Big Men Fall Hard

How's that for a catchy title?

We arrived home from our whirlwind trip to Florida just as a snowstorm was pounding on our county. We safely made it home, broke through a huge drift in the driveway, and parked the car.

As we were all heading to the house, eager to get out of the weather, Steve fell on the patio. Apparently there was a couple inches of ice under that 10 inches of snow.

Right down he went, trying to catch himself he heard his elbow go POP! I was sure he broke it.

So off we went to the ER 15 miles away, in a driving snowstorm, with no sleep for 29 hours. We were both a little out of it at the hospital, but once they were done with x-rays, slings, and meds they sent us home, and again we made it safely.

Thankfully, Steve's arm doesn't appear to be broken. They may do an MIR in a week to see if he's torn any ligaments, which could mean surgery.

This is where you come in. Please, please, please pray that there is no need for surgery, and that Steve will heal quickly. Thankfully he's in very little pain, but I suspect he's going a little stir crazy. It's his right arm, and he's right-handed. That means no work for over a week.

We are both very concerned that this could negatively impact the Colorado job. I can't even think about that right now. ugh.

He just needs rest for healing. Pray that he will rest, heal, and not go nuts in the meantime.

Or drive me nuts.

Yeah, pray for me too : )
