The rest of the story

I posted about watching my grandson's ice hockey game. I didn't post the tumble down the bleachers part. Who knew bleacher watching your grandkids was a dangerous sport. We were sitting on the top bleacher with my daughter and son-in-law. The top bleacher had a very steep step down very different from the rest of the bleachers. As we were leaving I noticed the younger grandson's truck on a lower bleacher and took by eyes off the immediate step down. Well your typical alternating step down pattern doesn't work so well when the steps aren't equally spaced. Oh yes, it was quite graceful, the beautiful tumble down to the floor. So embarrassing. I hopped right up and said I was fine. My hand hurt but no immediate visual concern. By Sat night, my finger was swollen. By Sun morning part of my finger was black and blue. But we had a Super Bowl party happening at my house and I was hoping the swelling would go down. Didn't think emergency room treatment was needed. So today the finger was no better and off to the orthopedic center and yes it's broke. It's the orthopedic center that treats the Raleigh Hurricanes ice hockey team ( how appropriate is that). So 24/7 in a splint for 3 weeks and then an X-Ray and hopefully lessening time in a splint and exercises to relieve stiffness. Son-law's mom hurt herself a year ago playing outside with the kids. Son-in-law said the grandma's needed to be wrapped in bubble wrap while watching the kids physical activities, Talk about making me feel like an 'old lady'.

You could have broken your neck taking that bad of a tumble. Isn't retirement fun???
Left or right hand? You a lefty or righty???

Hate it when you have stairs like that, just shouldn't be for the obvious reason. No more top bleachers for you! Hope you heal quickly, my friend.

It's amazing how many things you use your middle finger for. I couldn't get the leverage to open a package of snacks.

How the heck did you manage just the middle finger getting broken?
