I've become...well...injured!

I fractured my clavicle. Can you say CRAP? I cannot move my right arm over my head and forget trying to lift either of the boys – into the car or otherwise. God help me! I can see the bone protruding but not poking all the way through my skin.

I was trying with all of my might on Friday to lift Isaac out of a grocery cart (the large portion of the cart as the seat does not fit in the upper portion) into the SUV (the wind was gusting and it was roughly 20 degrees and I was worried about him freezing his tush off) and I heard a pop. I thought nothing of it and took some Ibuprofen. Needless to say, I was throwing a ball tonight over my head to Nora and it popped again, but this time it REALLY hurt. I have a large scale protruding nodule on my collar bone – huge – numb neck, shoulder and hands all the way to my finger tips. Super duper great!

I cannot worry about it tonight as Elliot has surgery tomorrow. But, I will have to head to the doctor.

Wait.

Do “I” have a doctor?

Well, I have an endocrinologist, an internist and an OB…but no darned GP. Looks like I’ll call one of the others for a referral. Joy!

Momma does not get sick. Momma does not hurt herself. Momma is strong. If all of this is really true, why does Momma want to crawl in a hole and hide? Anyone give me permission to hide for a few weeks?

UGH!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe that happened. It makes me hurt just reading about it! Not that any time would be good, but this is REALLY bad timing! I hope you aren't in too much pain and it heals easily.

You poor thing...How horrible. I'm so sorry. I totally know how you feel. A Mama's life cannot stop due to illness or injury. We gotta keep going.

I'm praying it will get better quick
