I'm posting because I talk to some of you online who may have noticed I haven't been around much this week. Tuesday afternoon I went to the church tp help draw/paint some fish, whales, kelp, and other underwater stuff on our gymnasium wall at the church for next week's Bible School for the kids. Anyways, I was at the top of a 12' extension ladder that unbeknownst to me, did not have the rubber grip feet at the bottom. Well, after using the ladder in several locations, I was drawing the top portion of some kelp when the ladder started sliding out from the wall. I fell about 10 feet or so and landed with my legs tangled up in the rungs of the ladder. I'm supposed to see a podiatrist tomorrow, but as of right now, I've been told that my tendons actually pulled off a couple pieces of bone from my metacarpals in my left foot. I'm banged up in other places too. My entire left leg is scraped and bruised pretty decently. My left (drawing hand) is bruised up as well and I'm wondering if I broke a blood vessel. I literally broke a folding chair nearly in half with my face and my lip is pretty swollen and ugly along with a tooth that hurts and still feels slightly loose. Anyways, the point is that I'm banged up and the doctor doesn't want me up from the couch or bed with my foot elevated except to use the bathroom. So, even posting here is something I probably shouldn't be doing. Anyways, that's where I am. I'm sure I will be fine. I just need some time to heal up and get the doctor's ok to get things somewhat back to normal, except that I'll need crutches for a while. I hope to talk to you all soon and I'll try to check back here occassionally when I get up for "other things."
