Nurse Grayce here, with Breaking News!
Mommy fractured her kneecap!
In two pieces.
She's part of the lucky one percent of broken bone sufferers that have a busted patella. Furthermore, and even rarer, it's a vertical break. Which means it's not quite as serious and she still can move her lower leg up and down--although she's keeping her knee straight, for now. She's off work on workman's comp until (at the very least) she sees an orthopedic surgeon on Thursday. So much for working eighteen days in a row...
We have all been
making total pests of ourselves nursing Mommy non-stop. She says it hardly hurts at all; however when she went to the human fix-it shop on Monday the repair lady there made her squeal like a little girl when she bent her knee past where it wanted to go. Three times. Which I feel makes up for the lack of Ye Olde Rectal Thermometer treatment.
The worst part of the whole situation is that our breakfasts are late again!
Mommy is LAME.
No really, she is.
