A New Level of Bonding for me and Kevin

Two weeks ago, Kevin had arthroscopic hip surgery.  Recovery is 3 weeks on crutches.  I played the role of helping nurse him back to health...until 3 days ago.  While walking Annalea through the parking lot to her first ever ballet class, I stepped off the curb into a hole and lost my footing.  It was a scene!!  Poor Annalea crying, "my Mommy fell down, my Mommy fell down!!!"  A crowd formed and several people called 911.  I was rolling around on the ground in pain.  Luckily, my friend was walking in his daughter (who is Annalea's best friend) and saw me on the ground.  He helped me sit up on the ledge of my minivan while I waited for the ambulance to arrive and he walked Annalea in to her class.

A quick ride to the hospital and virtually no wait in the ER, I soon found out I had broken my fibula (ankle section) on my right foot and sprained my left ankle.  Hmmm, I thought.  Do I get to ride around in one of the chairs in the house with the cup holder?  Well, not exactly, because after splinting my left foot, I was able to put weight on it and use the crutches.

So, now we have two parents on crutches, a very helpful ten year old, and an amazing nanny who is working extra hours.  Life is actually not that bad really, other than the fact I can't go to yoga, pilates, or spinning.  Monday I will get my cast and get a better idea of what kind of recovery I can expect.  In the meantime, I will enjoy the pampering from my friends and family.
