Move away from me Black Cloud, enough bad news


Sunday, July 06, 2014

Nobody can probably understand how frustrated and helpless I feel right now. I spent 9 hrs. at the hospital yesterday. I was going to go for a walk before the hurricane/storm came. I got across the street, spoke with a neighbor for a couple minutes, then I maybe took 4 steps and I went down flat on my face.

I split my lip, my right ankle is broken and has a temporary cast and luckily the right knee which is hugely black and blue and swollen causing me to think I had dislocated it, is ok. Surprisingly not as painful as it might all sound, but then again maybe the drugs are working.

So much for rebuilding my strength and walking the summer... Can't swim, or go to the beach or even get a shower/bath.... Still gotta go get a real cast on Weds. Luckily too, with my experience of 2months ago, I won't be getting crutches, too scarey, but I do have my steno chair with wheels and that works amazingly well.

Two male neighbors saw me and helped me back to my house, and I called my friend next door and she came and sat with me. Then after catching up on funeral details etc from my mother, I went to stand up and saw how swollen everything was and how much it all hurt, so I did realize it was my fright foot and probably wouldn't be able to drive home, My neighbor came back and took me and stayed with me the full 9 hours..... I called another friend round 6pm and she brought me supper, sandwiches and yogurt and tea.... Thank goodness for friends.

    That is too bad. Falls and broken bones after mum passing. Seems like a lot. Prayers for you that your angels help you out. Heal fast.

    I am sending you lots of healing vibes. The summer I broke my left ankle (2012) was very aggravating as I could not go for long walks or use my exercise games on the Wii.

    I am so sorry. I truly am.

Is it the same ankle as before? I guess the summer is a bust for both of us this year

Hope you had a clean break and that it heals fast for you
