My Husband's Broken Leg

Friday, August 30, 2013

My husband's leg was broken in 9 places last week in a martial arts clinic, when doing judo with a stranger and directed by a guest teacher.

2 plates. 22 screws. No weight bearing for 8 weeks. Average healing time, 16 weeks.

It's good that I'm in charge of my own time. Right now I'm doing home health care.

Upset doesn't cover it.

Spouse and daughter were into Tae Kwon Do for a few years - myself......not so much - really wasn't my cup of tea (or, more specifically, my *body's* cup of tea ;) )........those martial arts are nothing to mess around with - that's serious stuff, there!

Here's to a quick and full recovery for your hubby - and a special wish for *you* as well, for your strength and NYARAMULA said so well, caregiving is very, very challenging.......make sure you take care of *yourself* as well!

    Ouch! Wish him a quick recovery and all the best to you - being a caregiver is a very difficult job!
