Humpty Dumpty had a great fall ....

and I'm Humpty Dumpty!  Last night I fell from the top stair of my front porch and landed face down on the concrete walkway!!  I had stopped to fix the strap on my shoe, and my right ankle gave out or maybe I stepped off the step (not sure about that part) and I lost my balance and tumbled down 4 steps and landed face first.  Of course, there was blood everywhere and Mike was freaking out.  Quickly I realized that there was no way I was going to be able to get myself up as both my hands hurt like B*TCH (especially the one I just surgery on) and couldn't use them to get myself upright.  We called 911 and  fire dept and ambulance arrived within 3 minutes.  They got me up and then when I was standing I got super dizzy and nauseous. Mike ran and got me a folding chair and they started to evaluate me - they ended up putting me on the stretcher right away cuz the dizziness wasn't going away.   Anyway, to make this long story a bit shorter ... after spending the night  in the ER - I have a sprained right ankle, both hands/wrists are sprained, my nose is all cut up, my lips look like I was in a fight!  I can type slowly as long as I don't move my arm much.  I won't be able to drive though for a while.  I'm calling the hand surgeon on Monday - I'm most worried about the hand that I just had surgery on.

Hope everyone has a much better weekend than I'm having!!  LOL
