Hubby came home today, but is in terrible pain.  He's on Perocet.  He goes back Wed. for surgery.  He will need to stay 2-3 days in the hospital, which he is soooooooooooo excited about - NOT!  He's not a good patient.  They did a CT on it today and found that it's even worse than the X-ray showed.  I don't know if he will have an artificial heal or not.  The doctor didn't say.  He did say there is a possibility of needing a bone graft.  I'm not sure if that is for the heal or the joint that affected. 
 
He feels so guilty about this - not being able to take care of me.  It's just a good thing this didn't happen a couple of weeks ago.  At least now I'm feeling pretty much back to normal. 
 
He spoke to the HR person at the new job and he said he could hold the job for a while, but no guarantee after the new year.  The doc said he can't work for 6 weeks.  I don't know what he'll do if he loses this job! 
 
I remain the optimistic one - searching for the silver lining in this one.  Haven't found it yet, but I know it's there somewhere. 
 
Thanks for all your concern.  It's truly appreciated.
 
Love and hugs,
Kathy

I am a believer in "things work out for the best" on job related issues. I can't quite take that to the breast cancer level...nothing is best about breast cancer or broken heels for that matter. But several times in our life we have had to make changes in job situations that seemed quite dire at the time, but you know, they did always work out for the best in every circumstance, each change lead in a better direction. Is your husband still employed at the old job?

His heel situation sounds so painful and frightening. He was being a good Samaritan by helping the neighbor with the tree??? And this happened. I am sure glad he was not being a nasty neighbor. LOL.

Hope you are feeling better and better each day. Hugs, MK

No, he wasn't being a good neighbor.  He hates trees and this thing hangs over our wall.  It sheds leaves and drops a black sooty residue on our lemon tree.  I hate it too, but wouldn't be up on a roof trimming it.  It's also in all the wires that lead to the house. 
 
No, he's not employed by the old company.  This was to be his last week there.  I know things happen for a reason, but he doesn't buy it.  I have to be the positive one for both of us.  We'll get through this thing.  I'm strong enough for both of us.
