Broke

Friday it snowed, and snowed, and then it snowed some more! The 6 or 7 inches we ended up with was amazing for middle Tennessee. Unfortunately, all the broke bones I ended up with wasn't quite so amazing!!! We got up Saturday morning, had an awesome breakfast with my brother and his wonderful family, then put on fifteen layers of clothes to go sledding. The first time I went down was a lot of fun. The second time was okay...I bailed too early. I was freezing at this point and wanted to go inside. My sister-in-law asked me to go just one more time. She wanted to video it for Facebook. (I know we're obsessed) My hubby gave me an extra hard push because he knew I would go in the house afterwards. (I don't do cold!) I was going really fast. I don't remember exactly what happened, but my left foot caught a tree and tried to knock it down! The tree was about 3 inches in diameter. Not very big but big enough to HURT!!! I immediately started screaming "call 911!" My sis in law did. The ambulance came and got me. We first went to our local hospital, but later was transferred to Vanderbilt in Nashville. I had surgery on Sunday morning. I broke both bones in my lower left leg and crushed all the bones in my ankle. I should be going home from the hospital today, but have to come back next Wednesday to see the Orthopedic doctor. He said they will schedule the 2nd surgery the following Wednesday. Needless to say, but I'm going to be out of work for a while. I'll keep you updated, but probably won't have any new crafts for a couple weeks. Thanks for all the sweet comments you left on my last post! Have a great day!!!
