After 4 hours at the hospital, 3 doctors, 2 x-rays, and 1 restless Baby Bug, the diagnosis was finally in . . . DH broke his collar bone. This is exactly what DH thought had happened but the emergency doctor we saw the night of the accident said that nothing was broken even after he took x-rays. In fact, the emergency room doctor told DH to exercise his arm 3 times a day by taking off the sling and rotating it. Today’s doctor said that DH is lucky that he didn’t do more damage to it.
The doctor restricted him from working for 6 - 8 weeks. Can anyone say, “O.M.G.”? The worst part is not that he’s the major bread winner of the family, it’s not that I’m going to have to work extra trips to try and make up for it, it’s not even the inevitable decrease in blogging I’m going to have to do. The worst part is . . . he’ll be home for 6 - 8 WEEKS! *am I shouting?*
Anyway, moving on . . .
Thank you again for a wonderful month of comments, advice, support, well wishes, & friendship. I know I’ve been slacking in the Commentor of the Month Award but I promise to make more of an effort to continue to recognize the person who has left the most comments for that month at An Island Life.
This month’s award goes to a new blogging friend - Amy @ My Life As A Trailer Park Mom. She describes herself as “a SAHM living life in a trailer park. It’s not the best life, but it’s our life, for now. One day, things will change, on God’s timing. Until then, we make the best with what we have. The kids are happy and healthy, which is what really matters, right?”
Now that’s what I call a positive attitude! I met Amy through her participation in Aloha Friday and really enjoy reading about her life as well as seeing photos of her beautiful children in her Wordless Wednesday posts. Every once in a while she’ll even share some great recipes that she’s come across. Stop by and check out her site - she’s a pretty cool blogger!
Amy will receive an item of her choice from my CafePress Store as well as a button to display on her sidebar. Thank you, Amy, for your friendship and comments!
