I won't be posting any of my quilting progress for a while.
On Tuesday July 27th I fell inside of my apt and I broke my right leg in 5 places. I had to be transferred from a good size hospital to a bigger hospital in the big city so they could do surgery on my leg. On Wed the 28th I went in for surgery and they put in a real long wide plate and 20 screws in my leg.
I was in a cast for a while with ace bandages covering the whole thing - the cast only went up just above my ankles and that was about it. About three weeks ago I went to see my bone specialist and he is really good and I just love him to death.
His Assistant took my cast off, took off the ace bandages, and now I'm wearing a boot I still can't put no weight on my leg yet for another 3 weeks. I go back to my bone specialist on Sept 9th and then he will tell me if I can start putting weight on my leg or not. Everything looks good on the x-rays.
I am staying at some dear close friends of mine until I am able to get up and walk period. I have my cat wih me too and he is so happy to be with me at my friend's house.
I sit in my wheel chair most of the time and I use my walker to go to the restroom and to get in and out of the car with. I only use my walker when I need to.
I had 30 staples in my leg where he cut me open up on my leg and they took those out too.
I am hoping and praying that I can start walking on my leg when I go see my bone specialist on Sept 9th.
On that Tuesday that it happened they had to re-set my leg without putting me out and boy did that hurt. I was in so much pain. My friend Marilyn was with me.
I trip over my lamp cord that was plugged into my power strip and that is how I fell. I had my cell phone laying on my table that was beside my chair and the way I fell I had to scoot to get to my table which wasn't that far with my foot dangling in mid air so I could get to my cell phone. I called 911 and the Firemen came, the paramedics came, they took out my living room window screen to get in to my apt. Than I called my friend Marilyn up and than we went from there.
I am just now gettng the movement back in my foot/ankle. I have to keep my boot on when I am not exercising my leg/ankle/foot. My leg is still not healed up yet. The pain has subsided pretty much now and my skin has loosen up quite a bit on my leg too. I only take one pain pill at night and that is it.
I have a real good close friend that died on Wednesday from Cancer and she was 52 years old. Her name is Debra. I am going to her Memorial Service on the 28th of this month.
My Quilting Group is going to help me finish my two quilts up and than I can hand quilt it than after they get it put together for me.
As soon as I am able to take pictures and upload them on my computer at my apt I will take pictures of my two quilts.
