LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

First thank you all for the well wishes concerning my giant leap down my steps…… its been rough going but I am on the mend… not quite as quickly as I would like but …. I guess everything takes some time… healing bones…heads….hearts….while we all may want to rush things…. remember its going to happen when it happens…¬† so….enough of that…¬† when I fell I landed on my right hand so it has been hard doing too much…¬†been catching up on my reading… I am into a good mystery … called¬†”Promise Me”…..¬†and have done a few¬†new sketches too that I cant wait to show you in the near future but typing is still a bit difficult…

Now I have this friend who seems to want to make laugh so hard¬†my ribs hurt by sending me silly little emails to keep my spirits up… God love her …¬† she truly “cracks” ¬†me up…¬†¬†and has been a welcome respite to feeling a bit on the helpless side right now…¬†She’s the best…. So I am going to pass along a few of these little nuggets to make you smile until I¬†am back ….Courtesy of Ms Sandi Mcbride…¬† http://www.sandimcbride.blogspot.com/…. read below …I truly hope you enjoy them as much as I have…¬†

Ok my friends….¬†you know how you see those big signs on TV that say… DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!…¬† well heed my words on this one…DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!¬† or anywhere else for that matter….

Alas… I havent spoken much about this… a few people know that I have a broken foot that has plagued me and pained me for quite some time now….¬†I need an operation to correct the matter ( had just seen an orthopedic surgeon Thursday who wants to schedule me for a cat scan and an MRI because this has gone on far too long and is healing improperly)¬†….¬†which is another story in itself¬†¬†…….. I will not….. at this time…… bore you with all¬†those details…. however as a result of this… I am unable to wear shoes and the break/fracture is at the bottom of the foot on the ball joint under the big toe….I have over compensated in the way I walk on it and have some problems because of this…. so …the other night ….. I decided I would take a leap down¬†the stairs¬†…..¬†

No ….. I didnt literally leap¬†on purpose…. goodness no….

however…..¬†

What¬†happened was…..¬† I stepped on the foot……¬†right on the worst area of the break/fracture as I was going down the stairs about 6:00 am (morning person I am not) ¬†……….this sent a downright AWFUL….most¬†EXCRUCIATING……. pain….. shooting all the way up my foot and calf to my hip…. so needless to say when that happened… I reacted pulling¬†my leg up¬†…. lost my footing….missed several steps as I came back down¬†on it¬†….. went sliding on¬†my arse on several steps… then tumbled from the landing down a few other steps… flipping¬†over as I did…¬†sliding¬†across those and basically landed face first on the floor…. Now¬†my guardian angel decided to catch me because I landed that face on a blanket that someone had decided to remove from their car and left in the hallway…..¬†

Of course I immediately went to the Emergency room and was pretty much x-rayed from head to toe….¬†¬† I am banged up …¬† sore ….. didn’t break anything… sore…¬†¬†

¬†I did bruise my rib cage¬†and the sternum….

¬†my muscles…. oh my…. feels¬† as if I excercised for 24 hours straight…….¬† but I truly am ok… will take a little while to heal…..¬† so they have given me some pretty strong pain medication…. I do ask forgiveness if I dont blog for a while….¬† or if I dont comment for a while…¬† I do ask that perhaps if you read some rambling silly stuff on your blog that you dont laugh too hard as it could be the medication that made me do it…. yeah¬† thats a good thing to blame it on….. also… if you notice that someone is lingering on your page or blog for hours…. dont worry it might be me….¬† I have had this bad habit of falling asleep with the computer in my lap for hours on end…

So …. I have had enough excitement to last me a little while anyhow…

PS… ANY MISPELLINGS…. BLAME IT ON THE MEDS¬† !! hehe

CIAO FOR NOW
