Have been getting a lot of rest and am feeling better.
I can officially confirm some of the rumors that were floating around here on the blog a while ago.
Some time ago I wrote something about having taken a fall, banging both my head and shoulder. Of how I had seemed to bang my head harder but that it was fine but my shoulder was bothering me. Now in jest (I think, lol) it was suggested by family, friends and readers here that there was an explanation for that. My head is a non-essential part of my body as there is nothing going on inside of it. It was compared to all sorts of things. I think I liked the bowling ball comparison the best. My head is hard on the outside and filled with nothing but hot air. It will hit the floor with a bang but isn’t damaged in any way. Hmmm.
It seems this theory may actually correct. About 8 or 9 days ago, Vi wanted to water the flowers in the front of the house. This involves dragging the garden hose from the back yard. I was doing this, walking backwards to keep an eye out to ensure the hose didn’t tangle in any of her other flower beds. Walking backwards, paying attention to where the hose may get to, I seem to forget that at the exterior side door of the house there is one concrete step. Yup, I tripped on it. Now I suppose fortunately for me, I must have used my head to break the fall on to the concrete sidewalk. From the bang I got one wicked headache, but that only lasted a minute or so and was gone. I picked myself up, dusted myself off and was fine. One of those situations when you are embarrassed, hoping none of the neighbors saw me.
It was not until the next morning in the shower, I noticed my right ankle was really swollen. The inside of my ankle and all the way down the inside of my foot was bruised black. I had been wearing sandals so I guess I banged it also on the way down. It didn’t hurt in the slightest, good deal. I am thinking it is the neuropathy, no feeling in my hands or feet. It took a couple of days though and it seemed to just get more and more painful. Still aches a little if I stretch the ankle in the wrong direction.
So it seemed I hit my head the hardest, no damage. Bang the ankle and big boo-boo. Maybe that bowling ball idea isn’t to far fetched after all. LOL
