Trust who?

Why is it that the people we love the most are sometimes the people we trust the least? Mom has to tell us we are pretty, right? But when your Emergency Department nurse wife tells you that you have broken your leg, you might want to believe her! Can anyone else see the obvious indent in the lower leg on the outside? Rob had all kinds of excuses for it and so even though I called up the charge nurse in the ER and got a bed for him- going through the ambulance door, so all the other people who were waiting wouldn't know, we waited at home, he took an old percocet we had lying around (and then got a urinalysis today- oops) and then went into sick call this morning. Confirmed and vindicated! It's broke alright! And luckily the sick call doc gave him a prescription for Percocet or he would have had some explaining to do on that urinalysis!!

How did rob do this? and how long in a cast? Yes, I can see that break and even Tim before he read that story said "that's a broken leg. Very nice looking legs too. Poor Rob. Mom

Shouldn't you throw out old medicine? It's nice to have someone on the "inside" to help with these painful experiences. Will a cast be a new experience? Some how I don't think so.

Is that above the ankle? Sheesh, how'd he do that?

AT first, I just thought he had a messed up ankle..
