I had all kinds of plans for things I was going to be doing this month. You know the saying about plans? “Life is what happens while you’re busy making plans” Yeah that one. I fell, tripped on the bedspread in the dark, hit the metal poster bed with my lumbar osteoporotic (did I just make up a word? osteoporosis in is what I mean, but you probably figured that out) lumbar spine before hitting the wall and ultimately the floor. I won’t bother you with the EMT and ER story or what’s happened in the frustrating time between then, June 4, and now. I’ll just say I have a compression fracture and as I was told many years ago they really do have a pain all their own. I see the spinal orthopedic surgeon Thursday of next week. So sick of chronic and acute pain and poor health in general. Sorry for the gloom, but that’s where I am and why I haven’t posted at all. Now I can sit long enough and I’ve figured how to manage the pain well enough to do this much.
