    TIMETRAVELER2  an active member of the HP community, recently had a bad fall and broke some bones. She will need months of therapy and could certainly use our prayers.   She asks that no one write or contact her directly, because she cannot respond as she has a broken wrist.  She hopes to return to HP when her injuries have healed.   Thank you for your concern and prayers..

      TimeTraveller II get well soon! It wouldn't be the same without you around here. I wish for you a quick and pain-less recovery (as much as possible) and I do look forward to the day when you can return to HP! It's always sad to hear of a major mishap like this that suddenly takes someone out of their normal life, but doubly sad when it's someone you "know" and respect. May your keyboard gather little dust due to a fast recovery, however you can keep writing by dictating into a recorder, to type up later when you feel better or when you can bribe someone to type it in for you. Perhaps outline some articles on a recorder (many computers record nowdays, if you are able to access your computer at all). I know one program, the spendy Dragon Naturally Speaking, even translates your spoken words into editable text. (I found its learning curve to be steep and got frustrated with it, but perhaps you'll have better luck--most people I know SWEAR by it for writing email and memos and such, and just brainstorming ideas for stuff to write about.)

      Get well soon! I'm sorry this happened to you!

    Get better as soon as you can, TIMETRAVELER2, at your own speed and lots of rest and pleasant things to see or read.

    With a broken ankle, I found that the swelling after surgery was the longest-lasting obstacle, but sticking my whole foot in ice helped a lot. AND, I had one session of reflexology foot massage/pressure point therapy on that foot and ankle and the swelling was released - I could walk again!

    Sending prayers up and I'll be thinking of all those bones kitting themselves together quickly and swelling remaining minimal.

          My husband is one month into his forced rest period after breaking his ankle. Driving the rest of us crazy! lol. By the way, if you are having trouble with swelling, I wrote hubs about a gel that reduced his swelling quickly. Don't know how your swelling is going, but just letting you know in case you need it.

          Best wishes for a quick recovery.

      Again, a big thank you to all of you.  Unfortunately, I received the worst possible news today from my hip surgeon.  It seems what I thought was a small fracture is an elongated one that runs the entire length of my hip implant.   It is possible it may heal, but it is more likely that it will cause the implant to come loose which will mean a total hip revision. My doc wants my wrist to heal before he does anything and says that as long as the pain is minimal, we can wait.  This does not look good and we are talking an extended amount of time for all of it.  To say I am distressed does not even describe my feelings right now, but there are no real choices here.  Your prayers and some good fortune are my only chances to fix this problem.  Sorry to have to be writing this, but I wanted all of you to know what is going on because you have been so incredibly caring and kind.

        So sorry to hear about your travails.   I think most of us mistakenly assume healing broken bones is straightforward, until it happens to us or someone near us.

        I discovered differently when I put my hero in a car crash in my novel (yes I know, how mean). The story assumed his broken leg would heal fairly quickly but when I started researching, I found that wasn't the case at all.  It totally changed the trajectory of the novel and his path to recovery over twelve months became part of the plot - and I'll certainly never take a broken bone lightly again!

        I do hope the news improves.

          Hello everybody:  Here is another update.  The bones in my wrist, except for the one that is chipped and could not be operated on, have healed.  Of course the soft tissue still needs time, but I am able to do many things with my hand now that I could not do before.  The leg is status quo for now.  We just have to wait and see about it, and this will take months.  I am still mostly home bound, but am not bedridden.  I no longer need the platform walker for my arm, so getting around the house is easier.  One thing I know for sure is that I'm going to watch my step in the future!!  Thanks again for all of your kind support.

                    When I hear people talking about the demise of HP, and then I read all of your notes of support, I cannot help but feel that HP will rise from the ashes and thrive.  How could it do otherwise with such good people as yourselves.  Honestly, you have given me such hope!  I am certain this is the reason why I am healing so well.  God Bless all of you...and especially Theresa for starting this thread on my behalf.
