A bit out of commission this weekend

Hi my lovely readers, how are you each this weekend? I’m afraid that things are a little rocky here at the moment. My husband injured his left foot on Thursday evening and we spent most of Friday waiting to see at doctor at the ER. Thankfully it’s nothing immensely serious (a broken toe), but still the poor dear has certainly had better days.

{In a scene reminiscent of our trip to the hospital on Friday, a nurse examines a patient's foot in this Life magazine photo from 1959.}

One of my medical conditions is quite aggravated at the moment as well, so I’m afraid that there won’t be an edition of the Pretty Link Roundup this weekend. I’ll post an even larger number of links when I put together the next one to help make up for it. Likewise, I’m afraid I may be a little behind on posts in general and replying to wonderful comments (and visiting your stellar blogs) for a few days.

I’m not sure yet if there’s be a Monday Muses this week either, but regardless I will post an update on how we’ll both doing in a day or two. Thank you very much everyone for your comments on my posts this week, I really love knowing how much you sweet dears enjoyed the Five For Friday post.

I truly hope that you’re all doing well, I miss you each and hope to be back in the loop really soon!

Big hugs & joyful weekend wishes to everyone!

  26. Oh Krabby Patty! I hope you both are feeling on the mend quickly, my sweet friend! Broken toes are just rotten. Looking forward to your return and sending you lots of get well wishes! {{hugs}}

  27. Hi everyone, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your incredibly sweet, caring comments. I've been sharing them with my husband as you've come in and must tell you how much they have truly touched both of us and helped to lift our spirits. Hubs is doing a little better (the swelling is going down and the bruised areas are turning from black to purple), which is great! I'm in pretty rough shape at the moment, but am working on a new post and will just post (others) throughout the next little while when I feel well enough to.

    @ The Vintage Kitten, I'm sorry to hear that your husband broke his toe as well. I really hope that he made a full recovery and is feeling well now. Our rambunctious cat wasn't the culprit in this injury time, it was one of the legs on our dining room table.

    @ Lizzy, very true, the ER is one of those places that I try to avoid like the plague (no medical pun intended ;D), but sometimes it's simply unavoidable.

    @ Tracy, you're right, surprisingly, when it's a closed fracture, we learned that there isn't too much they can do other than to tape it (in some cases) and tell you to stay off of that foot as much as possible for a few weeks (lol, which isn't an easy feat when you don't have a car). I was thrilled to find that photo, I'd just been searching for a vintage nurse and almost did a double take when I found one of a nurse examining a patient's foot, that's what I call good photo luck :)

    Truly, truly thank you, everyone, you are amazing friends, and I feel so blessed to know each of you.

    Massive love & hugs,
    ♥ Jessica & Mr. Jessica (as the wonderful MissMatilda nicknamed him)

  28. Feel Better Soon! Tip: vintage photos of nurses are a great distraction . . . xx

  29. Thank you sweetly, Christa honey. Indeed they're eye candy for hubby and vintage uniform inspiration for moi! :D

    Tons of hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
