I can safely say I am glad to see the back of last week!
It all started with a rush to the post office in the rain. The bag order was late so I dashed out of the studio in my flip flops and drove into town. I then dashed to the post office - well I tried to... I ended up stumbling and landing on my front in the middle of the road...
A whole coach load of Highgrove visitors were treated to me collapsed in the road unable to breath due to using my chest as airbags! (By the way it doesn't work - it hurts like hell!)
After being helped to my feet and given a cup of sweet tea by my lovely friend Sarah at The Yellow Lighted Bookshop, she phoned my amazing friend Helen who came and took me home. I have to admit I have never felt quite so terrible and idiotic!
On Tuesday still in pain I went to see the hospital in Tetbury - 2/3 badly bruised possibly fractured ribs - they can't do anything either way, it is just a long and painful road to recovery. I was told to keep moving - like I have a choice with 3 small boys on my own!!!!
The rest of the week has been a blur of pain, pain killers and anxious little boys. My boys have never seen me crumple... I am there no matter what holding their hands through all the things they achieve and deal with.
I have managed to work on my Hexy MF hexagons, but mostly I have sat kinda stunned in the living room watching movies and trying to not upset the fine balance and cause pain.
I have reached Saturday and just about got the pain meds right - made another visit to the doctor and asked for something stronger!
The doctor was very sweet, but said I would need pain killers of another week - another week of feeling doped out, but at least I can move and sit fairly normally...
I am so glad I have my Hexy MF quilt along to focus on, my flowers in Summersville fabrics are making me smile!
