The Humerus Report
How'd it happen? I got up from my swiveling office chair to do something, and as I stood up and took a step forward, my foot got caught in the dangling cord of my mouse. Next thing I knew, I was flying through the air, then landing HARD on the floor. I knew right away I had done something b.a.d. as the pain was intense. I also hit my head on the wall when I fell, but that was minor compared to my arm pain.
I managed to get up after a few minute of laying on the floor whimpering. Neither Pia or Katie was close enough to get home to help. I decided to risk embarassment (cuz I could've been wrong!) and called 911. The fire dept sent out an aid car and a fire truck. Since Steve showed up around then, they decided that I could get down to the ER without having to go in the aid car.
We headed down to Sacred Heart, where we waited, and we waited, and we waited...3+ hours after we arrived, I finally got into a treatment room, where I finally got some pain killers (yay). They give me orthopedist name.
Ortho office doesn't want to see me for 10 days, so I'm toughing it out till next friday. I can knit a tiny, teeny bit for a few minutes at a time. I can read. I can watch tv. Everything else HURTS. And I have the mother of all bruises on my left arm.
That's the latest on my broken wing. It sucks, this is NOT how I had planned to spend my summer vacation!
