Some of you know who came to my plow days, but my bro-in-law, Fred (member Meangreen) had an accident Saturday morning getting set for plow day. Just simply slipped on the dew wet dovetail of his Dad's trailer, slipped & fell. When he put out his hand to catch himself, it broke both bones in his arm, just behind his wrist. He had told me severe fracture after he returned from the hospital, but turned out was actually a major break and he was playing it down. When he fell, his hand was 90 degrees of his forearm! He pulled it straight & went to his couch & yelled for Denise, his wife. By the time she walked in there his wrist area was swelled way up & he was sick in his stomach. Trip to hospital where they stabilized it & sent him home, with surgery set for today around noon. All went well. He has 1 plate & 10 screws now, so he's a walking hardware store. 6 to 8 weeks off work.
Moral of the story is, always be careful, as even very simple things can get the best of you. We've all fell, but most aren't so unfortunate to break bones, but it can happen any time.
