broken arm!

i fell down on the sidewalk yesterday and broke my arm! it's a very small, insignificant fracture, but very painful because i also twisted my arm when i fell, so i have a cast from shoulder to elbow! i only have to keep the cast for 8 days ( i told you it was a tiny fracture) and i can't wait to get it off. i never had a cast on, and when the doctor finished i told him my arm was claustraphobic and to please take it off.
i think the painkillers had kicked in then. but the cast took the pain away, so today i feel rather silly with it on. Not to mention clumsy. (my son pointed that out.)

the puppy is being a perfect angel. he looks so mischievous, but he doesn't do any of the silly puppy things most puppies do - he only chews his toys and bed, and he's nearly completely housetrained. he and rusty are almost best of friends - and i'm watching the complete series of LOST - which is keeping me glued to the TV and away from the computer!!
here is the new cover -

Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear about your arm, Sam! I broke my wrist and then my ankle awhile ago (no breaks when I was a kid--only now that I’m a klutzy adult! LOL) and I know it’s no picnic to be in a cast. The best part was the zippy happy feelings I got from the painkillers. :-0

The new cover is gorgeous! The artist did a beautiful job.

Take care, kiddo!

Aww, poor Sam! ((((HUGS)))) I hope you feel better very, very soon and the cast comes off when expected.

Take care of yourself!

Impressive book cover!
And I hope you get mended soon. A couple of years ago I slipped on a grape while doing cleanups at a daycare I was working at. Put my arm out to stop the fall and twisted it from the elbow. Thought it was sprained but it was a tiny fracture. I didn't have a cast on though and it mended quite quickly but I did go to physio to help out later.

Back in 8th grade, I broke my wrist and the doctor gave me some hardcore pain killers. My mom gave me Tylenol and kept the good stuff for herself. To this day she remains unrepentant, saying, "Hey, kid, you had a broken wrist; I had two teenage boys living under my roof. I needed them more than you."

I love my mom. Hope you get to feeling better, Sam.

"suck it up" and all that, lol

Heal quick, hopefully the pain will go away even faster.

Don't you love LOST? I started watching it this year and need to see the entire first series, though KristieJ emailed me a great synopsis of the first season, so I feel like I know what is going on.

Wow, only 8 days for the cast? I'm so glad to hear that. Although, as I've said before, bummer on the broken arm!

Love the cover!
