On a 'Break'.....Literally!


Two days ago we arrived in Seattle for our visit with the kids and grandkids. Yesterday morning i slipped in my fuzzy socks and landed on my wrist.  It's broken pretty badly and I'll have to have out patient surgery this coming Thursday to get one of the bones in the proper place.

I'm typing this with one hand. :)   I'm afraid it may be awhile before i can type again.  Just wanted you to know where I was.  When the pain subsides  I'll try to update you.  I'll be in a cast for six weeks.

Sadly, i had to cancel my trip to Maria's in Vancouver. We're so disappointed.

The bright side is that I'm still getting to cuddle with the grandkids and visit our kids.

The pain is pretty severe and the medicine makes me groggy...but hopefully things will get better quickly.
 Be assured that I'm resting in the Lord's peace.  Somehow this will all work out for the best.

Hubby drove us to his childhood home in Issaquah and to Snoqualmie falls. Inspite of the pain, I couldn 't help but be awestruck by it's majestic beauty.  Thought you would enjoy seeing it.

Have a lovely week. I'll catch up with you as soon as I'm able.

Happy Homemaking!

Oh, Donna. You poor thing. I am so so sorry about your wrist; and I'm so sorry you won't be able to visit with Maria. I know how much you were looking forward to that. I'm so glad you at least still get to visit with your family. Tim's hometown is just breathtaking. I will be keeping you in my prayers for a fast and speedy recovery.

So sorry this happened Donna! I pray for a speedy recovery for you. I didn't know your husband is from Issaquah! I grew up in Granite Falls and every summer I would travel by Snoqualmie Falls with my best friend to North Bend where her Dad logged. Small world!

Sounds like you were just meant to relax and be loved and loved on. :)Someone knew it would take pain meds to slow you down and get you to just soak up every little hug, kiss and cuddle.

Hope you are feeling much better soon and that the break heals quickly!

Guess this means you'll have time to relax a bit and let others take care of you.
