A Little Accident.

It looks like I'm bedridden and must use tons of ice roks and crutches for 7 days :(((
This morning, while I was doing acrobatics to bring a chest of drawers downstairs, helped by my Dad, to have it painted in the garden, something didn't work correctly and it heavily landed on my foot... After many hours spent at the hospital and X-ray,  doctors assured me that all will be OK in a week or so. My foot is not at its best right now,  but it's not broken! Phewwww... I'm so grateful.
Hope your day was better than mine!

  1. Oh no! I hope you get to feeling better. I've hurt my feet many many times and it is not fun. Please take it easy and rest up. (HUGS)

  2. I'm so sorry! Maybe you could put the ice on the foot, sit in a chair, out in the sun, and spray paint the chest!

    OR, you could just take it easy for a week! Yeah, choose the latter choice! Rest....

  20. I found you through livelaughmakesomething. I am sorry about your foot. My hubby just injured himself doing a high-kick at one of his rock shows. We've been putting a natural topical ointment on it called "arnica gel". Have you heard of it? It does wonders!

  21. Monica, I'm sorry to hear you had that accident.
    Hope you're feeling better soon !

  22. Oh dear, do get well soon!
    I'm sure being bedridden will not stop you creating something beautiful Monica!


  23. Monica I am so sorry to hear what happened to your foot!!! I hope that you heal up fast and are back on your feet again soon.
    I loved your beautiful WW post and the pictures are so gorgeous. I sure heard you when you said that you are going to relax more and let your body rest when it needs to. This is something I MUST learn as well.
    Take it easy my friend.

  24. Monica, I hope you're feeling better very soon! I hate when things like that happen, but I praise God that your foot is going to be okay. Still, it hurts!

    I've been MIA for the last several weeks and will be again after tonight. We are pressing forward with the work on our retreat, and I've been working alongside the workmen with my own tasks. Can't wait for this to be done so I can blog again. Miss everyone.

    Feel better! I hope you're up and around again very soon.

  27. Oh dear Monica,

    I am sorry this is the first time I have had to sit down and catch up.
    I was sad to hear that you have injured your foot.
    That must have been so painful as it is such a tender part of the body.
    I do hope that you are feeling better and getting lots of rest. Do take care.
