The Best Laid Plans

We were supposed to be going to New York City for Thanksgiving, but the Tuesday before the holiday I took a tumble while we were out walking.  Stepped on a stick that rolled and took me with it.  Hurt both arms, banged my head, a laceration on my right thumb.  Mac and another gentleman helped me up and because of hitting my head it was decided that I should go to our local Urgent Care.  They were wonderful, got me right in, looked at my head, x-rayed my left arm and said there was no breaks, but I wretched both wrists and elbows and everything in between.  My right arm is mostly back to normal, but my left, the one that took the brunt of the fall, is going to take a while.
In addition to that Mac and I are both having a massive allergy attacks and are coughing our heads off.
So the decision was made to postpone the trip till after the first of the year.  Instead we had a very quiet Thanksgiving at home.
This is the first day that I've felt like typing more than a word or two.
Hoping to feel better soon so we can get a Christmas tree.  I'm the decorator and I'm not capable of that yet.

  15. Ick with the fall and the subsequent injuries and loss of ability to function 2 handed. I tripped yesterday taking a load out to the recycle bin. It was dark and a brick that I hadn't anticipated to be there was there and took a tumble. I was thankful nothing broke, but I can feel the bruises on the knees and the hands. Take care of yourself and I hope you heal very quickly from this point forward.
