Patched up

Dad, as you may know, fell off a ladder and broke his arm quite badly a couple of weeks ago. The break went right up into the shoulder joint. He had to wait ten days for reconstructive surgery as it took that long for the swelling to go down enough.
He lost 10 lbs in those few days as he was feeling nauseated most days. Dad always gets queasy when he has suffered any sort of trauma.
Anyway they were able to patch him up, a bit like Humpty Dumpty, really! With a few pins and plates he is back together again. Fortunately they did not have to resort to a joint replacement afterall. Once he was patched up he started to feel much better.
Ill be going up to see him again this weekend with my sister and some of the kids. Nothing like a pile of family dropping in to cheer you up eh?
Other than that, we have had it pretty quiet around here lately.
I work nights now for a couple of shifts, then im off for four days which will be nice.
A couple of days ago we had news that My ex sister in Law, Addie was in a car accident. She had been medicated for some dental work and was probably too groggy to drive, but did anyways. And she blacked out and ran into a pole. Shes badly bruised up , but fortunately, no other injuries. She puts her lack of serious injury down to her guardian angel Kayla watching over her. She is supposed to be coming out soon to BC from Alberta to visit her kids, Troy, Nick and Lexi who live here in Maple Ridge with their dad. Hopefully she will get here soon, as they are all looking forward to seeing their Mom.
I had beter get a bit of rest before I run off to work for the night.
Have a great week!

Why am I smiling in that pic?

I am on Osoyoos Lake in a boat, the only way to get close to the nude bathing area on the sandy patch behind me. However, we didnt get too close as the boat was taking on water and we headed back to the dock instead. It was a rental.

I'm so glad your dad is recovering nicely, Susan. Also, hope your sil gets to visit her children soon.

Have a wonderful day! :)

LOL Well your Dad seems lively enough in spite of his injury judging by that comment about the nude sunbathing area. Too cute. Hope you're having a nice Summer, Susan:)

I'm happy to hear your Dad aka Evil CanEvil is doing better.
It's to bad he missed going to China though.
