From the picture you can gather that I am not in my apartment eating my typical breakfast. I unfortunately had an accident while running Saturday morning – I simply took one bad step in a small hole in the road and ended up with a dislocated and broken hip.
I wasn’t doing anything crazy, no leaping or jumping, just a simple misstep and before I knew it my hip was mangled and I was heading to the hospital in an ambulance. I spent 4 hours in surgery and today I am on bed rest. I am not sure what lays ahead for the next few days but all I know is that I am prepared to work my hardest to recover quickly.
I am frustrated and unhappy that I have seriously injured myself but sometimes accidents just happen and all you can do is surround yourself with the people who love you and keep in good spirits.
I want to send out a huge thank you to all of the loved ones who have been by my side, physically and emotionally, as I go through this ordeal. And a special thank you to the most wonderful boyfriend in the world who slept on the floor of the hospital room and has been by my side every step of the way. I love you!
Here’s to hoping everyone had a safe and healthy weekend!
