Since early November I was sleeping in the spare room so DH could rest while he was ill. 3 nights ago we went back to sharing our bed. It sure was much warmer.
In the middle of the night I got out of bed and as I navigated in the dark for the door I managed to WHACK!! my left knee against the corner of the Cedar chest. It hit right at the side of the leg just above the knee. I got to the bathroom, no skin was broken and so I iced it for a few minutes, then feeling so cold I went back to bed.
Oh Boy, that sure did hurt!.
Next morning no bruise just a hard lump. It did not really turn purple just yellow and it was very hard.
Last night I did a repeat performance. The same cedar chest consequently exactly the same spot and it brought tears to my eyes. I iced it again and went back to bed.
Today there is a huge bruise and a big lump. It hurts and it looks bad and I worry about a clot. I had one once it hung around a long time, so I will be watching it.
Tonight I will retrieve the small flashlight I had left under my pillow in the spare room so if I got out of bed I could find the door in the dark.
It never occurred to me to take that flashlight back I thought I would just do as I always did, go right to the door, it did not happen that way!
Flashlight is under my pillow and I sure hope it will not happen again. We do have a night light in the big bedroom but my eyes just do not adapt as fast these days. I must be more careful tonight I cannot afford to have a second repeat performance.
No exercise has been done tonight I did do a couple of seated videos tonight but the leg hurts like the Dickens so I am off to bed with a pillow under that knee, hopefully it will be better by tomorrow.
GOODNIGHT Spark Friends! Take better care than I am doing right now.
Hope fully no more OUCHIES !! in the night.
