My daughter fell over on some black ice this morning and hurt her neck and her knee.
She was sent home from work and came to spend the day with me.
I think she must have jolted her neck as she put out her arm to stop her fall.
It has gone into spasm and is very stiff and sore.
She sat in my chair, which is all set up with cushions etc.
I put ice on her neck and knee and she had some anti inflamatory tablets.
It gave me a real purpose to look after her.
She kept saying how now she had an idea of what I live with each day and how helpful the neck cushion and all the others were at getting her comfortable. She also said that she thought of me when she fell and of how that would have really hurt me and possibly caused a real problem with my newly operated on neck.
I am really sorry that she fell, but it has been wonderful to have one of my closest loved ones now understand what this feels like. As she got up to go, she could hardly move her neck and said that she felt just like me!
