Default ruff sunday after the meet

I would just like to start this out saying great job Patrick on the meet, and it was so nice to see everyone of my friends from the pcs family. You guys are all great. Also wanted to say I was sad that I did not get a chance to say good buy to a lot of you before I left. I went home after the light show to get the cars back, so I would not have to do that on sunday,"really good thing I did that" And thank Kim McDonald for helping me do that. When I got back a lot of you guys were back to your room.

Well on sunday morning I slept in till 8:00 and then jumped out of bed to head down stairs to take a shower and get ready to have some breakfast with some of the people and spend the day at the masterpiece with others.

That is when my weekend all went bad. As I was going down the stairs my two moose of dogs, my Rottweiler brothers ran down besides me all happy I was up. Well they made my feet slip down about 4-5 steps on the edge. I tried to grab the landing, and realized that was not going to go so well.

I fell back, know it was not going to be good I tucked my head towards my chest so I would not hit my head that hard. Well I actually bounced 3ish times down the steps till I finally ended up on the first floor landing. Then insult to injury, my dogs thought it was play time and was jumping on me and giving me kisses at that time.

Kathy got them off of me and out side right away. I layed there for a bit started to get light headed, and really hurting. I started see if I could move my limbs my feet and legs moved good, my left arm yes, my right arm not so much. once I could finally get my self up with help. I realized I need to get checked out. But did not need a ambulance ride, put on some shorts. And went into the walk in clinic.

well after some x-rays we found out that I broke my Scapula, and two ribs. My arm is in a sling. I really cant move it much. And have a appointment to see the orthopedic dr tomorrow. So we will see how that all goes, really feels like I tore something in the shoulder.

So that is how my weekend ended, now im off of work the really hard way till I can get some more movement. Im right handed and that it the one that took the pounding.

I just wanted to give everyone the update, and say it was great to see you all, and I so greatfull it was not worse or happened in the beginning of the week.

With all your energy, it is going to be so hard for you to sit still until you heal. Hope you have a speedy recovery and we are all happy that it did not happen at the beginning of the week. Take care.

OUCH. Sorry to hear that! As bad as it sounds it could have been much worse, stairs are a dangerous thing we all take for granted. Its amazing how fast things in life can change.
Take it easy for a while and let it heal right!

Default Rough Sunday

Rocky, all I can say is, been there, done that and now I am more careful. I have logged three life time major falls so far. One just last year. Countless times going down basement stairs and not ducking low enough. Getting mad and kicking an object with steel toe boots....ouch it hurts! But you should of seen the other guy. Just kidding? Get well soon!

Default off work....

Rocky,
Sorry to hear you are out of the running for a bit. I am sure you will bounce back but don't rush it.
We will however be counting the days you are not working and paying taxes. Keep in mind, our 'uncle' needs the $$.
Hope you make an easy recovery.
Mike
