Fell for the first time since I began rehabilitation just about a year ago. What a bummer! And, of course, why is it always when we do something foolish? I was just trying to let the dog out onto the deck in Michigan when I got caught on the leg of my pajama pants and tumbled into the porch. Fortunately, all I did was jam the toes on my left foot (my good one) and skinned my knee. One of the toes is now painful and discolored so I don't get around as easily as I have lately. I'm using my cane more and moving very slowly. Reminds me of my first few weeks at home a year ago. What a pain! Hopefully this will heal up quickly. I'm happy I have a week ahead with few mobile tasks so I can recuperate. More later on some great experiences over the past months, including the celebration of my first birthday since hospitalization.
