    I am so sorry to hear about your accident. Hope you get in quickly with your orthopedic surgeon to get things taken care of and that you get to rebook your cruise in the near future. It is definitely a double whammy.. Take care.

    Hey ladies (and guys) NO more falling!!!! Seriously, falling is bad enough, but having to cancel a cruise is just plain terrible. Get better fast!

    KK, with all the bruising you described I'm glad to hear it's only your arm that is broken. Praying your recovery will be a speedy one. Sorry about the cruise.

    hi everone -- i am back from my orthopedic doctors.

    i have a 'y' break in the radius bone -- almost like 2 fractures.

    they removed the soft cast and i selected a blue cast for the next 6 weeks -- then i will have a portable cast for 4 weeks. they will determine then how many sessions and weeks of therapy i will need. each week i have to go back for exrays to make certain that the bone is healing properly.

    i just hope that i will be able to make our june 10 alaskan cruise.

    thank you everyone for the kind words, thoughts and prayers.

    KK, I am so sorry to hear this news. Of course, your health comes first, yet I know you are also very upset about the timing.

    Thank you for keeping us updated... from the sounds of your injuries, it would seem that typing is quite painful. Thoughts and prayers are on their way.

    In the old days, you broke a bone, went to the doctor, they put it in a cast, told you to come back in two months, took the cast off, you moved on with your life......
    Modern medicine sure has made its impact

    yes things have changed

    yesterday was a long day

    first i had to see my doctor as i am still having a lot of pain in my ribs - especially on the right side

    then i had x-rays done of the ribs -- hope to soon get a report on them

    I hope that your pain eases and you didn't break any ribs. It sounds like you have a road ahead of you with PT and cast changes! I hope the bone heals completely so you can get back to cruising soon!
