Oh Don. Please look after yourself...klutz or not, we are all prone to falls as we 'mature'.

Try zinc cream on the broken skin. I find I don't scar with zinc after grazing knees and elbows.

I fought a battle with my cement driveway, and lost. The driveway suffered no visible damage at all. Me? Uff da!!!

In addition to my previously mentioned areas of hurt, now after 9+ hours I must add every muscle and bone in my body to the list. I'm much too old to absorb the hit I took today. I don't remember anything ever being this bad before.

My wrists are useless from being over-extended and sprained. I had difficulty opening a carton of milk at dinner.

With enough ice on the goose egg on my forehead, that swelling is finally going down. However, the swelling around my cheekbone is still there and my eye has closed from swelling. It's strange that I don't have a raging headache.

Typing with only one eye is iffy at best. Since I got up at 4:30 this morning and didn't allow myself to nap this afternoon, I am very tired.

Maybe I should move the clocks ahead a couple of hours so I can go to bed now. :lol:

Don

P.S. I guess this means I'll need to cancel my golf game tomorrow. :(

Thanks to my friends for prayers. Leon had a 24 hour TIA and did put quite a scare in us. He got to come home Tuesday night about 8:20, and he and I were so glad to be here and thankful to our gracious God that he did not have a major stroke. He had been weak on one side for 24 hours.

Thank you, dear Edy, for your suggestions. I'm not sure about what you mean by "search." I do have some key words listed, and I know that eventually they'll have the book on Amazon fixed so you can read samples. I have some sample poems as well on my author Facebook page (Verna Cole Mitchell).
I am praying God will be honored by the poems in the book. I appreciate your comments.

Verna, I meant to say the "look inside" feature that is available for your "Pansies" book. I don't know why the word "search" came to mind, unless I was thinking the preview feature was called "search inside." Anyway, I'm hoping you have a best seller on your hands. 8)

My goodness, Don. What next? I'm so glad you didn't break a hip or an arm or leg or something. If you aren't considerably better by Sunday or Monday, we'll all arrive at the same time and drag you to the nearest hospital. Thank the Lord you weren't knocked unconscious or something.

Whatever happened to the boy who was ringing your doorbell and running? I hope it's stopped now because Halloween would be a field day for this boy and his buddies if it hasn't.

I'm so glad to see Verna dropped in to give a late report on Leon. Knowing how devoted Verna and Leon are to each other, I can only imagine the concern she felt until the MRI findings were available. God bless both of them and give them many, many more years together.

Love to all -

Here is the picture that comes to mind...
I can see it now. With 2-3 of you sitting on me to hold me down, another person ties a rope to my leg and then ties the other end to the hitch of a tractor. At a top speed of 30mph I get dragged the 25 miles on pavement to the hospital. If very little was wrong with me before, the docs would go crazy repairing the damage from dragging.

The doorbell kid stopped his annoying little game. I think his finger must have developed a painful blister from his door-bell-ringing adventure.

I'm feeling better today. My eye was swollen shut most of the day, but is opening some now. Yea!!! I'm getting my depth perception back again! I got very little sleep last night, but was able to nap for 3 1/2 hours this afternoon. The rib hurts a lot, but I expected that.

Don, take care of yourself! How long has it been since you've had a good physical??? Maybe you'd find out what's causing you to fall. We need you to hang around the porch for a long time!

My last good physical? It was 9 months ago in mid-January. I'm not due for another one for 3 1/2 months.

What caused me to fall? My foot got tangled in an air hose - throwing me off balance as I was walking toward my air compressor.

I hope to hang around the porch for a while.

Don, I just thought of another way to get rid of the annoying little boy who kept ringing your doorbell and running.

Cover the doorbell with Crazy Glue! What a genius idea! That way he'd be stuck for hours til you came out and released him, pulling the skin off his finger during the process. Of course, you'd be charged with cruelty to a minor but, hey, isn't worth it, even if you get arrested, :cop get a mug shot, 30 days in jail with derelicts from the Bronx, and having your name and picture in the newspapers and on television for being "The Meanest Neighbor in Minnesota?" :pirate2

Think about it, Don. If you like it, I'll come up with some more great ideas. :superhappy :clap

With my face swollen and black/blue from my unexpected close encounter with the cement driveway, now would be a great time to get a mug shot. I look like a road-killed raccoon with 18-wheeler tire tracks extending from head to paws.

Then, when my face returns to normal again, nobody would recognize me from the mug shot photo. See...no jail time for me, and no "meany" labels either.

However, I might be in trouble if this "look" is the new normal. :shock:

Even now, the neighbors probably think someone else moved into my house. :lol:

Don, Why not jump out of the bush as you mentioned in a previous post. Perhaps your face might scare the boy without even touching him. Isn't Halloween coming up soon? You won't even need to dress up and the kid couldn't identify whether it was the man in the house, a damaged gnome or a gargoyle.

Yes, of course!!!

I now have a built-in Halloween mask!

I even scare myself half to death just looking into a mirror. That kid would freak out and run screaming down the street.

Hmmm...What's a "damaged" gnome or gargoyle? I don't recall ever seeing one of them...unless that describes all of us.
