...Anita took a nasty fall last week, breaking four metatarsals in her left foot and fracturing the right tibial plateau (the top edge of the tibia, where it meets the bottom of the kneecap). She spent four nights in hospital, and is now in a rehab hospital, since she can't walk at all (cannot put any weight on the right leg, and can only hobble on the heel of the left, with a "boot").
She will be OK, but has another six to eight weeks of being very limited in what she can do. If she'd done both injuries on the same leg, she'd be much better off!
Needless to say, I've been more than busy. This house often felt empty over the last eight months; with Anita away, it's even more so.
