Just to show
you that year isn't over until the ball drops, you can see from the picture
that we had another setback before the end of 2005. Denni & Jim went to Yosemite for a few days
after Christmas and had a great time in a magnificent National Park. Then
we went ice skating.
been a few years (10+) since we've been on the ice, so we were a bit shaky
as we started. Denni made it to the far side of the rink, one-half lap, and
took a spill. She landed on her outstretched left arm and fractured her
wrist and her pride.
The emergency staff at Yosemite took good care of her,
but she underwent surgery when we returned home.
The doctor inserted a permanent titanium
plate underneath her wrist so that it would heal correctly and avoid
complications later in life. Now she's a card-carrying member
of the metal-in-the-body club.
While 2005 wasn't such a bad year, we're looking forward to a better 2006.
