Our week ended with a little drama. I got a call on Friday around 2pm from my husband’s doctor. He informed me my husband, who played soccer in a recreational league at work over lunch, was in so much pain he could not be examined….I must come at once to pick him up and take him to the emergency room. After x-rays, he has broken his right humorous bone right at the top under the shoulder socket.
So the question I have to ask (yes probably rhetorical)…why do 40 year old males continue playing contact sports even though they know it takes at least twice as long to heal when they get hurt?? I ask this only since, it has been less than a month since my husband had recovered from a shoulder injury.
So Sean (my son) and I, are more or less left to our own devices this week, with the hubby incapacitated. I plan to keep our meal plan simple this week, here’s the plan.
