out of commission

well hello there!!!! i'm sorry that it's been so long since i have posted a blogpost. life sometimes can sure throw us an unexpected curve at times, and this is one of those times for me.

two weeks ago today i took a fall while helping my father from taking a fall. he did not fall thank God.

but i did.

i have a very large fracture running down almost the whole length of my humerus......which is the upper arm bone. most people can fall, break their arm, be put in a cast, and go on with life.

not me.......

my arm is in a splint in a sling, and i have to keep it still. if it moves there is a risk of the fracture shifting and that would be soooooo not good. i sleep in an upright position in the living room and have to be very careful with every move i make. the good news is the severe pain has subsided.

the other good news is that i have watched every single episode of every single program on HGTV.

the other good news is that i don't have to cook dinner anymore. i also don't have to clean the house.

i am such a lucky girl!!!!!!!

but seriously i really do count my blessings and know that things could be so much worse.

this too shall pass.

not quickly but it shall pass. doctor told me yesterday we are looking at probably two more months before i can probably go back to work.

i'm thinking that also means two more months of no photography........

i will miss blogging so i'm planning on occasionally popping on to say hi to you and will give you updates and perhaps share some of my older works that have never been put up on the blog

like this.........i will title this one.........OH DEER!!!!!! which is about how i feel right now!

stay tuned......i will be pulling more stuff out of the archives!
