I landed on my bum, and looked down to see my right leg pointed in an odd direction.

I think the only thought I could have after that, was, “I’m not going to get out of this that easy.”

In other words, when your legs are supposed to be pointing east, but one of them is pointing north, there’s no shaking it off and heading for home.

That was the beginning of my broken leg adventure, which of course, still continues. I hope to be back on both feet again soon, but the body needs time to heal.
