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'!
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.
