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.


WHAT COLOR CAST SHOULD I GET?


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.
