Believe it or Not

As I walked into my place of employment yesterday, my heel caught on something in the sidewalk and I went down SMACK on my head. It was comical in a way with blood spewing everywhere, a little Friday-the-Thirteenish for my tastes, and then all the kind people surrounding and trying to help me. I was taken to the ER nearby and got five stitches next to my eye. "Guess my modeling career is over," I said to the grouchy doc who was doing it. He said nothing...uh oh yikes. To top it off, I broke both elbows and have a wonky finger, though not broken. All of a sudden, everything I do requires strategy. I am managing, but won't be posting for a while. Stay sane, everybody. Remember--there's them and there's us.

Aw heck Becky, what did you go and do that for? I hope you are okay and not downplaying it all, cos it sounds rather dire to me.
So sorry about that happening to you.
I hope you can sue your place of employment and get lots of money - enough to retire and spend the rest of your life writing!
Yikes!!! Two broken elbows.
Sending you good wishes.
(Great profile photo btw.)

On no! Ouch!! Stitches are the pits, but on the face even worse I imagine, and yet the elbows have got to be the worst of it. Very sorry to hear -- feeling helpless about it over here.

That's it -- you definitely get Christmas off this year!

OMG b, that sounds nasty. And you still managed to keep the jokes coming while getting the stitches :-) Obviously didn't break your funny bone (sorry!). Get well soon. x

Oh Becky - that really sucks. Last summer (not the one that just passed) I did a similar thing, although I didn't fall, I twisted the daylights out of my ankle & knee - to the point I was laid up at home for 6 weeks. But broken elbows and stitches - you poor thing, I feel your pain!

Hey thanks to all of you guys. I am recovering very well and will probably be back here quite soon. I can't stand sitting around.
