Just a little update. After my fall down the steps on Saturday I did go to the ER and was told everything looked OK but to see the surgeon right away. I got in this morning and he said the xrays look fine. I have a bit more pain down my leg, but it is hard to say what it is from. I landed with my feet still on the second step and my body on the floor and my left arm thru a tempered glass tabletop. I am lucky I put my brace on when I went to the basement I guess. I have a few punctures, but also a deep scratch in my TSLO from the glass table. My hip is very bothersome and my ankle is popping when I step, so I am using the walker again. No walking for me for 1 week then we will look again at whats going on. All in all it could have been much much worse!
To even make things more aggravating we had a car accident on the way home. My poor sister in law agreed to drive me today, we were coming home in a construction zone and became stopped in traffic. We had about 20 feet inbetween the cars and the tractor trailer infront of us decided to start backing up! We backed up as much as we could, the truck behind us was backing up as well, of course everyone was honking at the same time. The tractor trailer continued to back up over the front bumper of our car and pushed us harder into the truck behind us. He finally stopped and pulled forward. What the ***! The car only received minor damage, but no one can figure out what the driver was doing. I was reclined pretty far and only got a little jolt to my neck. He then proceded to hit several construction zone signs and markers.
I NEED A VACATION!
