I’d indicated last week that I expected to be out of town and possibly unable to send out a newsletter this week.
Well, I got that half right. I am at home, but as you can see (and, yes, there are indeed now metal pins screwed into some bones and sticking out the sides of my leg) I’m not quite 100% fighting fit. A combination of three surgeries since last Friday, powerful painkillers and even more powerful pain, and no easy way to write means there’ll be no newsletter this week.
What happened? I slipped while mowing the lawn last Friday morning. That was all, but sufficient to cause some ‘really unusual’ fractures in two bones and some unpleasant experiences in the days subsequently, with the certainty of many more still to come. I guess I’m living proof that most accidents happen at home, and alas, I’ve no-one to blame but myself. Just an unfortunate unexpected event.
I’m not sure what next week holds, but hopefully can offer you more than this week.
Until next week, may you not only enjoy safe travels, but safe time at home too
