Update On My Fall

Here are just a few pictures of the injuries from my fall. Many places on my body are black, but in places I can't show. The latest news is that I may have a cracked rib. I need extensive dental work and may loose my two front teeth. I am going to the dentist and my doctor on Wednesday and Thursday. I now think the reason I gained so much weight from my steroids was so I would have some padding and not get hurt worse or killed. The fat was a good thing!
Here is the awesome get well card that Anne Marie made me!!! And this picture and my header shows the white orchid that my kids gave me! I hope I don't kill it. Very exciting, I have never had an orchid before! Only seen them in shows. On my next post I hope to get back to the answer of what they were covering as the storm came in. This week I will enjoy our wonderful mountain air, and try to breathe very carefully.



"I’m hurt and in pain; Give me space for healing, and mountain air."

Oh my goodness, Ginny! So sorry to open the blog page and find the news of your recent fall. May the Lord lay his healing hand on your physical frame and give you ease from the pains you feel. I'm still surviving - and we are, in fact, celebrating our 56th anniv at a brother-in-laws in Gatlingburg. Our prayers are with you and Phil.

Well at least you didn't lose your sense of humor. That does look rather painful I hope they gave you some good meds to help with that.
The get well card is the most adorable. That had to have made you feel better

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Wow....I feel for you. I hope within a couple of months, this will all be behind you and you're feeling good again. What a fall that musta been.

And Ginny, ps.....I LOVE your lookout on how things in life happen and you always find the 'silver lining'.......btw, I too collect fat cells. That's really about all I am good at these days. [Steroids'll do it!!]
