Really. I am. Want proof? OK. Last night we went to the park to see the pops concert. Of course, it was canceled due to rain, but we didn't know that. We had meet up with 2 other families to have a picnic while we watched the concert.
I was sitting in a chair, kind of like this one. Do you see those little straps holding out the footrest? Yeah. Wish I had paid attention to them. I caught my right foot as I was trying to stand up. Next thing I know, I'm on my hands & left knee looking down at the tree root I landed on. My right foot was still tangled up in the chair, which was on top of me. Luckily those things are light.
I hobbled to the car. When we got home Paige shared her Ariel ice pack with me. Of course I landed on the knee that I hurt in the Army, resulting in my medical discharge. But that's another post. I took an Ambien so I could sleep. It hurt, but not nearly enough to pay that $125 emergency room copay. I paid the $15 copay at a local Urgent Care this morning. I was examined & x-rayed. My knee is bruised, but nothing is broken. I've been told to keep it elevated, heat & ice, stay off it as much as possible, and take prescription as needed for pain.
Ronnie says I wasn't that graceful when I fell. Maybe I'm just a klutz.
