Hi! This is me before the incident.
You see, yesterday at the post office, I had to stand too long. Sometimes when this happens, my blood pressure gets too low and I pass out. This can be stopped by sitting or laying down. Phil begged them for a chair for me, and they would not get one. Something like this would have been nice, ha ha!
Shortly, everything looked like this.
Then I passed out totally (I blame the post office for no chair). Phil and another man who was there caught me and lowered me to the floor. Then these people were called, plus an ambulance.
Even when I regained consciousness, I could not move. So after a brief exam, they took me to the E.R..
Turns out I have a cracked or bruised tailbone, which will take months to heal. Plus a messed up knee. All from the fainting. So here is where I will be spending most of my time, on a donut cushion.
Oh, and Phil is having a heart catheterazation on Monday morning. It's been a rough week.

Muscles slacken, grip weakens, joints stiffen…
Hikes to the mountains are a thing of the past.
Even a stroll down the road has its terrors.”
