Life Interupted

Hubby and I were on track to go hiking Saturday. He had the rare day off, lunch packed and everything prepped and ready to go.
We knew we would have to cross mill Creek several times. This was the first crossing.

Another crossing.
I can't help but admire the old ponderosa pines- such stately trees!

All was well, until the 4th or 5th river crossing. Hubby jumped off a big log and twisted his ankle. He was able to hobble 2 miles back to the car. His foot was still very swollen and getting more and more black and blue and he finally let me drive him to urgent care last night.  He will get xrays today but the Dr is positive he has fractured his ankle. Because we own a business I made him sit on the stool as much as possible and was covering for him and when he is home I make him prop it up, so I've easily forgotten how much he does around here!  Sewing has taken a back seat to life so far this week.

On another note, I've seen so many wonderful quitls from the exchange! I couldn't be more thrilled!!

Happy Tuesday!!

  3. I hope he heals quickly. Kind of a nice change of gears to step in and cover for him, nice you can do it. Looks like a lovely place to hike.

  4. I'm so sorry about the accident. I broke my own ankle while hiking several years ago. (It was my right ankle, and I quickly figured how to run my sewing machine pedal with my left foot.) I'll be praying for a speedy recovery.

  6. Looks like it was a lovely outing before the accident!
    My husband broke his ankle several years ago and has had no problem with it since. Wishing your husband a similar rosy scenario after some recuperation!

  9. Not the kind of outing you had planned, for sure. You never know what is around the bend in life, do you? Here's hoping it will be a break that can mend without surgery!!
    Lovely little quilts around blog land, Lori. I have been inspired. : )

  16. That is always my worst fear when hiking, I usually take ace bandages with me, just in case. I hope it is just sprained, breaking a foot in the nice weather is not fun. I see we dress alike, I love the roll up pants so I can have them any length to fit the weather.

  17. Oh, no! :-( I'm glad you two own your business and can make that part of it work.

  18. Oh no! Hoping he has a speedy recovery. It's already been a difficult month for you and your family.

  19. Oh, dear :( I can empathize with you and him. My DH (73) fell from a 10' ladder in 2012 and shattered his left ankle. It wasn't fractured...it was shattered. He had 4 surgeries within 10 weeks and developed a terrible infection that almost took his life. It's taken almost 2 years for him to (almost) recover. He has to wear a specially made brace because there are no bones left in that ankle. Be thankful your husband didn't do more damage. Here's hoping he has a non-eventful healing.

  28. So sorry about DH's ankle. I had hoped that it wasn't broken. Once I got my foot in the 'boot' it felt so much better. I hope if he did fracture it that the cast or boot will bring him lots of pain relief fast.

  29. Wish we lived closer, we could come and help! Hope it is better news than what you first heard...

  30. Looks like a wonderful healthy hike - so unfair to end like that! Do hope he is fit again soon. Looking forward to seeing all the little quilts - there have been some beauties on the blogs I follow :)

  31. Hope hubby is on the mend - they (who is "they" anyway??) say that a break is generally better than tearing ligaments, etc. Maybe he just needed some TLC!

  32. Sending healing energy in your direction... Karen

  34. Sorry about your husband's ankle. Life sure has a way of diverging off the path. Your doll swap appears to have been a great success.

  35. Hope your DH is on the fast tracked mend, sewing is an essential part of life, ahem! Seriously, ankles are notoriously tricky so I do hope he makes a quick and full recovery. Please don't bother with replies you sound busy enough!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh no, so sorry your nice outing had a bad ending, I do hope you find a good ortho man
    to fix him right up. Meanwhile give him plenty of TLC

    Thanks again for doing the swap, I had a lot of fun making my little quilt.

    Happy Sewing

  37. Oh no! I do hope it's not as bad as feared. Either way, best wishes for a speedy recovery. I've seen some of the quilts - they are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  38. oh no, hope he is doing better - I'm always afraid this will happen to me when I'm with coco. some help she'd be!

  39. Gorgeous scenery!!! Too bad about the ankle. That is rough, and it puts a crimp in the plans, but he should be fine in the end. My oldest son just got a bad sprained ankle playing racket ball and is not having fun either.

  40. Lori, so sorry to hear about your husband. Hope he has an easy recovery. I wanted to let you know that I posted pics of both quilts (sent & received) from the doll quilt swap on my blog - anneelizablog.blogspot.com

  41. Oh... No!!! I hope it heals fast. Broken bone is better than torn tissues.. If there is any bright side to this. Your picture by the tree is beautiful!

  42. My husband broke his ankle in two places about 3 years ago. He was carrying one of the dogs down the stairs when he slipped on something. He tried to catch himself so that he wouldn't fall down the stairs - and landed funny on that ankle. The dog fell all the way down the stairs. (but Archer was okay thankfully) My husband required two surgeries ... one to insert a metal rod, and a couple months later a second surgery to remove some of the pins. He was off work for about 3 months. When he finally went back to work the company took him off their insurance - so we had to cover the physical therapy on our own. One of our other dogs was recovering from back surgery at the time ... so she was on a strict routine of medications. It was a hectic, hectic, hectic time. (oh -- and I quit smoking during that time too -- which added to the fun!)

  43. Sending speedy recovery wishes to your hubby! I do hope he heals quickly and is not uncomfortable. Thanks again for hosting the doll quilt swap, it has been super fun!

  44. having broken an ankle myself, I wish him all the best. The key my OT said was to keep off it as much as possible during the initial healing. My MIL took care of my 3 kids for three weeks so I wouldn't even put my foot on the floor, a heroic act of kindness I still am grateful for 20 years later.

  46. Darn!! I'm glad he was able to hobble back to the car - can't have been too fun! Ouch! Hope his ankle heals up quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sound like he is a pretty tough guy hobbling back to the car like that! Hope he feels much better soon.

  48. What a shame! Here's to a speedy recovery. Real life gets in the way sometimes; darn.
