I have fallen 3 times. First time getting out of bed in the middle of the night my feet got mixed up and I went down softly on the carpet. No big deal. The next time going up my mom's steps while also drinking water and my legs forgot how to do two things at once. I learned while going up or down stairs, don't multitask. Friday night I was running away from my grandson when we were playing and I decided I would run faster than usual and not let him catch me for once, he is 7 and pretty speedy. My right toe on my shoe just caught somehow on the hardwood floor and I went sprawling face-first. Took most of the brunt on my elbow which is broken and my mouth which would be in pretty bad shape except it landed on my hand. My hand got cut and my face bruised and one chip in my tooth but that could have been so much worse if my hand hadn't been under my mouth. My son took me to the ER and got x-rays and all that business and now I have a temporary cast on my arm until I can get to the orthopedist this week. really hoping I don't have to do surgery and put a screw in there. I guess I have to change my ways. My grandson and I get pretty rowdy. He is an only child so when I go over I'm the playmate. I will have to be the more sedate boring playmate from now on. Just wanted to let you all know the latest on the exciting PD front. I'm sure a lot of us have falling stories. This is going to cramp my style as far as my new exercise program. And everything else come to think of it. I am learning how to do things one handed and fortunately have a big helpful loving family although I do live alone. Except for the cat who seems to always be under my feet so I have to be super careful.
