Well, Mommy really DOES need two hands!
Yesterday morning we got up to find we had gotten about an inch and a half of snow. Nothing bad, but not enough to plow. Such was the case at my office. However, when we left for the day, that snow had turned into a sheet of ice about an inch thick. Yikes!!
I couldn't get to my car without crossing this frozen tundra. . .So I ventured forth, one inch at a time. . .about 3 inches into my foray, my feet flew up over my head and SPLAT!! I went down, landing VERY hard on my left arm.
I felt pain, but it wasn't until I was half way home when I realized there was something terribly wrong with my arm.
A mere 40 minutes after I fell, we were checked into the ER and two hours after I was splinted and waiting for my pain meds prescription to be filled. . .
Diagnosis: fractured radious and ulnar bones near the wrist. . .only slight displacement so manipulation not necessary. . .(Thanks be to God!). . .cast to be applied on Monday morning. . .
But two arms are so much nicer for hugs and holding!!!
