My Right Hand Man...

I sent my dh off to work this morning
but not before I
helped him into his contraption...a cupless bra would be the best way to describe it.
Put his shirt on him
Helped him with his pants & belt.
Put his socks on him.
Put his shoes on him.
My right hand man
is a one handed man
for at least 4 - 6 weeks.
Did I mention he's a tad bit grumpy, too?
As I was putting his shoes on him, I mentioned that perhaps he was to the age where velcro shoes would be appropriate. He didn't seem to see the same humor in that comment as I did....
See those bright red & shiny roller blades? These are used for one of my dh various forms of exercise. A roller blade ride for the dh isn't just a little spin around the block or up and down main street. It's a 10 mile work out around the lake.
It was in those bright red & shiny roller blades he came upon a stick on the bike path cruising along at about 8 - 10 mph. Not a good combination.
End result,
broken collar bone in 2 locations.
We are hoping things heal with the figure 8 brace in 4 - 6 weeks and no surgery is required.
Hmmm....looks like just me, myself and I gets to do the raking this fall
&
praying for no snow for the next 2 months....
Have a good day,
Brenda

My husband broke his collarbone when he was a teenager and he says it was no fun. Sounds like you are taking good care of him, though. Hope he heals quickly.

Oh dear Brenda!!

I am sorry to hear about Hubby's accident, and feel even more sorry to for you! My Hubby does not make a good patient at all!

Have I told you lately how much I adore your posts and pictures that you post. I am in awe of all the you create, I truly am.

Wooly hugs,
