Aw, crap

I broke my leg late Tuesday afternoon. A spiral fracture of the right distal tibia, to be exact. It kinda sucks. I was turning around in my apartment, caught my right foot on a table, which caused me to spasm and really wrench the foot/angle/leg, snapping my leg. Ow.

Not sure about treatment just yet. I'm splinted up. It's a little scary if I think about it.

I'm so very sorry to read this. I hope the treatment isn't too miserable and that you indulge in many treats until you're on the mend.

I read about your accident with horror. Someone asked me who my favorite poet was. I didn't hesitate to say Paul Guest. Be well.

Really sorry to hear this - hope you heal quickly. On the plus side, I got an Amazon notice this week telling me your book is shipping earlier than expected, by about a week I think?
