Just got back from taking my husband to the ER. One of the dogs accidentally hit my husband on the right shoulder and we heard a crack. This is the shoulder with the mel in it (of course). I rushed him to the ER hoping it was just dislocated. No such luck. His humerus bone is shattered. But it is the weekend, so they just immobilized it and sent him home with pain meds. Need to see an orthopedic surgeon ASAP (on Monday hopefully). We were due to go to UCLA this week for another MRI and SRS for his brain. Don't know if we will have to postpone this. He is in a lot of pain and very grouchy. I just want to lock myself in the closet and have a small meltdown. When we think things can't get worse, they do! I know, just take a deep breath and one day at a time. But it feels very lonely here. Happy thoughts are needed!!!!
