Battered and Bruised - 15th September 2011
Well Readers I wish to apologise for not submitting a post on my blog for the last couple of weeks, but I promise I have a genuine excuse. I recently had a rather serious fall down a flight of stairs and as a result have been unable to sit at the computer for any length of time, if at all. At the time of the incident, my daughter and friends being the caring and responsible people they are, tried to escort me to the hospital. However I was less responsible, due to ridiculous pride and the fact I felt seriously humiliated, along with not wanting to worry anyone, insisted I was fine and just wanted to go home. As one would expect I remained composed until I arrived at my house and laid on my bed where I proceeded to sob for an hour or so, praying death would take me quickly to minimise my suffering. Eventually the shock, exhaustion and some serious painkillers meant my good friend sleep came to my aid.
The next morning brought no relief, as the magnitude of my injuries became more evident. My entire body from head to toe was covered with multiple contusions, scratches and abrasions, along with the fact that I could barely move and was urinating blood….hmmm not a good sign by any-ones standards. As it turned out I did eventually visit the doctor and have had spinal Xray’s along with other examinations. The results: I have a seriously bruised ego, some badly strained muscles and ligaments, bruised kidneys and spine and am basically stiff and sore. Other than that, you will be glad to know, that although I am still in quite a bit of pain and feeling very sorry for myself there are no serious injuries, but I will see minimal action for about 6 weeks.
So there it is…the reason for no posting. Anyway if you can all be patient for another couple of days I will submit the post I had intended before all the dramas took place.
And remember keep reading it’s cheaper than therapy.
Until Then, (a little Battered and Bruised) With Love Always, Danae
