Before!

9/5/08

hmm...

I'm drugged. I'm bored. I can't do a darn thing. My house is a wreck, laundry is piled up, Abby went to school with her hair in her face bc no one would listen to me tell them to pull it up. I changed a poopy diaper one handed, without incident, I've watched 5 movies in 2 days, I took my first shower since Sunday w/ a garbage bag tied on my arm and still came out w/ a soaked splint/wrap, and have mastered opening a childproof medicine bottle using my left hand, and left thigh. It's only been 5 days.....lol.
The surgeon says I will need patience...he obviously doesn't know me!!
Isn't it crazy how one event can change the course of your life?? I was becoming so sure...so strong and making plans and then wham...in one moment it's all changed. Decisions are being made for me. I need help 24/7. I was so independent...now I'm needy.
Blah.

Amber, wow what an xray! That's a bad break!

Are you getting enough calcium citrate? Now more than ever you need to be taking calcium citrate. Maybe even an extra one a day for your body to rebuild your poor arm! I am so sorry you are going through all this! Please remember you are in my prayers.

My son broke his wrist two years ago and had surgery where he had the pins sticking out. (external fixators) He was totally facinated with those pins. LOL He took pain meds for a few days then didn't seem to need them anymore. He healed beautifully and is now an active duty Marine.
I wish you the best!
