It sure wasn't one I wanted to be on I can tell you that. I tripped on a vent in the floor of my room and while I tried to stop myself by grabbing the bed frame it sure didn't work and down I went. I think I bounced a few times before I finally reached a position on the floor. I was so shocked I just laid there for a while. Then started to test parts of my body to see if they still worked. Getting up when you have 2 total knee replacements is kind of hard. I just didn't know how to managed it. But finally I just dragged myself up by holding onto the bed frame that seemed to have failed me in attempt to not fall. I knew I hadn't broken anything but I was in plenty of pain in plenty of places. I took some Tylenol and  grabbed all the ice packs I had in the freezer, shut off the oven and took out the food and headed for the chair. I did go to the Dr. yesterday as I had an appointment anyway. He checked me over and said it can take a few days before all the sore spots show up. I'm so excited for that.

So on we move from here sore and limping around but things need to get done and no sitting around feeling sorry for myself.

I'm supposed to go to lunch today with friends but I honestly don't know if I am going to make it. It's really ugly out and has been raining on n off since last night.

I thought I was done shopping but found out I was missing some gifts. Maybe tomorrow I will finish that up. I figured another day of rest and ice packs and I should be good to go. I'll do some putting around the house so I don't get to stiff and it would be better to move a bit.

Have a Wonderful Day

    Seriously now, am glad to hear it is only bruises and that you will totally recover. No more Hurdle Jumping until after the Holiday.

  5. Hi Sandie,

    Thank you I think I'm on the mend a few places still sore. I guess the bone meds must be working even the Dr. was surprised nothing was broken. Happy Holiday to you and Jim!

    Hi Rick n Kathy,

    I think I understand that now and you can't fly through the air without the swing either.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours also.
