My last post was on January 1st wishing everyone a Happy New Year. Right after that post I drove to OSH to buy a trailer ball hitch for my cuff class. Came home, set my purse and bag down, opened the gate for the dogs to come out ... and immediately tripped over Charlie and fell onto the driveway. Luckily I was able to scoot over to my purse and call my neighbor. I had fallen on my right side and my right arm was useless. Her friend helped me up, got me into the car and off we went to the ER. Fortunately I remembered my kiln was on with those broken bottle plates, so my neighbor was able to turn it off.

What a start to the new year! I had fractured my pelvis in a couple places, so it took almost three weeks before I could walk without pain. After staying in the hospital for a few days, I was transferred to a rehab facility where I had the best care and physical therapy. And finally got home on January 24th!

Yesterday I got those two plates from New Year's Day fired in their slump molds ... they are gorgeous!

Unfortunately I had an MRI last week on my right shoulder and the results were really bad ... so I am waiting for the doctor's office to call with a surgery date. In the meantime I have done everything I can think of to make my life after surgery easier. I'll have to wear a sling for six weeks, then start physical therapy.

I don't know about typing and using the mouse with my left hand .... so it may be a while before my next post!!
