repairs


I have four distinct fractures in my Radius and one in my Trapezium.
The surgeon will stabilize the Radius with stainless steel.
Finding the fifth fracture near my thumb was tricky as was being able to locate the break in K's Scaphoid...which required an MRI.
My surgery is scheduled for 11:30, should last about 90 minutes and then I'll spend a couple of hours in recovery.
The CEO has donated car service to and from the hospital which we have gladly accepted.

Thank you for all your good wishes,

bb

Try to keep your chin up in these early weeks while the doctors do their magic and give yourself time to rest and heal. Spirit counts for a lot in such recoveries and I think you and K have that in abundance. xoxo

Youze two will be in my head all weekend - pay no attention to the other stuff that might be there. I'm so glad nothing sounds terribly permanent or debilitating. And I'm glad to hear the boys are doing a good job taking care of you both.
How nice of your CEO to offer the car service.
Hang in there BB, you and K will get better, I promise. Please don't cry, it breaks my heart. Just celebrate the fact that it wasn't mush worse. You both need to kick back and mend.
Know that if I lived there I'd be doing the cooking - the cleaning not so much. That's why you had kids, remember.

Scot, I have a feeling that you and I would be a great team to help alas we're freaking far away ...
