Can't catch a "break"

Well, the Holiday's are in full swing at our house. Britt decided to hang lights on the house yesterday afternoon while the weather was still nice. He made it all the way until the last 4 lights.

The ladder slid down the driveway and he went down with it. About 15 feet total. He finally decided to go get x-ray's and found out he sprained both of his wrists and broke his right elbow. He will see the Orthopedic surgeon on Thursday to find out what they are going to do. UGH!

Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. Hope they have him on good meds... and hope this doesn't get in the way of a happy holiday season at your house.

Oh my gosh how scary. I'm glad he's ok, and hope they don't have to do surgery.

We know a family friend who got a hemmorage in his brain after falling off a ladder. So glad that it seems to be all stuff that fixable--hopefully he won't need surgery.

I hope he's doing a little better this week. Don't count on him putting up Christmas lights next year.

Oh!No! Hoping like Katy that he will not need surgery, and, ahem, elbows mend much easier than heads. Barbara
