Well. It’s been one of those weeks and I keep hoping I’ll wake up from a bad dream. Last Saturday hubs fell about 15 feet from our truck shed. Luckily, he is alive. Luckily he will walk again. Unfortunately, he broke his femur on his right leg ending up with a steel rod and pins in his leg as well as crushing both of his heels… The femur is on it’s way to recovery but the heels will have to have surgery in the coming weeks. We are just hoping the tissue swelling is down soon so they can go ahead with the surgery. The longer we wait, the more the body will start healing itself which will kill the chances of fixing what needs to be fixed.
We have two trucks and two businesses that we run and a farm place that I will be in charge of for the next good while. We have 14 chickens and 5 cats that depend on us… Hubs will be in a nursing home for a while at least until they do the surgery on his feet and then we will go from there. We have been so lucky with working on our farm place, climbing on barns, trucks, trailers, and everything else in between… And I guess our luck ran out. Or hubs did anyway.
Next week I will have to go back to work. I will have to leave hubs two hours from home. Alone. Tonight I came home. Alone. It’s really quiet here, and although I love the country, and the piece and quiet, it’s really quiet tonight… My parents have my dog and although I love my cats I miss having another set of ears that knows what’s happening outside before I do.
Life 101… Some days it isn’t so great is it? Some days you expect one thing and get another. Some days you think life will roll along like it always has. Some days it jerks out of control like a bad car accident. I guess you just have to roll with it. And take it as it comes. One day at a time. But, like my vacation, I have learned to enjoy every moment you get because it can change so fast it’ll make your head spin!
