Dancing To The Tune Of Life ... ON ONE LEG

Dancing To The Tune of Life ... On One Leg

I wrote a happy poem about dancing to the tune of life.  Well, it's still a happy poem ... there's a catch now.  I'm going to have to do it on one leg for some time!

Today ... Skip and I went to a restaurant ... the manager (our friend) was walking us to the 
table.  The next thing I knew ... I had taken a bad fall, my left knee hitting the tile floor.  The pain was excruciating.  The floor was very slippery, we didn't know it.

I was taken to the hospital, x-rayed ... told I had a broken knee cap.  I was sent home on crutches, a stabilizer/immobilizer on my leg.  Do not bend it for 6-8 weeks ... and see your orthopaedic soon as possible.

So, I'm now 'dancing to the tune of  life on one leg'!

Author's Note:  

I couldn't believe the fall I took today ... it was one fall I never saw coming.  This was one fall where the pain was so great ... I couldn't jump up quickly from, look around to see if someone saw me.  I can't believe I cried in public in front of people.

  1. My heart goes out to you. I will put in a prayer for the Lord to stand by your side and help ease your pain. Lots of love and hugs going your way.

  2. I wish I could take some of your pain. It is one thing after another isn't it? I feel so bad for you. You are in my prayers each day (and night). Let me know if there is anything I can do for you! Love, Ms. Nancy

  3. and tumble in public! I remember one time, when I got up from a table at a restaurant, to grab my son some napkins, and as soon as I got up, I fell to the floor. My hip had somehow popped right out of place and I couldn't get it back in until the EMT's came. I cried so hard until then, and no one could move me or do anything to help really. It was such a crazy thing!
