Not a Nip Slip But…Slip + Fall = Break

Triquetral avulsion fracture.

That’s the name of the break I sustained.xray

I slipped and fell in this ditch Sunday evening in our upper yard as I was looking for coyotes in the hill on the other side of our property.

I was wearing flip flops (not smart) and my hand broke my fall, but then I broke my hand.

SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT…ditchAt first I thought it was just a sprain or torn ligaments, but the pain was really, really bad, so I had it X-rayed and the doc confirmed my suspicions.

I’m in a removable cast for about six weeks — no weightlifting but I can do anything else that doesn’t cause pain.

My hand is super swollen and all bruised up, too.

I might not be able to lift weights, but there’s nothing to prevent me from shopping!

Typing hurts, so I’ll have to quit for now…at least my tugboat man’s here to help — although it hasn’t really put a dent in his surfing, but I always like to look on the bright side — he’s here to drive me to the mall.

I never did see any coyotes but I snapped a pic of this amazing hawk in our eucalyptus tree.
