Instead of enjoying a leisurely brunch with the fabulous 5 (Fran, Amy, Julie, Maria and Sarah), after what should have been one of my most favourite weekends ever, am sat in hospital waiting for surgery on my shoulder!!
What happened? Thursday afternoon, after picking up some essential supplies for my weekend retreat with the Strip Bee ladies, I tripped on a bit of pavement, catapulted forward, took the full impact of the fall on my shoulder and dislocated it! Ouch! Oh well, methinks, they'll 'pop' it back in, it'll be a bit sore but I'll be ok. No. Not even close. Yes they popped it back in ... eventually ... but I've damaged the humerus very badly. Have broken it in 3 places and the ball and socket are damaged too. Double ouch :(
It's a bit tricky taking a one-handed selfie but you have to have some pictures! And I have a great view from my bed out over the River Thames:
It's even trickier typing this up left-handed on my iPad! Yes, I broke the good side!! Hopefully, the operation will take place tomorrow and I'll recover well.
I am soooooooooooo very sorry that our weekend did not take place, ladies. I'm sorry not to have met you, I'm sorry not to have quilted with you, I'm sorry we didn't get to exchange our quilts, I'm sorry all your plans were halted ... I hope to be able to make it up to you one day.
Promise to keep you updated :)
