Default My September thread

I wanted to post that 21 years ago I had an accident about 5:30 to 6:00pm
off my back porch. Derrick and his little friend, my neighbor girl, and her
mother were the ones who came to my rescue. She was trying to figure
out what to do. She could tell I needed to go to the ER. But was trying
to figure out whether to send me in a ambulance, or wait and see if my
husband came home in a few minutes. He was due anytime. Which
he pulled, in just then. My mother-in-law lived next door at that point.
And offered to keep Derrick, and the neighbor knew we were worried
with his seizures for her to have him. And Devin was in the house. But
she said, if she had problems that they could come get her and she would
help. I spent hours in ER, had a dislocated elbow. And then was sent home
it was put back in place. With a warning, it might not stay so to be careful
and keep it elevated. And almost 10 days later, my son Devin took me to
the doctor, and it was out of place. He also had Derrick because he had
a appointment before mine. So my appointment, the doctor said, you are
headed across to get it put back in place, then we will see you in a week or
two for surgery as soon as they can get you a appointment. I said, wait.
I need to work on this. My son needs to take my other son, back to school,
and go to school. He asked what I meant, I told him what was going on.
He said, I'll take care of it. Give me your husbands phone number which
I did. He called him, told him to meet him at a certain time at the hospital.
And what he was doing, told him he wanted him to tell his son to take the two
kids back to school. And explain to the little ones teacher what was going on
and a note would come the next day for both, if one didn't come today.

But he had also sent one from his office for them. So they knew why I wasn't there. He was one of the nicest doctors I ever had with these kind of issues.

Derrick went to a program and gave his presentation for teeth this
morning. It went really well. So he got to give out about 20 sets.

He also picked up a shift at work tonight.

Elbow surgery, not sure it had a name. I had my radial arm replaced with
a metal one.

I was in a contraption for about 6 to 8 weeks, but started moving it
right away.

Not much anymore. I worked really hard in PT when I went and it
came back almost 100%. The ortho and PT neither one could believe
the amount of use I have with it. I was expected to not get more than
about 50 % back. But I just keep working, and no one had told me I
wasn't supposed to get it back. Till after I'd gotten more than 80% back.

Then the ortho said, wow you aren't supposed to get this much back.
I'm impressed. I said, well I have great therapist and just worked to
do it.

Its sometimes hurting when its cold out. But that is the main time.

Derrick baked on Thursday and Friday to take things to the Special Olympic
bake sale on Saturday. Then we worked it till 12 and went home to rest
till taking him to work. Because they had so many treats at the day.

We took some home and Derrick took the ones we didn't buy to work.
And they were a hit there. So much so I guess they called the main
manager trying to get a couple of the ones on the menu. Not Derrick
the other staff.

It was funny. He is so loved there it is so nice.
