Thanks so much everyone for all the kind words, sympathy, and get well wishes. I’m not good at sitting still, so I’m having trouble with the enforced immobility, and the pain is certainly no fun, but I have no choice but to be patient and let nature slowly patch up my body. I’ve been gradually able to begin drawing again (fortunately I fell on my left side), and saw the orthopedic surgeon today, who cautiously gave me hope I might still be able to attend the NYCC, if my traveling party can carry things and help me get around. I should know for sure by next week.
I took a couple of snaps showing the lovely massive bruise that is forming–I briefly removed the sling to get a more complete picture, but won’t be doing that often! It was painful–though the initial swelling has gone down considerably.
Again, thanks to all of you for the good wishes…
