Broken and sad

Today I broke my leg. I am the clumsiest person I know. Next week I was supposed to go to Atlanta to the gift show and now I cant go. OK so how did it happen... Walking out of a store and twisted one ankle going down stairs, then in an attempt to save myself from falling I twisted the other leg and snap. Gross I know. And horribly painful. Tears. I drove myself to the doctors and just knew what they would find. Luckily my awesome Kate helped me and as a matter of fact she is SO awesome, that when we came home she took down the Christmas tree (what I was going to do this afternoon) and cleaned up all the needles. xoxo
So I will be out of commission for a bit.

That is awful Janell! Jez and I just spoke with you a short while ago! I hope you get better real soon and glad you have such a sweetheart of a daughter to help you out! Look on the bright side...you don't have to fly anymore!! :o) But I'm sure you'd be more than happy to take a plane ride then have a broken leg. :o( I'll be thinking good thoughts & sending them your way until you get better!

I am trying to set up my emails through my laptop and am having issues. If I get that going then its easier to email from bed. I appreciate all the well wishes :) Thanks everyone! Makes it nice knowing how sweet all of you are. Plus the pain killers are not so bad either! Maybe I can think up some creepy creaters while floating on this fluffy cloud :)

OMG! This is terrible! Perhaps this is some sort of blessing in disguise. When I had to be down and out because of back surgery, I really had time to think about a lot of things. It can be a restorative period for you!

thank you everyone for your well wishes and support. Feels like all of eternity that I have been resting in bed. Its been 3 days. I am searching for a new doctor. The one I saw was just awful. Spent a whopping 3 minutues with me. I left with no crutches, no boot, no instructions. As I sat in the car waiting to leave he walked by and spit on the ground. Health care at its best. I broke my fibula which is the smaller bone that runs along the tibula. Which is probably why they did not cast me. My ankle is swollen as well as my foot. The pain is manageable as long as I stay off the foot. So that is the update on this long gloomy Monday. Hopefully things will get better soon. xoxo

Oh you poor thing! I'm so sorry! I hope your recovery goes well though!

My dad broke his leg twice...once trying to do the cat's cradle on the rings in high school, and the other when he finally and reluctantly went DISCO rollerskating with my mom. Oh, the 70's! I was probably 3 at the time. They went to the ER, but didn't set it in a cast yet...he had to come back in the morning for that. My morning ritual was run into my parent's room and jump on my Dad for a good morning hug. I remember so clearly starting to do just that and they both screamed "NO!!!!" so loud that I froze. I don't remember doing it much after that.

Hugs to you!
