Well, that was a big 'opps'...










It was SUCH a pretty SUNNY day here!
I woke up on time and was able to go to the light rail to
go to church this morning...
when I got off the train and was going towards church,
I failed to see the change in sidewalk height and fell,
with my right leg somehow falling badly and first,
I think with me under it somehow and well...
I now have a fractured filbula ankle bone!
Mr Husband picked me up,
he was working at home thankfully, and we went to urgent care
and immediately to an X-Ray and the rest is history.
I need to see an orthopedic doctor and hope to find one tomorrow
for next week, as I was told that next week is fine
as long as I don't agitate the bone and keep it elevated!
So, asking your prayers.
I hope to go to a dear friend's wedding on Sunday...I already 
am coming up with strategies for this!
But I am afraid that other plans will be displaced for a while,
as I will need time to heal... 
Pray for me!
And if you want, let me know if I can say a prayer for you...

So many times I've almost done this - it's so easy to not pay attention to what we're doing!
Thank God for everything, Elizabeth, no matter what. I hope the time goes by quickly. Cleo will keep you company. :)

Sending you prayers and hugs for a fast recovery. I'm so sorry that this happened to you. Hopefully, you can attend the wedding you were so looking forward to. Pat xx

Dear friend, what an unfortunate accident! I am glad you are not in pain and that you are safely home. Prayers for a quick recovery, and that you will be able to attend the wedding xxx

Oh, Elizabeth! So very soory about what happened, and what discomfort you are experiencing now! Many prayers for healing, patience (you'll need it ;), and comfort coming your way!! Very much hoping your recovery and healing time won't be too, too long. (In a car accident, I broke my arm, and it was awful... 8 weeks in a cast. So I can very much empathize with you!) Hope so much you'll be able to attend that wedding at the weekend! In the meantime, enjoy chocolate, tea, cuddles with Cleo, reading, yarn-y projects... ((BIG HUGS))
