New Year's Day was a day of first for me...first x-ray, first CAT scan, first crutches, first cast...... On New Year's Day I was in a pretty bad car accident. Fortunately, everyone involved is OK and will mend...both cars are more than likely totalled though. I have to say, I think my BMW saved my life. Without getting into the gory details, I have two fractured ankles - a double on the left with a cast on and a chip type on the right with a walking boot. I will have to have surgery on the left. I am already getting a little anxious about this, but then I just remind myself that it could have been much worse. I was alone, so neither of my boys were involved and I will mend. Eveyone keeps reminding me that I get to get a new car, too....to be honest, that is the furtherest thing from my mind right now.
My boys have been taking very good care of me. I am thankful that John has a job with some flexibility and has been able to be home these first few days. Jarek has been my helpful little (not so little anymore) man. And my fur babies...
Thor is being very protective and not leaving my side much. Colonel is afraid of the crutches, but tries to stay close by.
I wish I could say this was the only 'bad' stuff going on in 2013, but so far it is just not a good year for a lot of people I know. I am praying that these challenges are just that...challenges to help us work through and realize all the wonderful things we do have.
Wishing everyone a new year filled with health, love and success.
