A Bad Wheel

Posted by on June 19, 2009

robinraking Robin’s on the injured reserve list this week. Some three  odd weeks ago she hyperextended her knee while carrying a case of soda from the basement of the pro shop up to the snack area.  She attempted to treat this on here own for awhile but all for naught.  The discomfort and pain was bearing heavily on her mental state. Despite my urging, a visit to a doctor was a pipedream. I surmise most nurses are like this, not practicing what they preach. Balm and a tens unit also proved futile in an effort to heal it.  I finally convinced her to go to the clinic in Dickinson.  The seventy mile round trip was not something she relished  and I knew here despair over a solo.  She had to make the trip alone as I had to work,  The walk-in clinic no longer took walk-ins so they sent her to the local hospital.  A severe sprain was the prognosis, although a hairline crack in the tibia showed on the x-rays.  Apparently that was an old injury that went unsuspected. A brace, aleve, and rest are the watchwords for the next week.  However, her going away gift from the hospital in Dickinson was a brand new, shiny pair of crutches.  With no work for the remainder of the week, huddling in the RV all day long without human conversation makes her wanting for some highlights. Rest is not a friend of the excited mind.  So we  traversed through the Park in search of her endeared friends–the prarie dogs. I knew these guys would bring a cockleshell to her heart. So, as she did, enjoy the slideshow.

    How’s it going? Happy New Years! I am starting an expat blog about making a living while traveling abroad. I will be working as a “professional” blogger and freelance writer, and probably teach a little English as well. I have tried this twice, and failed (but have learned a lot), this time I will succeed! It will be called “A Broad Abroad” and it will be fun!
