Well, I don’t know if you read my 1/04 blog, but somewhere in there I mentioned how we all are healthy.. ?? I need ro recant that! It turns out that this morning I sent out an email that I thought was proofed … and many of you found my mistake. I’m so embarrased! But, I do have a little excuse. It turns out that this past weekend was literally spent in two different ERs in town…
It all began innocently enough on Saturday morning. I went to the office with a VERY long to do list, put on some music, and got to work. For a whole 15 minutes. And then it happened. You know those Kevlar gloves we all know are so important to wear, but how at times we just don’t want to bother? Well, this is one of those days I should have bothered! Yep, I got my finger with the rotary cutter, and off to the ER we went! (Don’t even ask how long this is taking me to type up!). Anyway, after several hours, many pain meds, and a bandage large enough to cover the state of Colorado, we finally came home. I was so aggravated because I couldn’t get anything done — forget the pain in my finger, I was just too ‘happy’ to concentrate, thanks to the Vicoden.
Well, by Sunday morning I was ready to get back to it – I figured out a way to shower and keep the hand dry, I had my new, somewhat revised to-do list, and my husband was away with the boys for the day. Imagine my surprise when I got a call from a friend assuring me that Ron was OK. HUH? Ron Who? Whah. It turns out Ron decided to try (not purposely) a Superman Move on my son’s dirt bike. Ron – 0, Bike 10. Back to a different ER to find my husband with a gash on his forehead, fractured wrist, and generally bruised from head to toe, and barely able to sit or stand. After extensive xrays, cat scans, MRIs, stitches and splints, they finally released him that evening. I got him home as best I could (remember, I’m one handed right now), settled him in, and re-wrote my to-do list. It was, afterall, a 3-day weekend, right?
No glory – Monday morning we are back to the Orthopedic Surgeon, who decides Ron needs surgery … that day.
So, Ron is now feeling great (Percoset), and my list is as long as ever. But, I type one handed, and so the occasional typo happens (I think I’ve found about 350 in this blog so far!). So, I ask that you please forgive me, and know that I’m doing the best I can – and even if it is 2:00am when I get to a Newsletter, I will try and do a better job proofing!
I have pictures of my hand and Ron, but they are kind of gross, so I think I’ll pass … 🙂
Have a great Wednesday, and stand by for some great news this weekend!
A very Red Teresa 🙂
