Toot Your Horn Tuesday -- My latest antics!

This is me - today!

Isn't this just lovely?? If you look very closely at the top of the arm... near the "ball" you can see a slight line running vertically. That is the break. I can see now why the doctor said a couple of times how fortunate I was that the break did not separate, thus requiring surgery. So, I will be laying low for a bit. Have had to cancel my trip to Austin... which is a huge disappointment to me. Why do they make slings so ugly and uncomfortable??

What happened was we went bowling with our church friends. I had not bowled in years. I didn't realize that the trend was to oil the lanes. Way too slippery for this very unathletic person. I slipped big time on the lane and landed on my shoulder. It's my right shoulder and thank goodness I am left-handed!

My husband is in Mexico on business until Saturday so I think I'm just going to vegetate for the week.

Is this what they call a "stay-cation" meaning to just lay low at home and do nothing?? No fun!

So sorry to hear about your mishap. Gosh, last month I was couch ridden with a slightly dislocated sacroiliac joint, which caused major pain from my lower back down to my knee. The pain was worse than labor. So I can relate to having to rest. Heck, I couldn't move. I chose to use the time to watch old movies and catch up on reading. I hope you heal real soon.

Oh Karen, you poor sweetie! I am sure you are in such pain. Take care of yourself and try and relax...ahem, knowing you, that is hard to do!
