who the hell is bucky? - crabby

....the one where I broke my leg

Yup, I did it this morning slipping on a dew-covered hillside out walking the dogs. It's not a bad break. I fractured it just above the ankle. We were supposed to leave for vacation for three weeks tomorrow but we were just driving to see family so we aren't out plane tickets. I find out after I see the bone doc if I have to have surgery. If not, then it is 6 to 8 weeks in a cast for me. It's my right ankle so no driving for me for a while. Argh. The pain isn't too bad unless I jar it and then Holy Cow! I will use this opportunity to become a whiz on crutches and build up those arm muscles.
