Just another day without Grace

Just another day without Grace

Ha--not feeling so syrupy and dramatic today--fooled ya.

I shook the pity party hangover blues and learned a good lesson. . .when my 6 year old daughter said "Mommy why are you crying? And why are you sitting on the floor?" I thought "why the heck am I crying???" (I was on the floor for very legitimate reasons--I fell--over the dogs and into the basement door).

Basically I got a in-your-face reminder that grace can't give up there is just too much at stake. I'm a mom, pd isn't allowed to take that away.

So, it's family skate night at the roller rink--where's my levodopa? Hope the dj plays YMCA!

  • I know how you feel.

  • Absolutely

  • Presumably, the basement door was closed. If it had been open, might you have fallen onto the basement stairs, or down the basement stairs? According to the CDC: Among older adults (those 65 or older), falls are the leading cause of injury death. They are also the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma. At the risk of offending the dog lovers among us ...Dogs that trip you deserve the same treatment as throw rugs that trip you. Get rid of them.

  • Espo may be a little harsh on the Basset, but his point is very true. eliminate the chances of mishaps and that will equal more sofa time or safe time.

    Oh splat

    what's that

    I tripped over the stupid cat

    again. Drat!

    good look, and luck, Dorothy, are we still in Kansas?

  • Well, there might have been a rather large rubbermaid tub involved as well. . .in any case the basement door was slightly open--I closed it fully when my head made contact. And as far age related falls--I'm 45 --that gives me 20 years of free falls, right?

    However, you are both right. I go for a period with out falling (because I'm vigilant) and then. . .well why'd I put that tub in the middle of the kitchen floor? Right near the basement stairs? Darwin award!!

  • ps-- we're in KC Missouri--just follow that yellow brick road from Kansas

  • I call it "Having a Parkinson's Pity Party"!!! No time for that...gotta keep moving forward and find something to be happy about each day. You are right...There is too much at stake! Roll On, chrismw!
