Happy Friday

So glad to put Thursday behind me, it started wrong with my right foot not staying on the step I put it on, didn't fall down just slammed into the half wall, back sore and twisted right ankle ouch! Not too bad I only feel if I step wrong, been dragging it around for years. Later I decided to take Nacho for a short walk, so my back didn't stiffen up, even wore my good shoes. As we walked seeing that Shannon was out one of Nacho’s girlfriends so we stopped by for a little play date, most of the play dates are when Shannon shows up at our house after she has jumped over her fence. They were having fun, for us meaning they were wearing each other out; Shannon has bones and raw hides hidden all over the yard! Of course Nacho found one with a soft wrap around it Shannon wasn't happy about it, Nacho got the soft wrap off in no time, it was at least 2 feet long he was running away from Shannon, then Sonja (Shannon’s human) and I were also trying to catch him, it was getting shorter when we caught him there was just a small piece sticking out of his mouth, I got a good hold of it pulling it out it was still in one long piece, Shannon grabbed a small piece of what I had already pulled out, Nacho bite down before I had the last bit of it out, having a foot and half it in my hand, I started looking for something tall enough to get it out of their reach, saw the grill maybe 4 feet away started for it the two had finished the little bit they had, came running at me, almost there reached out got it! Something is wrong where the heck is my left leg, tried pulling it toward me it was stuck, crap I'm going down, did manage to get my right leg under me three point landing big Ouch!! My right knee took the worst of it, I knew because I could feel it normally I can’t! Sonja came tried to pull me up, I said “NO” got to take inventory! Okay everything is facing the right way, up on my own two feet again took a step with the left good, now the right oh my that hurts! Got to my walker time to go, only a block and half to go, crap went the wrong way make that 2 blocks. Good thing was my back didn't hurt as much my right leg did. Got home iced my knee and put heat on my back, both are bruised and sore leaving a mark I’ll be okay looking forward to nice weather for the weekend Grill is ready that means I'm not the one doing the cooking!

Oh man that's ah hike when hurting. I have been so frustrated lately with numbness and falling or just have to sit in a bubble. I would rather sit in warmer weather. I hope your weekend goes well.

You're right I try not to fall more than once a day. If the weather forecast is right it will be the first nice day in a very long time!

Be careful! yes it is always the second fall that really nails you. Rest, Ice, Comprsssion, elevation. Rest means taking it easy! best wishes, mary

I'm always careful just not always successful Tee Hee:) Thankfully all are on my bad side. You know me too well! Taking it easy isn't something I'm known for! It's just so hard, I'll keep working on it. Mary
