This morning, as I was finishing up a bike ride before work, I skidded out as I transitioned from the pavement to the gravel driveway, and I went down hard.
These things do happen in slow motion - I think I had 100 full sentence thoughts as I was falling down. And at one point I actually thought I might pull the bike out of the slide. (so much for deluding myself to thinking I might have an ounce of humility in mt soul!)
Then, as my chin hit the ground I literally thought "Oh d---! Biking helmets don't protect the face! I'm really gonna be really pretty now."
But when I tried to get up, assessing various limbs and joints as I went, I quickly realized I had a major problem in my left shoulder.
And I realized that Andy was gone early to Helena - he would not be able to help me. I called a friend from church who lives close by, and she helped me out.
After I got it x-rayed, the Dr said its broken.
Right at the top of the head of the humerus. (this is not my x-ray, its one I downloaded from the internet.)
I'll be in sling for close to a month. With physical therapy in about two weeks. And as long as the piece stays in place, no surgery.
J is gone to camp this week, so I've got aouple days to get used to one handed/armed living before full-time mom duties kick in.
Life is nothing if not interesting.
Oh, yeah, I admit I will have to slow down when I get back on the bike.
Typing one-handed is slow, so I'm done here tonight. I hope I've given all those who need to know enough info, without boring those who don't.

J is away at camp again this week, and we really miss him. One of the things we miss is his sense of humor.
For example, on Saturday we went for a fun family day trip up the Boulder River. He took a tube to play in the river. As he was waiting for his dad to be ready to go tubing he did a little dance walk, and said he was a sumo wrestler wearing a tutu.
I guess you can see what he was talking about.
Yep, we miss his sense of humor. Can't wait for him to be back on Friday!

These two are such good friends! On hot days they share the same spot on the hardwood floors.
Being the younger of the two, Sophie is perhaps a shorter napper and very quick to think it is time to play. She's just that way. Usually, Leo doesn't mind. He just lays there and tolerates her antics.
Except when she bites his toes.
Which she almost always does! Then he gives a quick harrumph of a growl, and pulls his toes away.She gets the message and settles down for a few minutes, only to start the whole thing over again.
They are indeed good friends!
