Haste Makes Waste


Yesterday was a typical busy Monday. I had my week planned out. However, things don't always work out the way we plan. As I hurried out the door from one chore to the next, I fell down my back stairs. I knew I was very bruised from my face to my knees, but my back is extremely bad. 

After a very rough night, Bill (who is on the road) convinced me to call the doctor, who immediately sent me for X-Rays.  Along with deep bruises inside and out (especially my liver), I have two broken ribs. This explains why I cannot get comfortable in any position I am in, whether it is sitting or laying down. I am also having trouble breathing. 

Consequently, I am forced into a blogging break until I can get this under control. I really hope that will be very soon, because this is excruciating. Thanks for your kind thoughts. I appreciate it. Be safe.

  19. I wish I could give you a hug -- but since I have had broken ribs myself - I know that would just hurt. So I'd have to just make you some tea, put a kitty on my lap, and read some poetry aloud. :)
    Feel better soon my friend! <3

  20. McGuffy I am so sorry! We have been on vacation and I could not keep up with commenting and reading blogs. On the 4th of December when they blasted the kidney stone something must have happened to my back when I was on the operating table. It was killing me. It finally calmed down while we were in Florida. I was beginning to think they had really done something to it. Take care. I had one broken rib and taping helped. Sending you get well quick thoughts!
