My Left Foot--it's broken :(

I didn't plan it this way, but I missed White Wednesday this week. I had a little accident and broke three bones in my left foot on Tuesday. No fun at all! So I am supposed to be off my feet for awhile. I'm wearing a boot on my left lower leg for now and trying to use crutches, but I've never had crutches before and it's taking awhile to get the hang of it. In my case, they should probably be called "klutzes." Oh, this will be tricky! The kids go back to school this Monday, so the timing is really unfortunate! I'll try to post something in a couple of days. At least I don't need my feet to blog :)

Jenny, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I'll be praying for a fast and smooth recovery. Hope your family will wait on you for a change! Take care!

You poor thing!!! That would drive me crazy. Broke my toe once but had to hobble around and still work everyday because it was SPRING time....but staying home would have been worse!
Take good care of yourself.

Glad to see that you got to the computer. Steve was fixing to put dinner on the table when I called.

We have much to discuss. Get the swelling down first.Then have hubby get you some things from Vitamin Shop (by Target) for extra speedy healing.: Bones, Flesh, & Cartilage by Nature's Way, Arnica Montana cream and pellets, & Rescue Remedy cream and maybe spray.

Remember when I had the stress fracture & they told me it would take 4-6 MONTHS , if I even healed at all?... and I healed in under 3, and very possibly under 2 ? That's when the Dr. asked me again what I was doing.

And my neighbor healed in record time when he broke his ankle,(in multiple spots), in a motorcycle accident, by using these items.

Luckily your recuperation time is way shorter than for my stress fracture. You will be up and at'em in no time:)! When the kids start school, plant yourself in the family room or living room!...somewhere close to fun stuff when you are up to it.

And don't worry about the house!

PS- Larissa asked her friend Krissy about helping you if you decide to do B>Days , and need extra help. Of course, we will all be there as well. Ken even offered to sit at your booth.And of course, my home is your castle if you require or get tired.:)

Either way, heal first! xo Lydia

PS- Sevan called me out for an auction. We had so much fun!...and got so many cool freebies. What a blast. It's local. Scored some cool pieces.
