I’m plastered and legless and I’ll be like this for 15 weeks, hehe. The hospital night nurse asked me about my pain, between 1 and 10? So I said ‘7’. She looked surprised. She must be new, all I want is the morphine pill and a ‘6’ won’t get it.

  1. OM Gosh! What the heck happened? Wishing you all the wellness in the world! Take real good care of your leg, give it plenty of rest, pay attention to your physical therapist and you maybe dancing in no time at all! Gentle dancing that is.

  2. I spent almost a year in plaster, years ago – so I feel your pain. I wish you patience during what will no-doubt be a recovery process MUCH longer than you wish, no matter how quickly you are back to your old self — and that you quickly reach the place where you no longer need the pain medication. My mood improved considerably once that happened for me — even though I was extremely grateful for it when I needed it.

    Onward and upward!
