EC, and MLE, condolences here as well.

I'm a couple of days behind here. Went shopping on Saturday, brought the groceries in, put them down in the entryway and as per usual reached the left foot back to shut the door and had something wet either under or on the bottom right shoe and the foot went flying. Serious knee damage (no surgery thank God), two nights in the hospital with lots of good drugs (not worth it though.....) and I'm quite housebound for the forseeable future. It was quite a challenge getting me up the stairs without putting any pressure on the right foot let me tell you.

Sorry about the knee, Misfit! Can you get someone to pile a chairside table with books for you?

Thanks everyone for the kind words, but it's Misfit the kittycat and myself fending on our own unless I 1) go to my brothers house or 2) move in with my elderly neighbor. Both choices I'd prefer to avoid, especially imposing on an 80 something year old lady. My brother's house, well I'd get mothered to death.

I guess I'm grateful they decided the break would heal on it's own without surgery, but I've got a lovely bulky splint on my leg, can't put any weight on it and since I was hopeless as crutches we've had to go for the old lady walker. I've already figured out why they have baskets on the better models :o :p , let alone that I'm going to have to get some work out type gloves to protect my hands, the rubber handle is killing my palms.

Pray for me :) :p :confused: :o

ROFL, my sister-in-law thinks this is the most creative excuse I've come up yet to avoid the Christmas dinner family function :D

Lots of books to read though, no problems there.
