The iceman falleth ...

and breaketh his wrist. I've been too busy soaking in the Front Range to discuss the future of the blog with my bosses (and having too much fun working and writing again to make this a priority). But, long story short, Denver is wonderful.

Except ...

I slipped on ice Friday night and broke my left wrist. I'll find out Tuesday whether surgery is in my future. The fall was painful. So was everything until I was splinted. Top ratings, though, to the folks at Highlands Ranch Urgent Care and the ER at Littleton Hospital. They took great care of me, sent me home relatively comfortable and with adequate pain drugs. Tuesday I see the orthopaedist again ...

The good news? He wants me to keep my left fingers active, so I'll be writing throughout my recovery. Whatever happens, I'll spend the next couple of months becoming a right-hander.
