Friday, June 14, 2024, MN

 Today is the 68th anniversary of the accident when I was hit by a Gardner Bakery truck and broke my leg while walking my friend home from playing at my house.  What a summer! A month and a half in traction in the hospital and a long time in a full leg cast but my leg works perfectly because they fixed it right. I do have issues with joint and muscle pain, possibly related, but I am good.

I was on the road, heading back home by 6:30 this morning and I pulled into the parking lot at my apartment a few minutes after noon.  Joey was one excited dog and I was just as happy to see him as he was to see me.  I wanted nothing more than to unpack and take a nap - and that is exactly what I did to recover from a fun week of activity and family and friend connections.  I’m certainly not used to days that start at 6am and end at 10pm, but I enjoyed every minute. I’m happy to be back home.
