Bracing Myself

Sooooo, if you've seen me on Facebook lately, you will know that I am typing one-handed today, and will be for the foreseeable future. I wasn't even running, I promise, but I did manage to fall over again. I also broke my left hand again. Now it looks like this:

I did this after writing the blog for last Saturday, which was fortunate. I was with my daughter, also fortunate for me! She picked me up and ferried me to the ER, where I learned that I have a broken bone on the outside of my hand. This type of fracture is often referenced as a "boxer's fracture," which sounds way cooler than, "I was just walking, and I fell down."

"You should tell people you got that in a fight with Minnie Mouse last week!"

"Were you chewing bubble gum while you were walking?"

"Well, if Sweetie is going to push you over, you should start fighting back..."

No. No. And no. Seriously, I went out to walk with Dollface and her sweet dog,

and somewhere around the 5th step, I put my foot down in a funny way. I did not recover well from the stumble, but at least I did not break the fall with my face.

Two weeks in a cast, typing with one hand, then I'll get back to a brace I can remove for showering (and knitting...shhh!).

Until then, look for shorter blog posts and less knitting than usual. It's just two weeks, so I'm sure I won't go crazy...bwaaahahahahahaha!

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
(And don't fall down. Seriously. Don't. lol!)

  1. Lots of soft gentle hugs! And I'm glad to see you are managing some knitting with the cast (shhh, I won't tell).
