The photographs further on in this post were taken this week from my front porch and back deck.
Thank you all for your well wishes and expressions of concern. X-rays last week reveal the bones in my arm/wrist are healing well. The pain has diminished, mobility is still a problem (e.g. put my back out trying to hook up my bra!). However, the big question is ... can my marriage survive this handicap!!!
The injury and lack of mobility have put a strain on both dh and I, and on the relationship. :-)
Here are a few things you could have heard at our place this week:
"Eeeek, don't wash the dirt off your shoe in the kitchen sink!"
"What's the problem with eating beans and toast again tonight?"
"Yes, when you make a meal you do have to time things so that everything is ready at the same time!"
"Yes, when you fold clothes and put them away, they should be completely dry!"
"No, I don't want to play spa, blow dry your hair, or give you a manicure!'
"No I don't think I should scratch inside the cast with a long, jagged, metal barbecue skewer!"
"How many jars have I opened for you this week?"
"Too bad you can't join me in savoring this superb bottle of wine, since you are on pain meds."
"I was sure you said that women dressed only in an arm cast turned you on!"
"Are we having fun yet?"
