WIP Wednesday – Ouch.

I’ve been a bit derailed this week due to a broken arm. Not mine, but rather my son’s, who broke it playing baseball Saturday afternoon.ย  Admittedly, if you ask him how he broke it, he’s been experimenting with some creative writing and you might get an answer that involves a charging rhino and falling off the crapper.

He got the cast put on yesterday (hot pink! his choice!), and we got some non-vodka flavored lollipops to help with the resetting pain. Side note: I was more in need of the vodka than he was, as he is way tougher than me and opted to forgo the novocaine shot when the doctor needed to reset the bone a bit. We both excel at needle avoidance.

(photo taken before bone re-setting, but we both looked like this with some extra green color right afterwards, too)

I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things sew-ing wise, but have a couple other things happening this week (FRIDAY! STAY TUNED FOR ANNOUNCEMENT ON FRIDAY!) that might keep me from the machine for another couples days.

  1. I don’t know how I managed to have 3 kids and no broken bones. They are all grown now with their own children Lets see how that goes. Anyway, I hope he heals soon and you survive. You could quilt him a neat cast cover when he is tired of the pink ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  2. So sorry! Hope he heals fast. Such a pain to be one hand down. I broke my left wrist on June 20, so can certainly empathize. Since I am considerably wiser (read as older), I sure hope he does not have the post healing swelling and extreme stiffness of my fingers that I continue to experience. ROM issues too.
