Yesterday it was all lemon butter and Anzac biscuits.

Which I blogged about but didn’t actually post.

This morning on his way to work Mr Ric Rac fell over. Just one of those stumbles that happen. Five hours later the very nice doctor at casualty confirmed that he had broken his elbow.

That sucks right?

My real life friends have all just gasped…..

About thirty odd years ago Mr Ric Rac had a motorcycle accident that left his left arm completely paralysed….

So now he has a completely paralysed left arm and a completely immobilised broken right arm.

A  double slung Tutankhamen kind of look

 

Feeding, dressing, you get the drill folks.

So, it’ll be a weirder than normal around here for a bit.

(I’m pretty sure you didn’t want a photo)

  7. Oh no for him and you. My brother did the exact me thing to his elbow years ago, mind you he was drunk and running in the rain at the time, Dr at country hospital said not broken so he had it in a sling for 2 weeks while he played tennis etc, got home dr confirmed it was broken and he had to have a pin put in it.

  13. Oh noes!!!! I'm sorry to hear about Mr. Ric Rac's injury and hope that he'll have a speedy recovery and not too much discomfort and pain in the interim.

    As for you, young lady - I hope you'll remember to take some time to rest in between your step and fetch it routine - and when you get tired of it - remember you love him and don't try to kill him. lol

    (I'm only projecting because two years ago BSP had a double knee replacement surgery and I had to step and fetch [with bed pan duty!] *shudder* - although I 'spose you'll have some similiar tasks!)

    Good luck to you both!

  16. Goodness, you're literally going to have your hands full. Dear Friend's 40 year old son, having a weekend with the boys, decided to have a relay race in the parking lot while waiting for their pizza. Friend's son won but did he really? As he crossed the finish line he fell...shattered his elbow and broke a bone in 2 places. Surgery, cast from shoulder to finger tips. Does this make you feel better or worse? :o)

  22. Oh poor Mr Ric Rac! That sounds just as painful as it is no doubt inconvenient.
    Best wishes to you both!


    Oh, and I'd actually be fine with seeing photos, but I am an OR nurse's daughter, so this sort of stuff holds no horror for me.

  23. O dear. What a waste of sewing time. And it would happen in the holidays too. Hoping he is not in too much pain or was that too much of a pain. Lots of swimming or even time at the pool helped my youngest get full mobility back when she broke her elbow. Cherrie

  25. Oh, no! How long does a broken elbow take to heal? Do you need to stay home from work? All the very best!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sending lots of sympathy your way :-(
    Hope it heals really quickly!

  27. Ugh! Can we go back to the anzac bikkies and lemon butter and pretend this never happened? Poor Mr & Mrs Ric-Rac. I'm guessing this means time off work as well? Not good :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Being a nurse to one's husband really takes some teeth gritting and vowel remembering. As in wedding vowels, not a,e,i,o,u.
    I like to grate lemon rind in my anzacs and drizzle a simple lemon icing on top.
