bummer at Griff's house

Wednesday night my wife took the step from our greenhouse to the lawn and broke her ankle. This is a single step we have both taken a million times. It was before any adult beverages were consumed. She speculates it would not have happened had she been "relaxed." She broke her distal fibula (the smaller of the two bones in the lower leg) into four pieces about an inch above her ankle. She has been stuck in bed except for short trips to the bathroom since and has surgery scheduled for Monday morning. They will insert a plate and put her bone back together with small screws. And then eight weeks of no weight bearing. Consequently, I've been a really busy guy fetching this and that for her as well as tackling all the domestic chores.

The good news is she has something that will heal and others are not so fortunate. Helping her for a few months is a small price for all she has done for me over the last 37 years. But it is really cutting done on my Q time.

Griff

Sorry to hear about Mrs. Griff. Hope she does well in surgery and recovers soon.

My dad did the same thing a few years ago and the surgery went well with theropy.

Friends

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. I took the laptop up to the bedroom and she read your posts. They definately raised her spirits. She also indicated she is willing to try the Wolfe rub and foil. That made her laugh out loud. Thanks again.

Griff
