If you're wondering where I've been...

...I've broken my ankle!!! :(

I thought you would enjoy another photo of my sweet little dachshund Lilly. She's keeping me company while I wait for surgery.

If you really want to know what happened, read on...

This past Friday, in the middle of the night, I woke up with a terribly painful cramp in the calf of my right leg. I tried to stretch and move to ease the pain, but it didn't let up. So, I stood up beside the bed, thinking that if I stood on it, it would relax. HA! Apparently, I blacked out because the next thing I remember is Mr Wonderful beside me on the floor asking me if I was alright. He tried to help me back into bed and I noticed my left ankle really hurt so I figured that I must have twisted it somehow when I fell. By morning I couldn't walk on it so we went to the ER to have it checked and sure enough it is fractured! They put a temporary cast on it to stabilize it and the ER DR said he thought it would need surgery and I should see a bone specialist. Today was the soonest I could get in, and yes it definitely needs surgery! Right now, it's scheduled for Friday a.m. I would be very grateful for your prayers.

Now, on a happier note... I've got some FUN photos to share with you of my trip to the Viva Las Vegas Rubber Stamp Store! Stay tuned ...

Not dancing, but still smiling,
