Yesterday I slipped and fell all the way down my basement stairs. I had to go to the hospital. No breaks, but tons of bruises down my left side and my arm is in a sling. Also, there was a broken bowl and cereal EVERYWHERE that went flying as I fell and that Matt had to clean up for me when we got home. Today I feel worse, because all those aches that weren't bad yesterday are now showing themselves - my back and neck. I'm off today from work because I am in a lot of pain and can't really drive, but I'm hoping to be back into things tomorrow. It could have been a lot worse, but we desperately need railings. At least going upstairs there are walls on each side, but in the basement, it is wide open on the right, so a person could technically fall to the right and down the height of 11 stairs without anything to stop them.
Back to blogging when it gets easier to move around and to type - right now i'm pretty much one handed!
