checking in . . .

So, just thought I'd share some photos of my interesting weekend . . .

I really did have a nice, private room at the hospital; great view, right??? Actually, it's a pretty spectacular view of Monte Sano mountain. Huntsville is a very beautiful southern city.


Here's a closeup of the foot, after surgery . . .

The red stuff is just where they tried to get as much polish off my toes as possible -- I guess they were wanting to see blood flow in my foot or something or there was some contraption that they had to put on the big toe. That's why it looks so messy.

Here's my right arm, with all the colorful bracelets!! The bruising is all post-accident. It's not an easy thing to put an IV in while the ambulance is moving. Especially since I've got tiny, tiny, uncooperative veins! Anyway, they had to put a new one in on the left side at the hospital, 'cause none of the ones on the right side were working. Between the two, every time I look at my arms I feel a bit like a junkie! Ah well, this too shall pass.


And some happies (oh my, there have been lots). These are from my mommy & daddy . . .

Happy, cheery!

Sorry to heart of your accident. The quilting part should be fun. I need a lot of time to get mine done and doing everything else. Hope your recovery is faster than what they say. Do all the right things and maybe it will. Take Care Chris

I am behind on blog reading and just read about your accident. I'm really sorry to hear this.....but glad to know you came out of it with your sense of humor intact and that, given several weeks, things should be back to normal for you. Who would think that just a few short days after seeing those dancers at Riverdance with their talented feet, you would have to be pretty much off your feet due to an accident! We surely never know what the next day (or hour) may bring!
