My rotten Sunday - 18 November 2012

The day started out bad for me, and got worse...

*  I was awakened from a sound sleep at 5:40 a.m. by Linda calling for me.  She had dropped the frozen turkey in the freezer on her right foot, and was bleeding.  I tried to clean it up, but it kept bleeding and we decided to go to the ER.  Got her there by 6:40 a.m. and they took her in immediately for x-rays.  I sat in the lobby, using the iPhone to read email, blogs and add Ancestry Hints, until 9:15 when I went in to be with her.  They had finally gotten the x-rays that showed her middle toe on her right foot was fractured - shattered the tip of that toe.  The doc came in and put in 8 stitches to close the bleeding wounds, and gave us a prescription, a walking shoe, and directions for treatment.  I posted pictures of the toes on Facebook... and both girls called to check up on her.

*  She was released at 10:45 a.m. and we were home by 11 a.m.  I went to Ralphs to get the prescription and some food items.  I changed the dressing, got the pills down her, and we ate lunch.  She can walk on it.  She called Tami and begged off having the girls for the week here.

*  We watched the Chargers game - worst effort of the year in the first half.  They lost to Denver 30-23 but it wasn't that close.  now 4-6.  A terrible day so far.

*  Managed to tweet about Best of the Genea-Blogs - 11 to 17 November 2012 posting, and read email and blogs.

*  Went in to help with dinner and we ate watching the news and then football.  I did the dishes, and gave her pills and changed the dressing.  It's still oozing blood on the right side of the toe - looks like the stitches didn't close the wound completely.

*  Online at 7:30 p.m. to read, write a post for Monday which went up by mistake, and worked in the database adding sources and content (mainly the Buck data from Connecticut towns).

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 3.0 hours.

Toe fracture are very painful. Unless you sit on you rear for 6 to 8 weeks every step will hurt. I feel her pain.

My toe hurt for about 8 weeks and every shoe I tried to wear hurt it even more.

I had to work so I purchased Birkenstocks, I admit they were ugly, but my foot felt fine.
