I have some sad news. I was a victim of our latest snomeggedon. I fell yesterday in the snow while letting the dogs out. I thought for sure I had broken my wrist, but the x-rays did not show any breaks. The doctor said it is a severe sprain, although I have to go in for more x-rays next week, just to make sure there are no hairline fractures. The doctor called it “Foosh” accident – fell on out-stretched hand. I have to wear a brace until I go back to the doctor next week, if not longer. It is my right hand and I am very right hand dominant. It is very swollen, and extremely sore and tender, and I have very limited mobility. I am typing very slowly, and making a lot of mistakes. I should be wearing my brace right now, but I took time out to let you all know why the kitchen will be closed for a minimum of a week. I definitely feel the sharp pains all through my wrist and my arm if I move my hand to much. There is no way I can cook. I can barely move my hand, and holding anything is out of the question. You never know how much you use certain parts of your body until the time comes when you can’t move them. So, for all of you who live in snow country, BE CAREFUL out there. We don’t need any more casualties of snomeggedon.
I apologize for this absolutely AWFUL picture of me, but …. I will blame it on my accident. Of course, my left hand is still able to hold a glass of wine, Chardonnay, none the less, so I am still able to do the important things in life. 🙂
