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, I am so sorry you are hurt and had to cancel your cruise. I hope you get taken care of by the doctor and are on your way to mending. Hopefully you can reschedule another cruise for yourself very soon.

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.

Thank you for the update, Yonnie. I pray your recovery goes smoothly. June is a long way off - think positively.

Last night I posted a note about your accident on the other board where you contribute.

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

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!
