Bad Blogger

Well I am really sorry about my lack of blogging and it is not because of lack of topics. I have so much to share. I want to finish telling you about my Bali trip, James first birthday, smoking and other things. But today we had another forray into the wonderful healthcare system of Malaysia. This morning while trying to be a helpful husband, Brian accidentally did not get a set of glass nesting bowls all the way up on the shelf. They crashed down about 28 inches and shattered the biggest two bowls. When I tell you glass was everywhere you just have to believe me, it was like the bowls had exploded. After removing both children who happened to be standing in the kitchen and checking to see they had not a scratch on them. I went in to deal with Brain. He was bleeding from his foot and after getting it to stop I decided he needed stitches. After calling some friends to come and watch the kids, and changing I came down stairs and Brian announced that he could not move his big toe. After having a look he was right it seems that the glass landed directly on top of his extensor tendon and sliced it in half. We went to the ER and that was confirmed by the surgeon. Brian went into surgery at about four. I just left the hospital everything went fine and he was ready for some sleep. Amazing I have four orthopedic surgeons on speed dial for over seven years and we never once had to call them. And in the last two months we have both needed to see one. Dr. Rechter you are truly missed. Well I am off to bed. I will do my best to catch up on my blogging soon. Blessings to all.

I am so glad to hear that everyone was (relatively) safe! Yikes---it could have been worse. Thankfully, Brian is okay.

I hate cleaning glass---it's so difficult to get all the tiny shards. I pray that all the pieces are taken care of and there are no more injuries from this accident.
