.....................due to a badly sprained right wrist. Tuesday lunchtime saw me venturing into the garden to find out what the dogs were barking at. There is quite a large area of decking in our garden & on this decking there is a large patch where the rain/leaves overflow off the conservatory falls resultin in a very slippery deck. In my haste to see what the dogs were going beserk at, I rushed outside & slipped onto my backside & landing on my right wrist.My left hand landed in dogs mess, which has given my husband a good laugh, but made me even angrier at the dogs as it was their blooming fault in the first place!!
I iced & rested the wrist (as per nhs direct instructions) & the next day the wrist was stiff & only slightly sore. Unfortunately, as Mum to 3, life carried on & I may have slightly overdone it yesterday, resulting in a visit to A&E this morning. After a x-ray & 5 hour wait, I was told it was only sprained & given a splint to wear till Monday.
Now, normally this enforced rest would be very welcomed. However this weekend sees Lilly-Rose turn 2 (How?? Wheres my baby gone? :-( Going by too quick), therefore a cake needs baking & decorating, & a baby blanket needs crocheting for Hubbys new baby nephew who was born this week. Im too busy to be resting!!!!!
But I guess I need to take it easy as my Mum helpfully informed me that sprains can take 6 weeks to heal!! Which is not an option!!
Anybody fancy baking, decorating or crocheting for me please??
