Weekending--- the one with the broken collarbone

The before-- 
all dressed out for a night out at a gala...

Amazing treats and eats....

And then.... I snagged my heel on the side of a wooden ramp,fell  and smashed my shoulder against a post.  Man, the pain was intense and something felt very weird on my right shoulder. Not fun, friends, not fun!

And the after....
In a handmade sling, with some ice and meds in the middle of the night. The pain was awful when I moved my arm any which way.

My friend Luisa came to watch the girls on Saturday morning while D and I headed to the ER to get it checked out. While lots thought it was an AC separation, it turned out to be fractured-- a 'nice' clean bone break in my right clavicle with very limited use of my right arm.... 6 weeks recovery, fracture clinic visits and lots of physio.... the biggest thing is no driving for a while-- which is huge for my life as my kids' chauffeur these days!

The venue sent me some flowers.

My brother and his wife also came to help us this weekend so very much. They BBQ'd and the kids went in the pool....


SO this is me for the next little while....it could totally be worse!  My in-laws (praise the Lord) are coming to help us for a bit with the driving and cooking. Lots of physio and lots of rest for this arm so that the bone hopefully fuses. And lots of beachy hair as let's face it-- a blow-out needs two hands and arms :-)

( so does changing... and flossing!)

Good thing I have these!
