Hi Everyone
I Really Did It This Time
I Hit My Head And Had To Be Sent To A Head Trauma Unit Because I Had A Subdural Hematoma ( A Bleed In The Brain
I Have To Wait 2 Weeks For Repeat Ct To See If I Need Brain Surgery To Remove The Blood:-(very Scary

Please Guys Be Soooo Careful

Pat1,

That had to have hurt! I really hope the brain surgery isn't going to be necessary. Hope you are resting well.

Sorry to hear about the fall. I hope it all works out ok without the brain surgery.
I thought I was the fall expert on here, seems you are giving me a run for my money. :lol: After all, I thought I was the only aby-normal one on here?
Seriously, this is a wake up call. Time to make some changes to prevent this from happening again. Right?

I am so sorry to hear about your terrible fall. I have had several but none have injured me as of yet? I guess it might be a matter of time. I hope you do not need to be operated on. Life is hard enough without this happening. :-(

That is so scary- my mom fell today also

Pat,
I am so sorry for your fall- that must be so scary. I hope your head is healing on its own and you can spend your energy doing something you enjoy. My mom fell today and I got bits and pieces of the story because she has lost her voice. She was walking and just tripped over the concrete crack. I got a call while she was at the Doc in the box having herself looked over. I know she is angry and even more so that she hit her chin and nose- scratched them up and broke her thumb. Poor thing. I feel so horrible for her. I want her to be able to enjoy life and not be fearful of taking a stroll around the block.
Take Care!
