hi everyone! last weekend my daughter's dog, maya, went missing for 36 hours, and silly us, we assumed that would be the end of the drama during this 3 wk doggie-sitting gig. HA!
while rough-housing with her outside, early friday morning, i was backing up at fast clip and tripped on a rock. while air-borne my instincts decided it would be better to brace my fall with my hand than hit my head. well, my head was spared, but i broke both the ulna and radius bones in my wrist. the radius actually shattered and split. OUCH! DOUBLE OUCH!!
spent two days in hospital, waiting to be operated on to insert pins to re-align bones. had choice of general anesthesia or local - chose local even though process to freeze arm and not have freezing seep into body was weird and grueling - i'll spare you the details.
am back at home, popping pain killers and reduced to brief stints at computer, typing with one finger. i will read your posts but probably not comment for a while. i may post some photographs here and there, but don't expect much for a while.
so, how are you spending YOUR weekend? hope you have been more fleet of foot than i. :-)
how can one sweet, beautiful doggie cause so many problems?
