Well, I've really done it now. I was rearranging some furniture and slipped and fell on my ankle and broke the darn thing!!! Poor hubs, I called him (crying my eyes out, of course, cause it hurt like h-e-double hockey sticks!!) and told him I thought I broke my foot. So he raced home to take me to the emergency room. While I was whaling waiting for him to get home, my survival skills must have kicked in because I pulled myself upstairs to the main floor and somehow put some ice on it. By the way...note to self...GET TO THE GYM!! haha I have absolutely no upper body strength. to make a long story short...The ortho says its more of a chip from the ligaments tearing and that I should be able to hobble around on it in three weeks or so...six weeks for a full recovery. He adjusted the gel cast, patted me on the head and sent me home with some wonderful pain medication. Hubs says he likes those meds, because I laugh at all his jokes again! LOL

It looks like the studio is going to be on hold for at least a week or two...bummer! I have so many great dollies in my head that I would like to create for the holidays. If you get a chance, please keep me in your prayers for a speedy recovery....Wishing you all the best....Susan

Awwwww Susan,
This is not the time to be falling and putting yourself out of commission.

The holidays require our full attention!

All joking aside, I am so sorry that you fell and hurt yourself.

Of course I will say a prayer for your speedy recovery.

Hugs, Audrey
