I almost didn’t get a blog out at all today, I started the day with coffee with Donna, and got her off to the truck company. I Then went back in my Grandson’s room and put a movie on and laid in the bed.
If I hadn’t told you I fell yesterday in the garage when I tripped on an air hose that hadn’t been rolled up and stored properly, when some one used it. I was carrying a box of Tide in one hand and a forty lb bag of softener salt in the other and before I knew it I was on the concrete garage floor with my right knee jammed and in considerable pain. Luckily I landed on top of the bag of salt and didn’t break an arm or wrist last like my last fall in 2005. Again I will repeat it sure seems to hurt worse in your 60’s than it did in your 20’s, and I was slow getting up. My right kneecap swelled to twice the size of my left and I could barely walk. I took pain killers last night and this morning the swelling was down some but still there and the pain was a lot better. I couldn’t say much to Donna or she would heave insisted on a trip to the emergency room which I have found in most cases is just an added expense.
Anyway I stayed off my feet most of the day except for a trip to the Post Office to pick the package up they said they were going to deliver today and didn’t, and a stop at Walgreen’s to get a couple of Donna’s prescriptions my buddy the pharmacist said to take the same pain killer’s I did and it will probably be a few day’s before the pain is gone.
I know this pales in comparison to other’s physical ailments I have read about in the past few weeks so I am not in the least complaining.
Anyway I will close with this be safe out there and watch out for hose’s on the ground. Sam & Donna.
