Thursday, April 2nd was very windy. I took my dog for a quick walk before I went to the studio as planned. A large branch fell out of a tree and crashed on my head! I slowly melted to the ground as I saw stars and tried to catch myself by landing on my right knee and left hand. My hero is my baby boy, Chibi, who licked my face and barked until I woke up. ( only seconds) I quickly got up and got home, put on a splint and iced my head and wrist. Thought I'd go on to the studio to take my mind off of my aches but once there I decided I'd better call the hand Dr. because my left hand was hurting like it did when I broke my thumb. Dr. Fredrick was in surgery all day so I went to the Carrell Clinic Emergency ( best place in town for non-life threatening emergencies) Had a possible concussion and broken wrist. Dr. Wu sent me with a prescription for pain, x-rays and directions to follow. After tutoring I was in severe pain, which is unusual for me. Slept little and still hurt quite a bit. Still don't know much more - have to return on April 13 to get re-x-rayed because this kind of break doesn't show up right away. Very boring and painful way to start April. I do have some paintings to post from my trip. Will do that soon.
