Another one bites the dust

So my view for the past day and a half has been this:

On monday night, while I was waiting for my photos to upload for my post on NYC, I asked Stephane if he'd like to go out in the garden and throw around the new nerf (american) football that we had bought in Boston. We played for about half an hour, me in the deep end making some spectacular catches which Stephane will back me up on. We then decided to switch sides. About 2 minutes into that I went running to catch the ball, my left foot fell into one of the many holes hidden in the field behind our house, my body went falling one way and my foot stayed planted in the hole.

A call to the ambulance later (with a very charming Stephane telling 999 that his "partnairs ahnkle his beeg, lahk a bubbal") Stephane finally got them to come over. Wheel chaired out of my house sucking on laughing gas for the pain.

Luckily one of my friends at the hospital is doing night shifts this week and so I had a friendly face take care of me, which made all the difference.



It started raining when we got home and I had to crawl through my front door with it pissing down on me and all the neighbors staring out their windows.

So If anyone has any pointers on walking with crutches let me know. I'm not very good at it.

On the plus side, my arms and back will get super toned from having to get up and down stairs on my butt.

Ouchie! Poor thing. Sounds like quite an ordeal. Stephane had better be taking good care of you, or else...
Feel better!

PS. American football sucks!

he's taking the best care of me - couldnt ask for more! He made my lunch before he went to work this morning, wrapped in the fridge and left me a little love note.

Sorry to hear about the injury. Not as bad as yours but I'm going through some knee issues from soccer. Being immobile is a pain!

Hope you're feeling better soon!
BTW, I got a new blog, so you can update mine on your site if you want ;)
it's suzanneinnewyork.blogspot.com

Happy crutching!

Eesh. Doesn't look good. What's the update? Are you back at work yet?

Trish said...

Ouch! Darlin' -- you aren't supposed to step into holes as you're running for a pass. Have you lived abroad too long to remember?

I'm so sorry you're hurting. What bone did you break?

P.S. Miss you.

P.S. Again - Crutches suck.
