Oh March

The month of March brings pretty flowers, rain showers, and joy! These things are all wonderful...until I have my annual bone break. For those of you who don't know my average March let me tell you how they have been for the past 3 years.

March 2009

I fractured the sesamoid bone at the head of my first meta tarsal bone. I actually had no idea the bone was broken until about 2 weeks after I broke it. I was running one day with Anna and my foot started hurting and so I went to the doctor and said that I had shattered my sesamoid bone.

March 2010

I crushed my L5 lumbar vertebra. This actually happened on December 26th but I was still down in March. This happened while sledding up at Tibble Fork. Sometimes my subconscious says "Jammie don't sled down that hill on a piece of plastic" but I don't listen. Good news though my back heeled very nicely and I have no reoccurring conditions :).

March 2011

That brings us to this year! Last night I went to get Chris from work and as I was leaving Kneaders I stepped off the curb and broke the base of the 5th metatarsal bone on my left foot. This was a very unpleasant experience and it is black and blue today! I'm feeling pretty stupid right now. The doctor said that he was probably going to put me in a hard cast on Monday.


Next March Chris said that he was going to wrap me in bubble wrap and not let me leave the house. This is probably the best idea I have heard in a long time. After all, I am tired of broken bone March.

I'm so sorry dear!! That's the worst! I hope it heals quickly, and you should definitely go for a PURPLE cast, or pink. I too hope March is better to you in the future.
