It's rough out there

These days it seems like the entire household is banged up. The kids have had skinned knees and elbows since the weather got warm (nothing more serious recently, thank goodness). The Mrs. has been fighting a nasty case of plantar fasciitis for the last couple of months. I broke a bone in my hand. And the dog even got into the act by somehow ripping his dewclaw off.

I talked with my doc, and he says I just cracked the bone and doesn't think a hard cast is needed. So I'm wearing this brace and will have to get it x-rayed again in two weeks.

At least I don't have to wear a cone.

Sorry to hear about all the misfortune! The idea of you wearing a cone is too funny.

that's some bad mojo. Hope it turns for the positive.

Good deal on not having to wear a cone. I vote for the theory that bad juju travels in clumps and will soon pass by your neck of the woods.

Sorry to hear about your wrist! I broke mine in the spring from a crash, too. People kept asking if I had carpel tunnel or something -- "No, it was more awesome than that!"

Hope you're on the mend and soon.
