe so really good, sturdy, won't-slip-on-anything kind of boots would be in order. You think? Is there such a thing?

Finding Home said...

So sorry for your setback, I hope he recovers soon. I am sure he is feeling terrible and that it must burden you both so much to be in these circumstances. I hope for a quick recovery and getting you all back on the right path. By the way, it must make it easier that he is pretty darn cute! Laura

Lisa said...

So sorry to hear about your husband's bad luck. At least it was just a bad sprain, not something much worse. Many good thoughts and prayers are coming your way. Hang in there.
