My BIG OOOOPS for the day

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Coming out of the TOPS meeting, my shoe caught on the ramp rug so down I went face first. Luckily I had a lot of the paper goods in front of me that broke my fall so I didn't get hurt...just banged up my arm and knees. Right now I can't even see the scrapes but a bruise is forming on my right shin. I am glad that I was the one who fell and not one of the older ladies who had left just before me since they both have a lot of health problems. One lady fell and broke her hip about 2 years ago. They both are in their mid to upper 80s and they sure don't need a fall. I am resilient and rebounding well. I imagine tomorrow will be a rough day for me. So far, i haven't needed to go to the ER since nothing is broken. I will reevaluate tomorrow or if I get worse, i will call one of my daughters to take me.

On the plus note---I got the reports from my lab work yesterday-all within good range except hemoglobin which is still low. Dr. has requested an iron test since there hasn't been any improvement from December...still at 10.4 (normal is 12-14).

This is my saga for today.......hehehe

    What a good hearted soul you are.

    Had it been me ( and it has been me many many times, as I am very accident prone and have broken 3 toes since 2009 ) I would be using the most unladylike language and being very upset over having to deal with a few weeks of pain and bruising.

    Another broken bone it seems in my angel wings !
