I didn’t think I had anything to post about. But then, something positive happened. Because of my falls, last one was the day Ian hit us, so I think Oct something, I haven’t done anything in the house.
Because that day, DH was here, sleeping in a chair, and the dryer was still running. The timer mechanism to shut it off doesn’t work. I thought, I’ll just shut it off, I don’t want to wake him up.
So, I tried, and the little jolt of getting the door open, cuz it sticks, was enough to knock me off my balance, and I fell face first. Thankfully I didn’t have my glasses on! I fell face first into the dryer door, and the little bit of corner wall that’s there.
My cheekbones hit first, then I just softly slid to the floor. Then I had to wake up DH! I wanted to try getting myself up. So I had him stand on the back edge of pillow, while I held onto the recliner arm. And I was able to do it! Immediately went to bed with some Tylenol PM!! And slept almost 24 hours. Thank goodness for diapers!
Thank God I could get up! And no injuries except being sore for several days!!
But I stopped doing anything! Unless it was waist high.
Today DD1 had put some root veggies in the oven, asked me to turn off in half hour, and she went to sleep. Why?? I guess she was tired. So, when the alarm rang, I turned off the timer, and looked in the oven. They were in an iron frying pan, kinda heavy. But I thought to myself, I can do this!
And so I did!! So proud of myself! Can’t wait to tell her and DH!!
I did it ALL by myself! And I will bask in the glory of my achievement for days to come!!
