I am sure you wonder what I mean by this post’s title. I’ll start off by saying – No, I don’t have a hurt leg.
And then I’ll continue by saying – But…
On Christmas morning my husband fell down the stairs and severely injured his left leg – a complete tear of the quadriceps tendon. He also had a sprained right ankle.
So, we went to the emergency room and learned that the ankle will heal in a couple of weeks. The left leg, though, is in bad shape and will need surgery (scheduled for January 6). After that, there is a recovery and rehabilitation time of about 4-6 months to walking again – then more months of bringing the leg back to normal strength and agility. Really, it will be next Christmas before things are fully healed.
So, I will be busy managing the situation here for some time. My husband will need assistance with most of the things of everyday life for the next few months.
I wanted to take the time to mention this little speedbump in the road of life – I usually work so that I have posts set up in advance, and I feel sure I’ll be able to keep on participating here in our blog world. I may not be able to get back to you right away on comments, though, but please keep in touch, as I will eventually do so. I also plan to try to stay up with your blogs – being part of this community has become a big part of my life and I depend on my participation in it.
It looks like 2017 is not going to go the way I thought it would, right off the bat! But I am grateful for good medical care and my husband’s determined attitude, as well as my family and friends’ support. Thanks to them, and to all of you, for traveling the road of my creative endeavors with me.
