Humpty Dumpty

About 5 this morning I proceeded to let the dog out. She runs on a long chain that stretches down to the pasture. For many reasons she cannot run free. Unfortunately for moi, the end of the chain was lying a distance from the door. Not noticing that the deck was iced over I stepped out and went down hard. My bad knee went out and I landed on the opposite side.

The knee thing is always painful and while I lay there breathing through the hurt, I froze to the ice. No one else was up so I peeled my parts off the deck and crawled inside where I had a little cry connected more to the ignominy of the situation than anything else. By this time I knew I wasn't badly hurt.

The dog was really quite understanding and concerned, didn't even try to escape, just looked at me quizzically like what are up to this time?

On the plus side, the husband washed the dishes and ran the sweeper and I'm pretty sure I can still make pincushions plus the sun is trying hard to break through the clouds.

Some Ibuprofen is next as soon as I eat something, don't like taking them, but today it feels necessary.

Ouch!

That does sound painful.

And humiliating.

As so many events do these days, it became another reminder of aging, that awful feeling of helplessness and the what ifs. Gee, I'm not aging gracefully lol...

Owie. Are you bruised? (I mean the leg, not the ego.)

Take care of yourself today.

A few bruises, a little sore and a bit ticked off. :-)

Glad you weren't seriously hurt. I totally get taking a moment to shed a few tears. It's a shock to go down like that. Last winter I fell down the back hill while holding onto Andy's leash - I didn't just shed a tear - I bawled. Though if someone had been around to help me up I would have put on a brave face. When alone it seems sadder I guess.

Yeah - take it easy today!

Right on, it's being alone that makes it all worse.

OMG, what an awful thing to have happen. I do hope that you're OK and that the ibuprofen is sufficient to treat your injuries...

All good today. I really hate falling, it makes me feel so damned old and helpless. Thanks for the good vibes ;-)
