Vicki Bonks Her Head

Boy, did she. We went for a wet hike in the woods along Coal Creek yesterday and, crossing a rain-slicked log bridge, Vicki went ass-over-teakettle into the creek, landing first on her head and then summersaulting over like Gabby Douglas in the all-around finals. After I leapt into action sketching the scene for you, we went to Urgent Care, where they confirmed that she had no concussion and was going to be okay, after feeling like hell for awhile. She's feeling better today than she thought she would, but can't turn her head and won't be driving soon. She also has found that tylenol with codeine and muscle relaxers can really make the day go by. Great time for me to leave on a trip, eh? I mean, who's gonna draw her? But Bennie is a good nurse and helps her nap. Send Vicki some love, please.


That's an ice bag Vicki's applying to her forehead, not a funny hat.

  2. Oh, no! I hope Vicki feels better VERY soon. Maybe even a cool scar to show for her troubles? Bennie IS doing an awesome job.

  3. Yikes! We'll have to check up on her while you are off with Ozzie in NYC. Be careful out there, people.

  4. Whoa Vicki! Watch them there wet wooden walk ways west of Issaquah. (It's drier east of Issaquah)
    Hope it wasn't much worse then a few stitches. (I'm sure Dana was in stitches watching the spill)
    Feel better and heal quickly.

    Oh, Vicki! OUCH! Apply a warm dog and put your feet up for awhile.
