The Saga Continues...

It's been awhile since I've been here. I thought I better post a little update on my situation. My husband is still suffering from complications of his injuries. Surprisingly, the broken clavicle is healing swimmingly. Though the plate the surgeon installed has lifted.

The plate lifting was my husband's fault. He felt he was up to replacing the hubs on our truck. While working on the second hub, he lifted the tire too quickly, twisted, and felt a pop. The surgeon took Xrays and discovered the plate screw on the outer part of the clavicle pulled out some.

Of course the doctor scolded him. I also had a few choice words for him. The end result is the plate is still in, though not seated. At some point in the future he may have to have it removed. This is not causing him any pain.

On the other hand, his foot is giving him a lot of trouble. The ankle was getting better and suddenly it started swelling again. It is almost unbearable for him to walk on. Since he works on his feet all day, every day, he is having a lot of issues. I took him back to the doctor and they say the bone is fused and looks good. This does not go along with what he's feeling.

We are frustrated. We are looking at another doctor to check his foot out. On my last post, I received a comment from a fellow blogger about how they had to get operated on twice for their broken foot. I hope this is not the case for my husband.

At this point, he is missing about a day of work a week. Thankfully his employer is sympathetic and he has some vacation. He is thinking about getting a desk job...

The teen is a licensed driver now. We bought her a car, a Honda Accord, and she seems to be doing quite well. However, I only let her drive to and from school and on school related activities. She also must call me upon arrival and departure.

I cannot believe I survived teaching the teen to drive. My heart is doing well and my blood pressure is pretty much back to normal.

I really miss keeping my blog and reading all my favorites' posts. I hope to get back to normal after we see the new doctor.

I hope everyone is doing well. Take care!

  1. Hi! I was wondering where you got to and this post explains everything.

    Now, us men are just unbelievable at times, aren't we? I can just imagine the words you used to curse poor dear old hubby. Probably the same words when I cross my better half. Give hubby my best and good to see you back.

    Take Care,

  2. Good to see you back, hope things are going better by now. I had been concerned.

  3. Missed you, glad you're back, but understandable, oh my, yes!

  4. Wonderful! you are so right and I needed to hear this.
