fly through the air with the greatest of ease

















only to land CLUNK on the ground. At a doctor's office of all things, falling down the stairs. Been a long time since I fell like that - about six steps and into the hallway (I must be jet-propelled). So odd. Laying on the floor of a medical building's basement thinking, gee whiz, I just fell down the stairs. I am actually fine except for a sore wrist and hand and a sideways view of the world. Thank goodness for a coat that is like wearing a giant sleeping bag. And thanks to the lovely man who came to my aid and the lovely nurses whose first response was "would you like some tea?". My kind of medical attention :)

oh, Susan! Ouch! Hope the soreness dissipates quickly.

I hope you did not hit your head. Remember "RICE" for injured limbs: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. Ice on and off for the first 24 hours, then change to hot compresses to speed healing, compression (with an Ace wrap) and elevation to minimize swelling.

Ouch, Susan, that sounds horribly painful. Hope the soreness goes soon.
