No Alcohol was Involved


i broke my ankle on New Years Eve,
on a simple attempt to cross the street.
my feet moved off before my head,
and so i tripped right off the edge.

I broke both bones in my left leg,
“we’ll call an ambulance” they said,
but 2 hours later I still waited
getting more agitated.

so in the end to my car i hopped,
and my kidlet drove to the hospital and stopped.
they told me I would have to stay,
for an operation the next day.

I’ve had to have a plate put in,
securely fixed with 7 pins,
and part of a bone they couldn’t fix,
has now been given the surgeons flick.

so now I hop, and scoot round in my chair,
6 whole weeks no weight to bear,
and i think each time i see my foot,
before i moved I should have looked!

      I came home the day after the op – so yes, my kidlet provides great help 🙂

    A bit of the old snap, crackle and pop, eh? It becomes the soundtrack at this time in our lives… 😉

      Yes, very distressing there wasn’t anything slightly naughty going on to make it happen.

        Sometimes it rains on the just and the unjust at the same time – even though it shouldn’t.

    Oh no! My hope was you’d be doing much more pleasant things in your absence. Hope you have a speedy and complete recovery.
    On a side note, had alcohol been involved, it probably would have hurt less. 😉

    Well that’s a completely pants way to see in the New Year 😦 I can’t hit the like button for this. My belated comment must be seeing you at about the halfway mark of your (off your feet) recovery, so I hope you can see the light at the end of the tunnel and that you’re being well looked after.
