I Spy Halloween Special: Find the Broken Bone!

Last night for Mischief Night, I went to see Saw 7 in 3D. It was the same Saw as all the others and I didn't think it had to be in 3D. Are they doing more 3D to get more money in ticket sales? Although I do know they use more specialized cameras but there didn't seem to be enough gore flying at you to warrant the 3D glasses. But the ending did leave you to believe that this may not be the Final Saw....

But that's not what this I Spy is about! After I came home from the movie, I was ready to settle in for the night and knock out just a few more pair of earrings for a big order. I jumped in my PJs and came downstairs and slipped on the last steps which caused me to slam my hand against the stair railing where I heard a pronounced "snap". Just like the sound of bones snapping in several scenes of Saw 7 I just witnessed just a half hour before but this was for real. Searing, stinging pain. And anger at myself for being so stupid as to cause any sort of damage to my right hand, my number one tool in what I do for a living. Do I have to think about insuring my hands now??

So simpering over to my dozing husband Michael on the sofa, I blubbered "I think I broke something." and he took one look at it and said, "Let's go to the emergency room." Fun! Emergency room on a Saturday night, Mischief Night of all nights.

2 1/2 Hours later I was on my way home with x-rays and a throbbing appendage. No sleep that night, even with the special pill the Doc gave me. But I did come up with this I Spy and thought it so fitting for All Hallow's Eve. A special edition! I am okay, and I'm working around it, albeit trying to avoid smacking it into anything is a little rough. It smarts when you tap it! I have to go see an orthopedic doctor this week as the hospital didn't feel it warranted calling in one to take care of it then and there.

Oh, bummer Melinda. I'm sorry that you broke it, but I would have thought for sure that you'd have a funny story about how it happened, especially considering the finger. I'm glad it's healing, but you're right, there isn't much that can be done with it and I don't blame you for skipping any further visits. Popsicle sticks and tape would have worked well. :-)

It's getting better but still a tad sore. And I think it will be a bit malformed so no hand modeling for me! Thanks for stopping by EosMom
