August 16 th 2013 - I had a freak accident IN MY HOME.
Went to sit down on one of my retro '50's kitchen set chairs...
and it collapsed underneath me throwing me to the floor -
The screws dragging across my thighs cutting me up.
This all took place in about a second.
I lay there bleeding, and badly injured.
crawled outside finally and found someone to help me,
I was ambulanced to the hospital, on a flat board.
The injury turned out to be a sprain from the top of my neck to below my tush.
This includes - torn muscles, torn ligaments plus a tetnus shot because of the jagged cuts I got on my inner thighs.
Well - it is at least a 4 month recovery, and I am currently in physical therapy.
The pain indescribable. My Dr. prescribed me pain meds I could inject myself.
Wow that 1 1/2 " needle took some courage to jab into my leg. But the pain relief - oh yes! Recovery is a very slow process, and I am lonely frustrated and pretty down, as my life is limited to watching movies creeping slowly - in walks outside, and using - yes those scooter chairs in every store that has one.
I have run people over, backed into display shelves, and over-all wished like hell that these turtle-mobiles had mini-Harley engines, so I could really cause some damage.
I am damaged. Yes, I welcome all pity and sympathy and gifts and money and candy and shopping trips you can send my way...<what?>...
I think I am getting close to setting a worlds record for # of movies viewed since August 16.
