everthing is fine . . .

to borrow a line from our cute ann dee ellis.

so i now have a plate and seven screws in my wrist. like i always say go big or go home. not that i ever say that. but dude. i will be setting off alarms at airports for the rest of my freakin' life. how cool is that.

okay. i'm slower at writing with one left finger than i am at texting. but whatever. i've got lots and lots of time.

here's what happened. kathy and i were running down j street so we can be all fit and healthy and extremely awesome old ladies. except i stepped on a loose stone and pitched forward amd kind of rolled downhill in a very unawesome old lady way. i won't lie. it hurt. but i figured my wrist was just sprained and i wouldn't let kathy go get her car. we walked home. i called my brother the docor who has apparently forgiven me for turning the garden hose on him when i was four and he was two and trapped in an outdoor playpen--anyway he's always way happy to attend to our family's little emergencies. so q drove me out to bountiful with the emergency brake on where i gotsome x-rays and the news about the surgery.

so there you have it. really everthing is good. i have dr pepper and freaks and geeks to watch. my kids and girls are being great amd i appreciate your kind posts.

Ann!

I didn't even know you had surgery. Glad you are doing better.

Does this mean you can't do flips on your skateboard anymore?? LOL

Take care.

Very glad to hear this. I assume, also, that you have some good dope? I'm just remembering that when running son had wrist surgery, there was serious pain medication. Anyway, I hope you're feeling no pain, what with Freaks & Geeks and Dr.P &c.

Ack! I'm horrified and appalled! I hate pain! Get better fast.

Ann! Get better soon! Glad the surgery went well though.

Don't brag about setting off airport alarms; my underwire bra does that.

Gah! I hope they gave you pain pills!

Yay--also, wow (about plates and pins. . .not to mention what younger brother must have done to GET them there. . WAS it younger brother who did this surgery?. . .are brothers allowed to do surgery? What if they have sudden flashbacks to incidents in playpens?. . ) Anyway, here's to you, pain meds, Dr. Pepper, and a new American Idol! (that's who you meant by freaks and geeks, right? Simon and Paula?)

Way to go, Ann! You are for sure a totally awesome, soon to be running again, lady - WITH A PLATE AND SCREWS IN HER WRIST.

That is cool.

Sorry about the fall. Enjoy your D.P.
