I'm Still Here

So sorry, no card today.  Hubby was in the hospital Monday night, Tuesday and was released Wednesday night, so I've been in my other mode of playing nurse for him again.  He fell while trimming tree limbs and was hurt, but not bad.  A few cracked ribs, a few broken and a few fractures on his spine.  He has no recall of falling and when I found him he had dragged himself to a chair outside and very dazed and confused.  After much nagging, I finally got him to agree to go to the emergency room.  Had a really good scare while there, his blood pressure dropped to 70/50 but the angels (his nurses) got him in good shape again.  But since the the hospital close to our house does not handle trauma cases any more, they had to transfer him, by ambulance, to another hospital.  He is getting back to normal and realizes just how fortunate he is that he didn't get hurt worse!  Anyone want to buy a used ladder?!  Are other angels (his friends from work) are coming Monday to haul off the limbs for us.  We are so very thankful that while hurt, in 6-8 weeks he should be back to his old self once again.

I hope to be able to have some things to share with you next week and I hope you all have a great, safe week-end too!

Mary

Mary, I am so sorry to hear about your husband's accident. This is why I will not allow my hubby (or myself) to get up on ladders anymore. If it's too high...it doesn't get done. Prayers being sent for his speedy recovery... Hugs!
