Porch and Garden
The Quarry off the back yard
A beautiful setting. A friend and I rushed to paint his house, a wedding scheduled in just 3 days and then Murphy's law comes into play.
The groom, home alone and trying to get the house shaped up climbed just a few feet up a ladder to fix a broken eave , a bee came flying towards him. Highly allergic to bees, he backed away, lost his balance and fell from the ladder shattering his knee.
After crawling to a phone and calling an ambulance he was taken to a Boston Hospital where he has had 2 surgeries, pins inserted in his leg and all sorts of other crap that he and his fiance were not planning to do for this wedding to take place Saturday, just 3 days away.
He has vowed not to cancel a thing and while I believe he may be at the mercy of some of his doctors right now, I kinda think he will make it, in a wheelchair, but he'll be there.
I'm rooting for him !
The good news:
He's alive, which is far better than the alternative
He didn't get a head injury, but his fiance may still want to inflict that one.
