Bad week for falls

Thursday, December 26, 2013

This has a been a very bad week for Martha and I this week. I fell once on the treadmill and Martha has fallen 3 times, twice on ice and once on the ramp last night. Neither one of us was hurt all that bad. Hopefully we won't have another week like this .

    That's not good AT all!! As we get older, falling is very dangerous. I am glad you weren't hurt and I hope that you both can find ways not to fall. Can your wife wear heavy boots or something similar until she gets to work? Thinking of you both. emoticon emoticon

    Wow - I am so sorry - its dangerous out there on the ice and snow - I finally insisted that the city come out here and salt the street in front of the house as I live on a curve and many people drive way to fast - I have this fear that a car will be in my house. I have fallen on the treadmill myself and understand the embarrassment to me you have absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about that fact that you are on the treadmill and keep going back is a huge motivator to me !! Karen Wishes to you and Martha for a Happy New Year !

    Stay off the ice and slow down on the treadmill! That is my unsolicited advice, but hope you stay well now! Wouldn't it be easy if it was that simple!

    I can't wait until we're back in Florida on Thursday so we are away from this ice.

    Be very careful - falls are not good, My mom broke her leg Christmas Eve night when she fell (4 1/2 hrs of surgery on Christmas Day to repair and put in a steel plate). Needless to say, it affected more than just her.

    Falls can be painful - hope they are over for now. Take care both of you.

    Oh my, sorry your wife has had multiple falls. Bumps like that are no fun whatsoever. Winter is hard on us. I have rubber ice treads with metal cleats that help a little but not perfect. I wear them when I go out in the winter as my shoes do not have treads on them. Don't buy the cheap brand of ice treads, they break!
