a visit to the E.R.


spent a bit of sunday afternoon in the emergency room.
i fell going down stairs.  the plate and bowl that i was carrying landed
on the floor first and my left hand came down on broken stoneware bowl pieces.
got some pretty new stitches, a digital x-ray, and a tetanus/whooping cough shot.
i’m thankful that i didn’t break my neck.
i found out that i’m fairly good at flying, but my landing pretty much sucks.

  1. I did this in the dark of night last November while carrying the cat and a bowl of meow mix. I don't land so well either, but fortunately, no stitches.Praying for a speedy recovery!

  2. Oh, Nance. My heart went flying with you reading this. Glad you are okay. Well, now we have matching stitches. Was just chatting with the massage therapist yesterday about those. She says olive oil and slow stretching now that the stitches are healed. (I found one of those stress balls help, too.) I gave her everything, a two week headache and a hip that went out just getting in to see her. I think it was the mud trying to suck my boots off. I'm falling apart limb by limb.Am glad you did not land on your head. Lovely hand by the way. OOXXOO
