Who's a silly girl.....

Just to let you know where I am...
Early Wednesday morning I jumped out of bed with a bad leg cramp, my leg gave way and I ended up in a "Screaming heap" on the floor.
Long story short.... I have a compact fracture of the "L2" = "Broken back". No surgery is required but I am bed ridden (in hopsital) and in terrible pain. I should be allowed out of bed and to start moving in a few days, but will probably be in hospital for another week!!
I have been told by the doctor it will be 4 weeks until I am back to normal..... whatever "normal" is !!
I miss you all terribly and I shal look forward to seeing what you have all been up to and and can't wait to get back to work on the "Petite Maison".
David has relayed some e-mails onto me from: Mercedes; Christel and Rosanne and of course it is David and Kendall who are doing this post. XX

Oh, my, Linda. I pray for a very speedy recovery for you. Don't overdo when you are allowed to go home. Allow your back to rest and heal.

Thinking of you.

Hugs,

Oh Linda...that's bloody awful for you! There's nothing to compare with the pain you get with bsck injuries, especially when the sciatic nerve in your leg's involved. I know only too well what you're going through....I've been there & after 6 months of being bedridden & then hobbling slowly with a stick, my spine fused itself. Take care, DO as you're told & lie flat as much as possible. Mini hugs, Linda

Dear Linda, it's incredible how it has happened. Do not hurry, take care and rest a lot. I send you all my thoughts and hugs. I'm really looking forward to your next upright post.Love Rosanna

Karin Corbin said...

So sorry to hear of your injury. That is such a horrid accident. I am so glad the mending does not require any extreme measures such as surgery.

I guess it is now our duty to keep you very amused during your recovery.

Damn Linda, so very sorry to hear of your accident. Spinal injuries are almost the scariest and most painful injury you can sustain. You be good and do exactly what the doctors say. Best wishes and vibes going your way from the wife of someone with a spinal cord injury.

Claudia said...

Oh Linda, my goodness, I am shocked! I am so, so sorry about your injury! Please take care of yourself. You must take it slow. I am sending you my thoughts and prayers.

MiniLover said...

Linda, take it slow and easy. These injuries can be very painful, as you found out.

Petit Maison and all your admirers will be there when you get home.

Sophia

Norma said...

That's incredibly bad luck Linda, take care and REST UP! As Sophia rightly points out, Petit Maison and all of us will be here when you are recovered enough to feel like dabbling in your mini world again. Like most mum's you are probably used to being the care giver, not on the receiving end, but this is definately the time to lie back and let the TLC flow your way. All the best, Norma

cockerina said...

Hello Linda, I hope my message will reach you ..

This summer my husband fell off a ladder and fractured, but it would be better to say pulped the L2 ... was terrible for us because we were afraid that he is paralyzed! was in hospital for a month, it worked, now has a prosthesis in the spine, has suffered much the stillness, but if you can console is now well ..
is bringing a tutor to keep a straight back, but soon will be back to work!
courage, a little patience and you will come back as well and more than before!
I embrace you, Caterina

DollMum said...

Oh Linda, it sounds awful, and I hope they can offer you some pain relief. How frustrating to have enforced bedrest just from getting out of bed with leg cramp! I do hope you get better soon. Best wishes

Marit said...

Hi Linda, I'm so sorry to hear about your fall! Take good care of yourself, a broken back is quite an injury, and that from a simple fall! My husband had a similar injury 5 years ago, but we had a major car accident for causing that. So I know about that pain and I hope you soon will feel better, but take your time, you'll need it!

Good luck,
Marit

Dear Linda, I was shocked to learn that you are in hospital! Take heart! I have witnessed such pain when two of my friends had to go to hospital with similar back problems. They are doing well now! your friends will be waiting anxiously for your return. My very best to you. TerryX

miniacollection said...

I was so sorry to read about what happened to you. I hope it won't be too long before you are back to your usual self. You must be looking forward to getting home.

I always have leg cramps especially when the weather is so cold. I hope your leg is fine now.

Kate said...

Linda,

I'm a big fan of your blog. Your dollhouse is such a beauty. I think I've looked at every photo you've posted here at least three times!

I hope that this down time will be a time to rest and recover, and that you will be healed and refreshed in body and spirit.

mini hugs,
Kate in California

preciouslittle said...

Hi Linda, I am sorry to hear of your misfortune.. I went to an Oesteopath in Jan this year and the next day had no feeling in my left leg as she had ruptured my disc and the spinal fluid leaked.. I ended up having spinal surgery in June and was in terrible pain. I was home for 3 months and am just starting to return to normal. The reason I am telling you this is so you do everything the specialists tell you to do and look after yourself...we look forward to the continuation of the Petite Maison attic!! I will say a little prayer for you... Lorella

I had not seen this post before I write you, last Wednesday, dear Linda
I hope you are recovering without too much suffering ...:(
I also hope that you have received your mini-book (but now I understand better why I did not hear from you ...)
I am sad for you, but I hope you will soon return to France, and Paris to see you with pleasure (perhaps for the SIMP, it will be June 20, 2010)

I wish you the best and good morale especially ...
and thanks to David who relays ;)
I kiss you

Oooooo, Linda, I'm so sorry. I've jumped out of bed with leg cramps so many times ~ hurting your back is adding insult to injury. I hope you will recover quickly and that you will soon be pain free.
Probably your mind will be working overtime during your "down-time" thinking of more wonderful things for your gorgeous "Petite Maison".
Bon courage.
