The view from here

This is the view that *I* have from where I sit:

  You see, we just can't seem to get enough of the wonderful hospitals around here!  I missed out at being with Moira so much I thought I needed my own turn to see how it all works :-)

Yeah, pretty cool huh?  NOT!!  That my friends is a photo of an immobilized knee.  A broken knee cap to be particular.  I am to make sure that I keep my leg *straight* at all times.  Emphasis comes from from the nurse practitioner that I saw. 

I really don't feel like typing out the whole story in detail, but here are the key points:

We were in Target looking for shoes for Flannery, we were moving on from there and Jonah went to run ahead of me.

I tripped, with the baby in my arms. 

I did all I could to try to keep the baby from hitting the floor.

I fell on my left knee.

Baby still got a bonk on the head.  But he is fine, we had him checked out at the hospital as well.

My patella has a crack that runs from one side straight to the other.  I risk it snapping in half should I bend my knee. 

Lots and lots of fun......that is a joke :-)

All of our summer plans, what ever they might be, are now totally changed!  Lickety split just like that.

The end.

OUCH! Poor thing...I feel so terrible and will pray that you keep your knee straight, everything heals perfect (and quickly)!! And here I have been complaining about my stupid broken second toe, this really put that in perspective. I hope it's not as painful as that sounds...BIG HUG!!! xo
