The Truth Be Told

After a busy morning preparing for Bunco Saturday night, cleaning cat boxes, feeding the zoo, and other morning chores I decided to take Honey for a walk.  We walked a block and on the way I fell.  I like to say I kissed the sidewalk but actually I was preparing to step down in the street across from the house and down I went face first.  A man in a truck stopped and help me stand.  The was blood all over but all I could think of was where was Honey my dog.

This was my face when the man from a truck picked me up.

A ll could say was where was Honey.  He assured me she was in the yard .  She had crossed the street, slipped in under the gate and was waiting for me.  A neighbor from the corner came down and walked me across the street into my yard and the man who had picked up then left. I walked into the house, woked David and started wiping the blood.  David wanted to take me to the doctor but I had him try to reach Cindy by phone.  She was in a meeting and been told to turn her phone off.  So I sat and dabbed my face.  David stayed right by me and tried to reach Cindy again.  I don’t know if he finally got her or if she called in then came home.

After looking me over she decided we would go the the hospital so we did.  To make a long story short I was finally admitted. This started with a round of tests which determined my butt was staying over for observation. (they were afraid I may have suffered a stoke or something.)

I was finally released yesterday afternoon when it was decided I have a great heart and the damaged was a fractured bone in my nose.  So here I sit this morning after a good night’s sleep, after a shower last night, and Cindy having put Neosporin on my abrasions  last night and this morning before she left for work, shaking her finger at me saying do nothing but rest.  I will probably sit in my room and read because to me that is resting.

Today I look like Bozo the clown or having been street mugged..


How much reading I’ll do depends on if I need my glasses or not .  But as they say I will cross that bridge( a pun son) when I come to it!

Have a great day and step carefully and lightly not like me.

  1. Looks like you got too close to the alligator cage! Staff needs to make sure the bars are nice and tight on them critters…

  2. Wow . . . just wow. Part of me thinks you need to get ‘out’ more but then, viewing your photos – NO – – – STAY IN! Wrapped in cotton/bubble wrap, whatever – you are DANGEROUS on your own! Glad to hear Honey was smart & didn’t run off. Thank heavens that man stopped to help you!
    REST, Lady and THAT’S AN ORDER!!!

  3. Wow you did a good one! Cyndi mention writing a self-story. So. here it is: I fell face down in January. I caught my foot on an electrical cord on the floor. Could not regain my balance, screamed and hit the floor flat down. I think due to a class in my 20’s. self-defence/judo I learn to use my hand and forearm to slap the floor to absorb the shock of the fall, I didn’t get hurt. BUT, if I was outside I am sure I would have had injuries. So sorry for your accident. Hope you heal soon. It seems bizarre that we can fall so easily now. Glad the puppy went home so you didn’t need to search for her too.

  4. So sorry to read about your fall. I hope you get better fast. Will they need to operate on your nose?

  5. What have you been doing?!

    Sorry to learn re your accident. Take care
