~ my newest acrobatic ???? ~
Yesterday, when I was walking my dog, the back of my building has about 10 ft. of flat area, and then about 20 ft. downhill. I keep her up on the flat. Well, somehow yesterday she pooped over half way down the hill, I went to get it with the bag, slipped and fell and slid. OUCH. And to make it worse I was still in my bathrobe and pj's. Since I've had a TKR and a revision, I can't crawl up on my knees, so I sort of shinnied up sideways, taking everything on the ground with me. That was hard. By the time I got to the top I realized my hands, elbow and shoulder were skinned and the flesh over my knee was also skinned. I just sat for a bit and then used my "hippopotamus" way of getting up on my feet. I came in, took everything off and immediately put it in the washer and took a shower I could tell the implement in my knee was fine, but the flesh around it was sore, like when it's going to rain. So, now I'm wearing a brace, just to take the pressure off of it and help keep the swelling down.
So, that's my newest acrobatic display! Lovely. And my next trick will be ……….. ??????????
