Don't know if I posted that I sprained my R ankle days after arriving, but that was not the coup de grâce.
I was walking on a gravel path in the botanical gardens. Fell and broke 2 bones in my ankle. Foot was dangling and backwards!! I have been in hospital since 1/25. Spent my birthday in hospital.
Surgery 1/28. Screws and a plate.grâce.Confined to bed. Can't do ANYTHING without assistance - even go to the bathroom! Was transferred to rehab hospital today. Was supposed to fly home 2/1. NOT HAPPENING! Thank goodness I took out flight insurance!! And God Bless New Zealand health care for caring for me and doing all this cost free!!!
I am now HOBLING on something called a frame that it higher & more sturdy than a walker. It has armrests that accommodate the full upper arm. But I have to HOP on my right foot while holding my left, casted leg in the air!!
My cat who was being cared for for 3 weeks now needs 6 weeks - bills need to be paid - all kinds of things I need to figure out from my hospital bed halfway around the world!! My daughter was able to cancel to Dr appts I had - one for basal cell surgery!
NO FUN to be bedridden for this long!!!
I'm here again, after an absence and looking forward to worshipping with you ladies!
