So most of you who follow the channel know that back in May I fell from the second floor of my barn build and broke my right leg below the knee in a few places. Basically I now have a lot of metal hardware in my leg holding my ankle together and will not be able to walk on this leg until almost September.
This is one of those things that to a very active guy is a very hard thing to handle. Every day I sit in my recliner or bed with the leg elevated looking out the windows watching the haying being done on our family farm without me. I look out and see my two plus year timber framing project still not closed in and subject to the elements wondering if it’ll ever be done.
It would be very easy to get down with those thoughts and I can tell you that I have had my moments. If you are in the same position that I am you know what I mean. I think back to the day I fell and realize that I could have just as easily been killed. Looking on the bright side is not always my strong suite but I need to make it happen on this deal.
I am lucky to have a great wife to keep me going. She has taken over the channel duties until I can get back and is doing a great job showing the farm and so forth. My children have also stepped up to take care of the minor stuff that I cannot get out to do right now, the two older ones are really helping out. Every day I get a little better, the pain subsides a little more and the beat goes on. The point of all of this is that if you are currently injured and in the same boat, try to stay positive and follow doctor orders.
