Last week was winter break here in the state of Massachusetts. We all went to Sunday River, ME to snowboard and on the second day of snowboarding I fell pretty hard. I knew it was not a regular fall but I just decided to stop snowboarding and give it a few days for my body to feel better...besides, I was talking and walking and through my pain I could still do the things I always did (just a lot slower; and I do have pretty high tolerance for pain). On Monday, once I got in the car for my car pool duty, I realized I could not drive without excruciating pain so I decided to get help from friends. I am very blessed that I live around people who are not only friends but that are also family who help me out when I am in need. Finally got to the hospital and it was confirmed: fractured right rib, inflamed tissue, liquid in right lung and possible rotator cuff tear. Well, so much for a dumb fall...injuries are so different when you are older and I am just about annoyed that I can't do much.
Here's us before going down the mountain one last time right before the last fall:
I sure do need prayers...I hope I heal enough by the end of this week so I don't have to go to an orthopedic..I'm really hoping not to have a rotator cuff tear.
Before we headed out, I was in charge of a going away gift for one of the girls that was leaving our church to go with her family to another state. A little wall hanging with all the other girls in the church signing the back of it. Here's the front of the wall hanging:
