    oh I know just how you feel. I broke my wrist many years ago when the kids were little,
    I found out the meaning of frustration, 4 kids and a broken arm/wrist. I hope you fare better than I did, 20 years later they had to operate to fix the damage, mind you it now feels better than the other 1,
    look after yourself and let hubby do lots for you, don't try to do anything that will agravate it,
    will be thinking of you big hugs from me to you

    Oweeeee! What a horrible way to start a day. Your attitude is great, as the old saying goes "You don't miss the water till the well goes dry". Someday (not soon) maybe you can look back and laugh at it. Praying for a speedy recovery and no pain.

    Hope you heal fast and please do what your Dr. tells you to do or else you may make your recovery longer.

    Okay so yesterday was pitty party time. Got some paperwork done and will get more done today. So here is what happened this morning, how to take a shower? Now think about it, how do u do this and not get the cast wet, okay a clean garbage bag a rubberband and a piece of tape. Bag over the arm, then the rubber band up on the arm to keep it closed and the tape to keep the one little end from flipping around. Water is just right at this point and now to get in.
    Adjust the shower head so it doesn't spray you in the face, done and now to soap up. Hmmmmm under the arms, guess I'm not going to shave there either. Okay onto the rest of the body, got it soaped and got the legs shaved only need one hand for that!
    Oh oh, how to shampoo the hair and it is a screw top!! Okay put the bottle between the legs and get the top off, but how to pour it without a whole lot coming out??? And then the cream rinse! Ahh idea! I can see a shadow on the wall of the top of my head so pick up the bottle and pour, a little too much but it worked, oops found a bruise on the side of my head I didn't know I had. Made a mental note to go get the shampoo type with a pump!
    Okay now I'm squeeky clean and feeling human time to shut off the water and get dry. Hmmmm think about this, letting hubby sleep some more, how to get the backside dry....ahha terry robe is hanging on the door, rub the back side on that!! Next challenge, blow drying my hair. Well it got a little dry but not styled, so maybe picking up a can of hairspray to keep the unruly hair off of my face.
    Next is getting a little color on my face, didn't realise how many things I have that have screw top! And to put lotion on too! Starting to look a little more human, now to get dressed. That should be easy! Augh....the bra.....ouch that hurt, but I got it! forget about socks, and shoes sandles will work.
    Allright!! I'm ready for the day and my morning routine that takes me 30 minutes on a work day (ACK!!! Hose and skirts! I've got to go get some work slacks!) took me two hours! I'm ready to go lay down (grin) dang how many bottles do we have in this house with 'child proof tops???? Or are screwed on so dratted tight you can't get them off, no it just turns between my legs......hmmmmm, Honey!!!! Please open the coffee grinder...... :-)
    So I'm off on a new adventure!! This should be fun, I got handed some lemons, now if they will just rippen so we can have a lemon pie! Hmm how to roll out the crust...I know! A grham cracker crust that will work. More fun on the comming days with going to work on Monday. That's Monday's problem. Have fun all I'm off to put together quilt projects, dusting the furniture???? Well that can wait getting pretty good at typing with one finger, maybe I can sew very soon!!!

    See? Knew you'd be able to figure a lot of things out.

    I remember the feeling of "Ah HA!" when I mastered another thing.

    How many of us are TABs? Temporarily Able Bodied?

    I am so sorry. Bad enough to break your wrist but to do it just before the anticipated weekend of sewing and time to yourself... that's heartbreaking. Hope it heals quick and then DH finds some place to go for the weekend again! :thumbup:

    Which wrist is it? I broke my Left about ten years ago and it wasn't so bad but two years ago broke the Right and that has been a real dozzy. I learned to use a huge heavyduty bag and sealed it with painter tape because it doesn't hurt when you take it off. Also, had to buy one of those portable battery can openers as could not use any other kind for months. It has never been strong again and I just got a new one of those rotary cutters that helps. Good luck.

    Cath1776,
    I'm sorry to hear that you broke your wrist. I can relate to everything you said in your second posting. In 2007 I fell off my bike and broke my right shoulder in 2 places,
    also broke the collarbone and tore the rotator cuff.
    I needed surgery to put me back together. I couldn't cut any fabric or sew for 4 months. DH and DD to bathe me and dress me, the first 6 weeks my arm was strapped to my body except for daily(omg painful)exercises. My wonderful quilting buddies cut me about a hundred 4.5" squares so that I could sew after 4 months(no rotary cutting yet). It took me a full year to come back from this.
    I tore the left rotator cuff in 2 places last November and had to go through it all over again, it was faster healing as no bones were broken. I was outta commission for 7 months.
    hugs and wishes for a speedy recovery!
    Sharon
    P.S. I just broke my right ankle 9 weeks ago, now I can't drive! At least I can bathe myself now. :thumbup:

    Sorry about your wrist. Gosh, I'm glad you didn't say a bunch of ugly words, just those little scriggly signs! :) Lord bless you.

    Well, venting is good. You get all the baddies out and begin to accept life isn't fair, it just is. So glad you have such a great hubby to help you. He sounds like a gem. So now that you have let some steam out you will be able to concentrate on healing. Good luck.

    So sorry to hear about your bad day. I hope the pain is bearable and that you heal quickly. You have been blessed with a wonderful attitude, but none of us would blame you if you just sat yourself down and had a good cry to relieve some of your frustration. You seem to be very resourceful and I bet you're surprising yourself at how you've been able to cope and do things that seem undoable. Thank goodness for your great sense of humor. Sounds like you have yourself a fantastic husband, too.

    Take care of yourself and get well soon. Here's a hug and a prayer.
