I pulled a conniecat stunt and am now laid up in the hospital. My son and I were carrying a cedar chest upstairs from the basement and were trying to manuever a left turn. As we were doing this my foot slipped and twisted. I knew immediately that this was not good. I knew it was broken and would need surgery. My sweet son also knew immediately and asked me if I needed to go to the hopsital. This was Saturday. I broke my leg and ankle in 4 places, one of which is actually shattered. I had surgery on Sunday morning, with rods, plates and screws. The doctor estimated that I will be off work for 18 weeks. I have to learn how to walk without putting any weight on my right foot and leg before I can go home. Not as easy as it sounds. I feel sooooooooooo stupid!!! All I think about is all the things I should have done to prevent this. My DS also feels bad. It isn't his fault, he just isn't responsible for the dumb thing his mom did. I do love this boy. He has been great, even carrying me out to the van to drive me to the hospital. If anyone could please say a few prayers for me, this is going to be a long recovery. Thanks in advance.
