And now I know

I have always wondered what a broken bone would feel like- and now that I have two of my very own- I can gladly say "Now I know." I have no great advise for any one with broken bones- but its always good to share what we learn with others- RIGHT?

I have learned that hopping can be considered a form of transportation. Especially on those days when you just cant get along with your crutches. There's the single hop- that's when you hop once and then take a break before you hop again. (I started with this one) There's the double hop, that's when you hop twice without falling over-and then you take a break. (I have now mastered the double hop) and for those of you who are advanced hoppers- there is the ULTIMATE HOP- that's when you can hop everywhere you have to go. I strongly recommend a sports bra for this activity!

Again! You just make me smile!!! I love you!!! And I love your humor! And... even if it is only you and I "who get it" - it's ok - because we are different...remember ;)

I... however... would need more than the sports bra - I think if I'm ever in the predicament that you are in.. I'm just going to ask for a BODY CAST - just to hold it all in place - so I don't hurt something else .... SO, be glad you only need a sports bra.....

AND... I'd love to run away - 16/17 or 23/24 ??? Let me know when works for you....

Happy HOPPING!!!

I hear that you are having a hard time staying off it long enough to get the swelling down. Bailey said you must have A.D.D., she makes me laugh. Hope you are getting along ok.
