Well, instead of going back to work this afternoon I took my wife to Urgent Care.
I left work, picked up lunch for the two of us, and brought it home. The guy who does the sprinklers came round (we've been having problems) and in the course of discussing things, she walked across two concrete pads. She caught her foot and fell.
Her nose was bleeding, her lips were bleeding, and she couldn't feel her fingers on the right hand. I called 911.
Turns out that there was nothing broken (except an old crown in her mouth). Her right hand was xrayed, and it's okay -- soft tissue trauma, and we've got ice on it. Her glasses were scraped on the concrete, which did the lenses no good, but the optical shop is going to take care of that.
Right now, she's shaken and holding icepacks in her right hand to her lip.
She looks like I beat her, but as she said, if I had I wouldn't have been able to drive her to the Urgent Care center since corpses can't driver, even in Idaho.
She's also saying how lucky she was. No fractures, and people there to take call for help.
It was a lousy afternoon. I'd rather have gone to work.
