Here's me. I "fell down and went boom" on Thursday. We had freezing rain in Toronto, and despite my experience as a curler, I still managed to have a wicked wipe-out that dislocated my right shoulder. I was lucky that nothing was broken, and that I didn't have to wait in the ER at all. I was also lucky to get some awesome drugs. "I want full sensory deprivation and backup drugs, sweetie!" (Edina Monsoon, Absolutely Fabulous)
Ironically, just as I was on an iv and oxygen at St. Michael's Hospital, my friend Peter was leaving a voice message for me at work warning of the icy conditions outside.
So, I'll be in a sling (and not the fun kind) for a while. My work--and worse, my blogging--will be impeded. Sigh.
