- Thank you to everyone who played along in our first Where Do You Live Weekend carnival. We visited Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Idaho, Virginia, Illinois, Georgia, Indiana, and Northern Ireland! I hope many more will join us next month. The carnival will be on the weekend of June 6-8
- In a clumsy moment last night, in the dark while heading out to the beach to see how our boys were doing at crabbing, I missed the last stairstep of the beach house our Indiana friends are renting. I heard my ankle pop (crack?) and had quite a rough night of it. This morning, I finally decided to give into seeing a doctor (grumble.mumble.) Our kids are still enjoying the beach, but my lucky man gets to be my chauffeur as I go to get my ankle checked out this afternoon.
Oh, in case you wanted to, don’t get hurt at the beach, because the nearest hospital is 40 minutes away and the closest Urgent Care center closed its doors for the week for a charity event. The next town’s Urgent Care center said, “Yes, we could see you, but I need to warn you that it might be quite a while as we’re hosting a Weight Loss Seminar today.” Hmm, possible broken ankle, weight loss, broken ankle, weight loss — yeah, I can totally see how weight loss might win over. Next town: no ugent care center. Next town: “Opening in Fall of 2008!”
So I finally called the orthopedic surgeon who worked on our daughter’s broken elbow two years ago and begged in without a referral. The downside: a three-hour wait until the appointment. But an ER would be that long anyway, right? And this way I get to see the expert himself without the referring middle
I’ll be back with an update!
