Fractured Elbow and Sprained Arm
I had such a fabulous time last weekend in Monterey, Carmel, and San Francisco California until the last night when I sadly (not to mention) lamely fractured my elbow, sprained my arm, and went into shock. Seriously though, I don't really even know what happened other than we were leaving fisherman's wharf and heading back to our car when I tripped on the edge of a torn up one foot plus storm drain curb and face planted into the asphalt. It happened so fast. One scary thing I do recall was thinking, "I'm going to crack my head open when I hit..." before plunging into the hard asphalt. Thankfully and miraculously this did not happen! I'm very lucky and blessed that such a hard fall didn't shatter my elbow, my arm, or my noggin. This happened the last night of our trip-Go BIG and then go home right?! For the record, I'm not clumsy at all, however, I am a bull in a china closet. Any who, this is so lame! Thankfully, since I'm an adult my doctor won't cast me because I'd lose mobility. Thus, I've got my sexy gray sling. Isn't it a fancy accessory? It brings out the color in my eyes and makes my chest look bigger.............moral of the story, WATCH OUT FOR BROKEN CURB STORM DRAINS AT FISHERMAN'S WHARF BECAUSE THEY'RE SURE TO GET YA!!!!! Side note: hurt like a buggar!!!
