Show set up and an injury

My poor hubby always willing to work hard and never complain...Sunday he was out checking on the garden and heard a pop. He came limping in and did not say a word to me. He was slightly gimping around and I did not think anything of it because I was so focused on my spring show. I thought he was feeling his age after he just tore up our entrance and  hallway floor to put down new tile. (We have talked about this for 6 years now.)
Finally I notice him limping and could hear the snap, crackle and pop every time he walked. He was not doing to well. The kids and I hauled all the grid and show stuff up the stairs and he directed packing it in to the van. Some how between the two of us we did get our 8x8 space set up in almost record time (2 hours 30 mins).  Good thing I am lifting 8 lb. weights at Jazz every morning!
We added some shelves with hooks and knobs he finally got a chance to make and some stacking boxes that were hits when we lived in Vegas.   Hope they sell here!
I will be working the show tomorrow and then take down is Saturday night.  Hopefully hubby will be feeling better but I think I see surgery in his horizon.
Hope not because he never sits still....sitting with him in a movie is like sitting by the most wiggly toddler ever only worse! A reason we (the kids and I) never take him to the movies!! 
Love you honey!!
