A Post of Personal (Non-complaining) News  
Are those new shoes? They are fabulous! And that color!!!

So...as I have mentioned in the past, I have two sisters, one with whom I live and one who lives in Baltimore.

This past Tuesday, the sister with whom I live went to the dentist and learned that the reoccurring facial pain she kept having was caused by a tooth that had split vertically. The split was so small, our regular dentist failed to find it. However, it had gotten infected (again), causing major pain. The new dentist scheduled a root canal for today. Naturally she was dreading it but I said I'd take her if she wanted me to.

That offer was withdrawn when our sister in Baltimore called Wednesday night and told us she'd suffered an accident, breaking her right shoulder. (Yes, she is right handed.) The ER splint it and said she'd need to go see an orthopedist today. Of course I told her I'd come to Baltimore to help out. On Wednesday, she said no, she thought she'd be okay. Yesterday she called and asked me if I'd come. Which I did. The drive from my house to Baltimore isn't a bad one except that Washington DC is between her and us. There's no good way around it so it took me over an hour to get through the DC traffic (20 miles in 90 minutes maybe?). That traffic jam seemed to take as long as the rest of the trip combined.

We went to the orthopedist this morning. He told her she had fractured her shoulder in three places. Three places!!! She could have surgery or she could do without surgery and lose a little mobility. Surgery or not was entirely up to her. She decided not. Her arm will be in a splint and an immobilizer for two weeks. Then she'll be in just a splint.

I helped her change clothes tonight and her arm is an Aurora borealis of colors.

Because I don't like being away from home, I asked if she'd come to our house instead. Since she's out of work for two weeks, she said she would. (This request isn't as selfish on my part as it sounds - for a lot of reasons.)

My classes start Monday, August 18 so I'll bring her back to Baltimore the weekend before.

If I don't post or update my story any time soon, I hope my faithful readers will understand.

Love to you all.

Oh goodness! That could have been so much worse. I hope your sister with the dental pain is also going to be okay

She called tonight and said it wasn't so bad. Her mouth is a little sore but not as bad as it could have been.

Are you doing okay?

That's good.

I'm alive, so yes, I'm okay, but overall blah. My aunt died yesterday and my dad is getting weaker and my dad's sister (who I don't like) is coming to visit us for a couple of days next week. I don't want forced family time so I might get started on a fic for a big bang

Sounds like you're going to have an interesting few weeks. Hope both of your sisters are feeling better soon!

DC traffic is a nightmare!!! All of the times that we've driving to Williamsburg, VA and also to DC I don't think there was ever a time that I didn't hit any traffic!

Thanks for the hugs. Right now, I need them!

DC traffic is the WORST!!!! And the roads are always, always under construction.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Just when you think they're done doing construction one more road is being ripped apart or something is being added!

Off to get my hair cut and colored today and the plan is to stay home on Sunday.

Enjoy the weekend!
