How to get out of Jury Duty - NOT !!!

This is the Happy Hubby bringing you Robin's blog for today. Robin went off to Jury Duty Wednesday and was in the second group waiting to be called in for a Supreme Court case.  As they broke for lunch and headed to the elevator Robin's shoe stuck on the marble flooring and she crashed down onto her left knee.  A quick call from Robin as she was being whisked away in an ambulance to the Emergency Room and I high tailed there ASAP.

Bad News - It took over 3 hours before Robin got an X-Ray and was really examined by an MD.

Good News - Nothing was broken. Robin has a severely bruised and swollen left knee and shin. She continues to be in quite a bit of pain and can put only the smallest amount of weight on the leg. The Doc said it could be a few weeks before she may be able to move pain free but even then, mobility of the knee may be effected. Also her right hand is bruised and swollen.

Next stop: Orthopedic Surgeon for a consult, when the swelling has gone down.

Robin's blogs may be a little spotty over the next few days as she is recovering, but I am sure that as soon as she can sit at or hold her laptop she will be back.

Oh stars. I am so sorry to hear about this. Being someone who has had several good "bad" falls and one knee replacement I can empathize with the pain and also the waiting. Give Robin my very best and I'll light a candle for healing.
Very nice of you to let us know about your sweet wife. Thank you.

OH NO! Well pass my well wishes along to her along with everyone elses. We will all be here when she is well again, and tell her to be less drastic next time when attempting to avoid a long and boring trial ; )
