Tale of "A Blessing And A Curse" - A Fall - Dis-Abbobbled !

Well I guess you know the "Tale of It's a Curse...It's a Blessing" !!

Took a tumble 6 days ago... my balance not good ...(spinal cord & nerve roots compression causing more havoc with balance)

Not good that it happened on concrete- - took a tumble near front door (taking little flags off Memorial day wreath) - - wrists hit hard and so did right knee & twisted ankle. = "a Curse"

Verdict Dx: ligament tear ankle to knee = aaaa that's "the Blessing !" (didn't fracture anything)...

Challenge: tuff feat doing walker wearing right ankle & leg splint = no strength in arms/hands .... still trying to see it as a "Blessing"

I will say there's no such thing as "Dis-ABLED" I'm renaming it today "Dis-ABOBBLED" !!!
