Jan 26- Doing like Paul Harvey

Now the rest of the story.....
As I strolled across the kitchen. The floor grate reached up grabbed the toe of my slipper and threw me against the freezer. I then slid down the freezer to the floor to check and see if my head would bounce...it did...sigh. I have a doozie of a black eye and my right shoulder and upper arm are one huge bruise , and very tender..surprise huh! But nothing broken and other than a small skin tear on a finger no open wounds..count me lucky!!
Today the blizzard blew in..of course it was the day to meet my new cardiologist. Sigh..gotta love it! I am so grateful to Zack ,,he drove me in and patiently waited for me while I took care of business ,not only at the doc but also at the grocery store.
We got good snow ..I am thankful for that. We sure needed it.
Now arm is throbbing so gonna call it good for today..
Ya'al have a good night and watch out for those vicious furnace grates..they are out to get ya!!
Nite ya'al ..have a good rest and Stay Safe!!

    Well, we're a pair, aren't we? Instead of getting up normally from the floor, I had to see if rolling backward would work. It didn't. Rolled right into the edge of a cabinet - hard! Bruised a back muscle good in the line where I struck. Next morning I must have moved wrong because a rib alongside that muscle slid out from it's place in my spine and started poking the sore muscle. That pain wouldn't let me stand up and hurt worse than delivering children. Chiropractor moved the rib back in place 2 days later (after the weekend of pain). Muscle is still sore and cramps up when the damaged nerves don't like the way I'm getting out a chair. Isn't getting older just so much fun?

    Hooray for Zach! Hope your bruises are all that you have and no internal damage. Feel better soon.

    I think we've ALL done something similar, although knowing we're not alone doesn't necessarily make it any less painful! Glad nothing is BROKEN, and hopefully your shoulder and eye will heal quickly. Take care of yourself!

    Sorry to hear about that fall, but really good to hear that Zach could chauffeur you to your appointment. I remember having a fall like that about 5 years ago. My toe caught on the edge of a plastic floor protector under that desk chair--about 6 weeks later I had surgery for a torn rotator cuff. If things don't "heal" and you still feel pain in the shoulder, be sure to get it checked out. Now my shoulder is nearly perfect. Sending healing vibes!!

    Oh Katie I am so sorry did Zack take that furnace grate and give it a few good lashes for misbehaving? Seriously I am glad Zack was there to take you to the doctor and you take it easy.

    What did the Dr say? Anything he going to do to help you out?


    You need a chance to just heal and be well my friend.
