Good Fri. went to BBQ at neighbors. Going into back yard hit soft ground on slope which dug in front wheels sliding me and hand on controller forward. Chair lurched and out I went as foot pads dug in. Feet ended up under chair in tangled mess. Son in law, daughter(Paramedic) and neighbor got me back in chair. Didn't appear that anything was broken so carried on. Wine, like time heals all wounds. Not! Sat am, pain in left ankle is unbearable. Off to ER. Xray shows 2 breaks in ankle and inconclusive on knee.
Bone density is so bad from being in chair they could almost see through them. Don't forget to ask your MD about Calcium and Vit. D if you don't move around much.
So they give me a morphine shot. Half hour later I throw up. Maybe just slight allergy? Put on toe to knee cast and send me home. Puke 2 more times on ride home during 12 min ride.
Then the real fun starts. Coming out both ends. Real exciting when you use a Hoyer lift. Bathroom floor sure got it's share of washings every hour or so all night long. So Sun. back to ER for IV fluids and IV Gravol .Diagnosis food poisoning after blood work etc. Still coming out the bottom till Tues night and I took Immodium.
Today I feel almost civilized. Not my usually cheery self. I hope everyone plays nice. I've already given a few timeouts today to save some from a permanent ban.
David's house flooded over the weekend so he's got issues to deal with too. So please try to be nice people.
