    What a fall

    Today started out like any regular day. Headed into the garage to get a car seat so I could pick up two of my granddaughters so that their mom could go to a meeting. That's when it happened - I tripped on a crack in the driveway and went flying but the flight ended in a very bad landing. Somehow landed on my face (broke my glasses, bruised my cheekbone an put my front tooth through my upper lip), hit my already bad knee, ripped up my hand, hit my hip and injured my shoulder. Wow am I sore! Trying to seek medical help is ridiculous here! Our emergency room is awful and urgent care is worse. My vet hobby fixed up my lip and I can't see an ortho doc about until next Tuesday! I'm telling you, dogs get better service!!! Guess it could've been worse and I'm grateful I didn't break anything. I've been good at spectacular falls but this was a doozie! But - I'm having a relaxing day high on ibuprofen! The other up side is that I might lose a few pounds as I can only consume liquids through a straw on the right side of my mouth!! Watch for a skinnier profile picture

      That made my fall injuries start hurting all over again!!! You probably should go sit and wait at the ER or urgent care to verify nothing is broken. I fell several years ago and walked around with a broken arm for a day and a half! I hope you recovery quickly, and don't forget, ice is your friend!

        What a terrible story! I am so sorry to hear it. I hope you get pampered for the next few weeks!

          Brenda, how awful! Cold packs for pain and swelling for now, but I agree with Bubba, you should make an appointment and be checked out at the doctor. You can always cancel if you start recovering quickly. Story like Bubba's - I walked on a broken foot until it was too late to correct without surgery. Ten years later it still hurts at time and I can't wear high heels without considerable pain. Learn from my stubbornness!

              Ouchie!!! I can understand about not wanting to go to the ER. I am thankful that you have your Vet sweetie who can fix you up - hope he is willing to pamper you for a while. Get well soon.

                Ouch! When I fell I insisted on getting in. Sure enough I broke my wrist. How can they let people walk about with a broken bone!

                I hope you can relax and feel better!

                    Oh my - that sounds like too many hurts to have at one time. I hope you do get checked out and that you heal quickly.

                      Oh my goodness you poor thing! Sounds like you are hurting all over. Hope someone is there to pamper you until you are feeling better. Amazing how much damage an itty bitty crack can do!

                        Oh, Brenda, I'm so sorry for your fall! When you do something, you do it up right, don't you? Be sure to take good care of yourself and do go to the ER or urgent care if you need to - it's awful waiting but not so bad as having a serious injury left untreated. Yes, be sure to use ice. Hope you're feeling better soon!

                          Oh, that hurt just reading it! I hope your ibuprfen works tomottow, cause you might feel it more in the morning! Rest, and rest, and let somebody wait on you for a few days.

                            Ouch. That is one of my biggest fears. I am pretty sure though, that I would be going to the ER...that is a lot of damage to not have it looked at. Sip your soup, use your ice packs, keep up with the ibuprofen, and let DH pamper you all you can stand.
