Feeling sad

Don't want anyone to think I've been ignoring your post. Over a week ago we had rain and snow. The next morning all was fine and I walked onto my deck, to take my dog out and the deck was a sheet of ice. I started to fall so I grabbed the deck railing, which was covered in ice and fell against it. I was in pain but waited for 5 days until I could hardly move before I want to the doctor. I have two cracked ribs, now I know why I couldn't hardly move my right side. I'm told I can not lift anything for the next 4-6 weeks. Painful to even lift my 8 1/2lb dog to put him in bed with me. My depression is getting the best of my cause in 3 weeks I'll be seeing my grandkids and probably won't be about to pick them up. I'm going to think positive cause I miss them so much. Only get to see them twice a year. Praying I will be healed by then.

I am so terribly sorry about your fall. The pain must be horrible every time you breathe. I wish you a full recovery and hope that you are healed enough to enjoy your visit with your grandchildren. If you still cannot pick them up by that time, nothing says love like a warm big hug from grandma. :) xx

Sounds like you’re having a pretty tough time right now. You will get better soon and recover sending lots of love. Praying for you also. I would recommend taking vitamin D if you don’t get outside much!

Sorry about your fall. Falling on ice with your body absorbing the shock, then recovering from cracked ribs must be horrible. I wish you well on your recovery , and your visit with your family.

Thank you so much. I'm more of someone who can help others. Hard for me to ask for help and prayers.
