Well this song hits home especially today.Yesterday I was working as usual Picking up the branches of tree cuttings. I was hoping to feed them to a small fire. As chance would have it I slipped on the mud. We have cement walk way and then about a two foot muddy embankment raised by wood ties. I slipped right there and fell on my shoulder and arm and broke my wrist on the cement .I knew cause it cracked. The pain and shock that followed showed me how delicate I have become. My son heard the screams and came running then my husband. I tried to change a bit before we charged out to emergency. It took the rest of the day to fix me at the Surrey Memorial, which I have to admit was a very hard working group of dedicated men and women.
They did things different than before .After xrays showed I did darn good job on my wrist they gave me an IV which I guess put me into a light sleep.My husband and son said I was talking and screaming but when I came to I remembered nothing. Apparently I said something which made the doctors laugh. Who knows what I was talking about lol My boys both cringed watching me suffer. My blood pressure sky rocketed. The arm ached badly coming home. Now I have to go to the doctor every week to make sure it is setting right, bummer The morphine and other pills they gave me were strong and I needed them but right now it feels a lot better . Thank God .
Next to me was on old man who came in with a bad heart. He was dying and his son was sitting beside him waiting I guess since there was a no revival order for him.
The nurse said the day before they had 30 kids come in with boo boos and today me lol
The way I fell I was lucky not to have banged my head or broken my neck.
One split second and your world changes forever. I am always afraid of this hill of mine.Its not for older people especially when wet. It was just a question of time and the time came. lol After all this today my husband seems to have picked up a very bad sore throat from the hospital So he too is out of commission. When they asked me if I was ever at that hospital before, I told them no.I don't like doctors or hospitals. You come in with one problem and go home with 100 more lol
Well I better not push it and go rest before the wrist begins to act up AGAIN.
