I should have known this was going to happen. I should have stayed home and locked the door and swallowed the key. My natural instincts suck but for some reason I refused to remember that little (well big) fact. So you don't all think I am crazy you may want to read this older post for some back story. Paybacks a Bitch
This is the story of my life, my motto is "the glass is half empty" and this is why. I should know better than to pat myself on the back. The last two posts should have been ample warning of what lay ahead, but in my delusion it took me by surprise.
A nice young man came over to help me... of course I couldn't have this humiliation alone, and as I sighed with relief the phone was ok he said "I would be more upset about the coffee loss". He helped me off the ground which was no easy feat and I picked up my possessions and my pride and hobbled into the hospital. Hobbled being the operative word.
This fall was almost identical to the one I took in NYC back in December (you would know about this tumble if you clicked on the link above). My left ankle turned out, not as severly as in Dec. and I hit the concrete. Of course I landed on my "bad" knee and "bad" wrist. I have been doing so well in physical therapy and told the therapist just that morning that the pain in my knee was better. It is only located in the joint itself, not radiating up and down my leg. Now I feel like I am back to square one.
The shift ended with some training on a new and improved way to pool cryopercipitate and a visit with my hematologist. At least she had good news and I don't have to go back for four months. I made some yummy scrambled eggs for myself and the youngest who is home sick with a sore throat. After I pick up the oldest from college I am going to bed and not getting up until I have to go to work tonight. I have already warned the husband that nothing is getting done today. There is a F*cking dog barking down the street and if it keeps me awake I am hitting the medicine cabinet. I HATE barking dogs.
Ok enough depression for today, I have 10 days until we go to NYC so maybe if I am really careful I won't need a wheel chair. Although that could get us through lines quicker......
