My dearest husband is such a handy man around the house. He has been working for months of several remodel jobs on our home. This past Tuesday, he was working on hammering more bricks out of the existing fire place wall when he accidently removed the anchoring brick and the entire wall, about 800 pounds, came crashing to to floor. He just couldn't get his foot out of the way in time and the wall hit the foot, dislocating the ankle from the bones and shattering the tips of the bones that fit into the ankle.
Plus there are three fractures to those bones. They tried to reduce the fracture in the ER but were unable to stabilize his foot to he was sent to the Orthopedic floor.
Wednesday night they did surgery to put in screws and rods to hold the bones in place. We will be seeing a Orthopedic Trauma specialist early next week to decide on the next course of action, which will be, of course, more surgery to repair the fractures. We're looking at many months of recovery, and I'm still trying to recover from my foot surgery just a month ago. Just wanted to give you an update on my situation here at home. I probably won't be getting much crafing done in the next wee while.
