Safe ... but not so sound !

Well, I was hoping to have a wonderful blog entry for you with lots of pictures and a rundown of where I've been. However, that's not so easy from a hospital bed !

To make the story short...I arrived home Tuesday night and while emptying my car I tripped over a rock and fractured my femur. Not much fun, as you can imagine ... but at least the operation is over and I am in a lovely rehab here in the hospital. I start physical therapy on Monday and it should be all uphill from there.

Some of you may remember the blog that i wrote about "The I hate to exercise, exercises". I can tell you that I'm so happy now that I stayed on them because all the PT folks tell me I am a great candidate to be walking and almost back to normal in 4 to 6 weeks. So that's very encouraging and once I get home I will get my pictures going and try to get you up to date.

Hugs to all of you. Ginnie

Ginnie, I am so sorry to hear this news. After a vacation and then....boom. Well, please mend quickly. Give us updates from the hospital as to how you are doing. Take care. Can't wait to hear about your vacation adventures.

At least you can't say that you never catch a break. Seriously: sorry about that. I hope you do recover quickly.

OH NO! Poor thing! Bless your heart (and all adjoining parts!)
BUT, you will be up and about real soon.
It could have been a worse break!
You are HOME, not in a hospital far away.
You are still able to be on the computer...
Shall I continue my list of good things?

I am oh so sorry about your accident. Good wishes and positive vibes are flying from our place to yours. I am so glad you are doing well. Your terrific attitude will serve you well while you are healing.

Oh my dear! I am so sorry for your broken state. I am sure with some hard work in physio you will be ready to go dancing soon.

I seems your was just an accident and that you do not suffer from spells of losing you balance and falling. My sister who does all the hiking and traveling on her own does this. She has to be careful of when and how she steps. It does not slow her down any but it is a worry.

I mentioned the Carolina Shag in my last post. Do you dance it? I suspect not as you are not a native Carolinian.

Hi Ginnie, Sorry that I haven't been around lately and am even more sorry to hear of your accident. I hope by the time you read this, you will be feeling much better. I was wondering what happened to you after I read your last comment on my blog. For a bit there, I thought maybe you had your knees done too!
Love Di ♥
