Karen's broken leg+

Yes, Karen's leg may be broken, but apparently nothing breaks her spirit!
Small update: I had a very brief 58-1/2 minute chat with Karen Friday. Despite the cast from right foot to just below her knee, despite the absolute prohibition to touch the floor at all with her right foot (lest the forbidden weight-bearing interfere with the healing of the ankle-related injury), despite feeling less than 100% graceful as she learns to perambulate to the therapy gym by alternately hopping and moving her walker forward, despite being in a rehab facility--she's in fantastic spirit! She made jokes, she laughed at jokes, she described her new routine (which includes using a long-handled grabber to put a sock on), and she (proudly) caught me up on Tommy's and Peter's situations. (Both are, of course, doing very well.) If I hadn't known what had happened or where she is, I wouldn't have known what had happened or where she is!
...which is, by the way: Shrewsbury Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 40 Julio Drive, Shrewsbury, MA 01545...and it does appear she'll be there at least a while longer. She has no email access there so she likely won't see your messages until she's home, but she does have her cell phone, so if you have a few minutes (not necessarily 58-1/2) and want to say hi and be impressed by her attitude, give her a call. You'll be amazed!
