    This morning at 5:30 a.m. Newton got up with a lot of pain. so I made him get into the truck and off we go back to the ER. This time I took him to the closest one around us. Well when we got there the Doctor that he was suppose to see at 1 p.m. was on call. They did lots of x-rays and a CT scan on his whole leg. They came back and said that he had a fractured (broken) Tebula (the main bone that runs down the leg). So at 9:30 a.m. the Doc took fluid off the knee. a pint. He can not stand on the leg at all. In 2 weeks he has to go back to the orthopedic. Then they will deside if surgery is needed or not. And his boss told him to come into work in the morning. They are gonna give him a setting job so he is not standing or bending. Thanks for all the prayers.

    Well, looks like the Ol' Angelkitty beat me to it. I see she has already informed all of you as to how i was doing.

    Tea - DISHES? WhAT'S THAT? lol:smile2:

    Jamie - thanks for the concern!:wink:

    Thanks to all of you for the prayers. I was worried how i was gonna make it on six weeks of no income! Prayers still needed as it will still be financially tight around here.:confused2:

    Newton, I hope you have learned not to anger her any more. No more of this "night fishing" stuff - but its your neck. Hope you can still get some fishing in...Don't let her get all of the fun. Hope you heal well and in a hurry...Now Trish, you leave him alone... ya hear!!!

    Thanks guys! Doing alright. They have not drained any more fluids off the knee, but prescribe more pain pills if i need them. Patricia is handling it real well. She has taken care of me like a king. She makes sure i am all comfortable with everything i need right by my side. She does get irritated with me when i take a notion to get up on my own and help myself! I will be back at work Monday Morning. I was suppose to work a half a day saturday, but since the knee was swelled up, she made me stay at home! But, hopefully she heals up ok and everything is back to normal before you know it!
    Pastor E - thanks for the prayers. My leg is not in a cast. Since it is only fragured and not completly broken, they have me in a leg brace. It still gets hot in the heat, but i pull it off when i get home and put a ice pack on it.

    Well, brothers and sisters......not much to update here yet. Have a doctors appointment in the morning to find out how the leg and knee is and what will have to be done to repair it. About to go nuts in this darn house....ready to get out and do some fishing. Was wanting to meet up with Johnnie and do some bank fishing in Mena...but unable to make it, finances won't allow it. But about to get a notion to have the wife drive my tail too cook's landing where i can sit in the wheelchair and throw a line or two out!
