Another Grey Hair!

I would like to Thank you for all the kind comments and concern during my Dear Hubby's ladder accident and broken leg.  You'll never know how much it has meant to me & kept me positive.

Dear Hubby is still unable to put any weight onto his foot/ankle that has the broken fibula.  He goes back to the Orthopedic Doctor on November 1st to look at his foot/ankle again.  He does have a grade 2 possible grade 3 sprain.  Even though it's been since the 6th of October, he is unable to put any weight onto that foot.

We are hoping for the best but.......he gave me another grey hair last week.  After getting him dressed and sitting him in his wheelchair in the kitchen so that I could put a dress on real quick he thought he could get himself a q-tip out of a cabinet in the kitchen.  He fell, hitting his eye on the kitchen counter & slicing his forearm.  Unfortunately the q-tip won!

This is what happens when you don't listen to your wife when she says "STAY SEATED!".

We didn't make it to Church, or out in public for a few days.  He cut his arm pretty bad but it could have been worse.  I'm glad he didn't hit on the cheek bone or the brow, we would have been getting stitches then.

It's a slow progress in recovery and my sewing is very sporadic to say the least.  I did get a little job of hemming 10 pair of pants for the Sheriff's Office, hopefully it will turn into something ongoing.

Until next time.........................

Missing all my sewing friends



  1. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven... May this season grace you with patience, peace, and renewed purpose.

  2. Yikes! Tell him to listen to you! Sending healing thoughts your way.

  3. It is so difficult to keep a hard working man from doing too much! You have your hands full with him. It was a month for me before I could put weight on my leg, but that was a break. Could he use a knee scooter and feel like he could get around more? I really liked using one. So hard to be patient when you are used to being busy! We have missed you too Bonnie,and I am glad you are getting a little sewing in even if it is hemming pants. I am glad you checked in, I was wondering how you were doing!

    1. Dear Hubby is just now able to put a little weight onto his foot/ankle. It's only been three weeks though....Everyday is a little bit better but it's so slow. Thank you for your kind comments and your encouragements. It's truly appreciated!
