Oh No!! I can't believe what I have done.....

Just wandered out into the garden while the lunch heated up... whoops!!  walking along the cobbled path don't know how but took a tumble and landed on the steps to the deck right across my right hand side bust area ... ouch!! graised knee, elbow and a small one on the head also hands where I must have put them out to save myself .... how many times are we told not to try and do that .
Upshot to all this ..... after an afternoon at ED......  X-rays and ECG ( just in case I had had a funny turn in the ticker area) I knew I hadn't but they had to check they said .... They believe I have a couple of cracked ribs...
Yes they said "believe"  as sometimes rib cracks don't show on the x-rays   ... so pain killers and rest was the order of the day .... Me! I am wondering how the heck I am going to get in and out of bed ... Oh! well  we will see in a minute, electric blanket is on and a nice cup of tea is made ...so night night.

A quick prayer,          please ... please .... surely nothing else can go wrong I have had enough ... what with the previous injuries etc. Oh! well must just be my turn, but I think I have had my fair share now.

OK Madam, time to take it easy - someone is suggesteing you slow down and look after yourself. What a fright you must have given yourself and I bet you felt sick to your stomach. Epsom salts in a warm bath followed by a few drops of Arnica.
Fingers crossed for fast healing and feeling better tomorrow.
hugs - Miche'le

Oh Laurie I am so sorry to hear of your fall. It's so easy to do (as I can attest)! Hope the next few days aren't too painful for you and that bruises come out quickly and you heal well. Prayers are being offered for your quick recovery! Blessings!
