Eight To Ten Weeks...

Hi Everyone...
Wow! The summer is going fast...we are having nice warm days after a pretty cool July. We were planning a little holiday in a couple of weeks...but that isn't going to happen now. Instead I am hobbling around from room to room on crutches! I slipped down a couple of stairs, my leg went straight out and then I bent it back....I could feel the heat and hear the "crunch". I knew it wasn't good. Fortunately, my hubby was just leaving for work and so off to the hospital we went...I didn't break any bones, but after an ultra sound, it was clear that I had torn my quad tendon that attaches to the knee cap! Oh Blah!!! It is a partial tear, but bad enough that if I flex the knee it could snap...so I am in a knee splint for 6 weeks...and then another 2-4 weeks working on flexing. Not sure if I will need surgery yet..going back next week for another look. I will have an MRI in a month or so to see how things are progressing...sooner if necessary.
So, no holiday for now...but I should be able to get some artwork done...I can't drive, so I am here...creating.


















The Splint...























The Splint with Crutches...Blah!!

I will be updating the shoppe at the beginning of the week...
Have a wonderful day!
Nancy

Oh my that sounded so painful. I hope you've got some good meds. At least you are forced to create now... Too bad about the holiday but perhaps later when you are back to normal

Thank-you so very much for your well wishes. So glad to have such wonderful blogging friends!
I am really not very happy about it...but what can you do. I am getting around the house...can't drive for awhile yet, but that is okay. I am going back to the hospital tomorrow to see how things are...and we go from there.
I'll keep everyone posted on the progress.

Have a great week!
Hugs, Nancy

Oh dear Nancy ~ :(
So sorry to hear that you have been in the wars, that is so sad for you.
Hoping that you heal quickly and that you will not need surgery.
Such a pity that you have had to put the holiday on hold, and hope that you will be able to go away soon.
Take care and I look forward to seeing your lovely creations.

Sending hugs
Carolyn

Nancy, that is absolutely awful! Man, I tell you, those accidents just creep up on us. I hope you have plenty of vodka on hand. Just a shot into a glass of pink, lemonade Crystal Light and you can let your worries dissipate. Works for me!
