...bad enough to be injured & need crutches...but falling w/ the crutches! Yikes! Hope it's not worse?!

On a family note:
DD had her car in parking lot at community college. Someone crashed into car next to her and it trapped her car in corner. So very thankful that she was NOT inside. -- The bummer Wed. was that no note was left & no one saw it happen. No one to take care of damage to 2 cars: ours & a side vehicle that was smashed into ours.

Great news today! We received a call that the person turned herself in to Campus Security and owned that accident & has insurance. So very thankful that this can be resolved.
I'm learning to keep perspective! emoticon

Hey, hey, hey ... what is going on here. I was running to turn off the house alarm wearing only socks on my feet, slipped on the tile and fell hard on both knees. Two MRIs later, my doctor said I had a torn meniscus on one knee and a pulled lateral ligament on the other knee.

I had surgery on the meniscus and took therapy to strengthen both knees. I am happy to say I am working out again, but am mindful of my knees. My orthopedic surgeon said that household accidents is the major reason people come to his office. I really love him, but told him we had to stop meeting this way. emoticon emoticon emoticon

About a month ago, I slipped in a tiny bit of water and broke two toes keeping my balance.

It is always a shocker when you fall. I recently walked into the house and into,the kitchen and tripped over my foot, I fell forward and put out my arm and caught on the fridge, hit my head on the fridge and held up,the full glass of tea in the other hand and never spilled a dropped. ,I was thinking as I fell I was going to have a mess to clean up. Hubby sat down beside me as he thought he was going to have to take me to the emergency room and I kept telling him to take the tea and not spill it. I was sore for,the next couple of days and had an egg,on my head

Keep on track

Howdy! How goes it? I just got back from vacation last night & have been doing LOTS of laundry & cleaning. Didn't get too much sleep last night. Will have to get to bed early tonight!

I tripped & fell on Wed. so I managed to get an appt. early this AM with my wholistic chiropractor. Good thing I did. He said the body will adapt with an injury, but often not in the best way possible. So, getting everything adjusted helps me heal better and with less loss of movement. -- My left knee dug up some asphalt & I caught myself all down my right side (shoulder, knee, ankle & hyper-extended thumb...all trying to "stop" from falling all the way down)
