Rut roh…

Dick has an owie.  He has had a pain in his L calf off and on.  When he walked in the door with an incredible limp and I discovered  that this has been going on for a WEEK, well…off to the doc he went yesterday.  Note to self:  don’t ever let MM go to the doctor alone again.

He has a torn muscle behind his knee.  On the ‘good’ knee.  Sigh.  Heat and elevate and stay off it for awhile.  Yeah, right.  This morning he said that he probably wouldn’t be a good patient.  Ya think???  Help me, Ronda!

So he is all propped up in bed…with his computer…and the remote control…having his own forced vacation.   With room service.

Any bets on how long he stays beached and behaves?

I would not take bets on that...but the hurting may make him comply with the doc's advice, for a while! Then again, once it stops raining, he may decide he's had enough bed rest!

I don't know Dick very well, but I know enough to know he'll do what he wants to do in pretty short order. He knows what's best for him. The doctor doesn't.

Good luck honey. Big healing hugs to you both. :)

hmmm.. Room Service sounds nice... cruise-like! Are there any Chilled Soups on the menu?

I will bet more than 24 hours but less than 48! Find him something to fix in bed! That may distract him for a while.

Rotsa ruck, honey! Big hugs xo

oooohhhh...maybe you could do a pool (like a football pool) and we could buy squares for how many hours he stays put. Better than Vegas, Baby!
