Tuesday morning while working on my last blog post, my hubby mentioned he needed to work on his abs. Being the good wife I am, I got up to show him some yoga poses that help with ads. Not thinking about the fact that I was wearing socks. As I shifted poses from plank to three legged dog my foot slipped out from under me and I cam crashing down on my toe.

After lying in a heap for a while hubby helped me up and I hobbled to a chair. When I got up the courage to look at my big toe it was facing in the wrong direction. A trip to instacare revealed it was broken, and I was referred to an orthopedist. I was told I would most likely need surgery. I was totally bummed. This couldn’t have happened at a worse time. I was teaching my Crazy Love quilt on Thursday and I was suppose to leave today with my middle son. He has gotten a job in Omaha, and I was helping him move. Since I would be of no help. My son left on his own a day early so he would be able to spread out the travel. Which turned out to be a good thing. His Honda was not happy pulling the trailer and he had to go really slow. So thankful we have relative in Cheyenne that let him spend the night, before heading on to Omaha.

I called the quilt shop to let them know what had happened. I still really wanted to teach, but couldn’t drive. They offered to come get me and take me home after. I told them I have great neighbors and would find a ride there if they would please take me home. In the mean time the orthopedist, who probably thought I was crazy. Not only did I have the story of how I broke my toe but why I couldn’t have surgery on Thursday because I was teaching a quilt class.

He gave me the option of numbing my toe and then manipulating it to get the bone lined up and my toe pointing in the right direction. He said he would check it in a week. If it was still aligned I could avoid surgery. No surgery sounded pretty good to me, though the manipulation did not. I bit the bullet and let them numb my foot. I didn’t feel a thing! My toe is facing the right way! And with any luck I will avoid surgery.
|Fun binding detail on Angela’s quilt|
I taught my class yesterday. It was a huge success! Everyone was so understanding of me having to sit and them come to me for demos and questions. Thanks to Angela (did you see her awesome Yarn Bomb Tree quilt from last month’s class? Don’t you love her big stitch binding?) who went around and took pictures for me.
I feel so loved and blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life. Who take time to help me out when I do something so dumb as yoga in socks.
