    Angry I broke my femur

    Well Damn,

    Sunday morning the 27th I thought I might have broken my leg - femur when getting into a new wheelchair I've had for 3 weeks. I went into ER today for x-rays and yep it's broken - right at my hip. They are not going to do anything with it…. I just have to be careful as I can for a month and try not to move it much. I know now why I've been hurting the past few days.

    Kinda of funny… my hip actually hurts more on a day to day basis than this leg.

    Just got to keep on trucking...
    I'll be good to go in a month.

    Thumbs up I should heal up fine.

    It sounds a lot worse than it is... I mostly just have to be real cautious getting in and out of bed and not bounce around outside for a month.

    I'm really fine as it's nothing real serious or unseen dangers. Something I've known and more so in my these recent years ...getting old... But I am at extreme high risk. I just never wanted it to happen. Glad it's indoor weather now. Spend time working on my small computer glitches.

    I was thinking, "Oh shit!?!"

    That doesn't sound like any fun at all. Glad we can commiserate with you. Hope it heals quickly and with out too much discomfort.

    Should we all send you a bottle of whiskey? That's how they always healed up in the old westerns. And you are an old westerner by your own admittance.

    I've been go, go go all day a nurse visit, a OT, PT tomorrow... I'm dragging butt today...

    But I can honestly say I'm feeling better overall. I did not abuse, pull, roll on my leg like I would normally or have been since I broke it until yesterday.
