Bits and bobs...

Monday, April 24, 2006

Mr. C broke his elbow (see yesterday's post for context). It took most of the day at the emergency room for him to have this diagnosis confirmed. Lovely health care system we supposedly have here. The doctor apologized and said it was an unusually busy day. Mr. C confirmed this with tales of a man with a screw driver clear through the palm of his hand, another whose foot had been run over by an ATV and so on and on. So now 4-6 weeks of recovery. He does not have a cast, as the break is in a location right on the elbow joint, where a cast would do no good, so he must be extra careful. No picking up either child, etc. etc. Sigh.

I will not be blogging too much this week, I don't think. Work is terribly busy, the children need extra care and attention (i.e. teething, round two), Mr. C's elbow is broken, and I am finding myself without a free moment. Ahh, Life.

    My goodness--I hope your husband's elbow heals well. That's tough about the cast.

    I'm sure you will do amazing. Just continue to look out your beautiful window view. Listen to your favorite music. And, know that all is well and that it will settle down soon.

    Take care.

    Thanks for all your kind comments, friends....things are very hectic to say the least, but I will be back and reading your blogs again soon.

    Mr. C was simply fishing with a rod and reel for trout and gaspereaux; his father slipped and Mr. C tried to catch him and ended up on his elbow.

  1. Blogger christina said:

    Oh dear! Not very good news. That must be painful for Mr. C and a bother for you having to look after eveyone and everything on your own. Hang in there!
