 Last Wednesday I was crossing the parking lot, going into church, when I tripped and fell. Mortification beyond belief. Off I went to hospital in an ambulance. This being LSU territory, the EMT told me that the highlight of his day was cutting off my Alabama shirt. And being on church property, I bit my tongue and told him to kiss my grits.

I fractured my shoulder! I'm off the organ bench for 8-12 weeks and hopefully won't need surgery: repair and/or rotator cuff. There is no cast-can't cast the shoulder-but a pretty blue sling and a ton of pillows on the bed to prop me up.

So today is my down day. Spent most of the afternoon in bed reading or sleeping. Luckily I can still stitch, but today wasn't a stitchy day. My bottom lip was touching my knee.

John and his family came over from Houston this weekend-checking on mom, I think. We went out to LSU Saturday morning-probably not the smartest thing for me to do. Then we came back to the house and watched football. I was so tuckered out that I slept through the first half of the Alabama game. Made it through the LSU-Auburn game, though.

Made some cools snaps. Here they are:

Breakfast on Saturday morning. John, David and Laura. David did the cooking and cleaning this weekend.

The kids have two dogs: Marley and Libby. They stay in a large crate when they visit us because Linzie isn't too social. Ann got in the crate Saturday and fell asleep against Marley.

Bradley, Ann and Grace at LSU, visiting Mike the Tiger. This is the iron one. The real one was sleeping in the shade.

We are a divided family. John graduated from LSU and Michael from Alabama. Here's Michael and Meghan and Michael is espressing his feelings for LSU. Yes, they are there!

Linzie kept her cool during the LSU game!

So that's life here right now. I've decided to get up in the morning with a whole new outlook. I'm glad-that of all things that could have happened-this was the easiest. If my head had hit the concrete I might have shattered the concrete!!

So sorry to hear about your fall but thankful that it wasn't more serious. Take the time to get the rest you need and send that make sure you replace that Alabama TShirt! :)

Oh my goodness, Marian...I hate that you broke anything at all, but so glad it wasn't worse. And how dare they ruin a perfectly wonderful t-shirt :o). Get better soon my friends!
