Because all that read my sharing are family and special online family
I need to share with everyone.

Doctor visit made earlier today and told just will take time for this container to heal.
Brused shoulders, hips, knees, neck and face.
At the moment concerned about slight difference in eyesight
and will have this checked out on Monday.
Cataract surgery months ago and vision perfect, still good
but small print a problem has surfaced and that is also fine but is new condition
and these are implants in my  eyes.

Balance has been not perfect for a few years but worse over last
2 years.  Therapist told me yesterday that since I have a permanent
hearing problem on right side and right ankle that was not set years ago
as I thought it was a sprain - that my right side is weak.  Have never
been told this before.

She is going to help me for a month with balance and eye exercises and
told this will help.   Sure hope so.

Always one to take care of herself with diet, exercise, weight and no serious
conditions of any kind over the years  - was told this sure was a big help in me not breaking anything.
Especially since I have been on prednisone on and off for 2 years for inflammation problem.

I will continue doing all I have been doing at a slower pace,
have some occasional help - as I have been doing a lot probably should not have been doing.
Do not share everything :)  All my life just thought I could do anything....

I will be forever thankful that I did not break a bone.

No more health sharing

I will be careful, continue to enjoy My Woodhaven
one day at a time
and I will heal....

So glad you shared this today. Nice to hear that you have some help with things that are too much for you to handle. I guess we all need to take things "one day at a time"
Hope you have a nice weekend and keep that mantra...."I will heal."

Great news my friend.

However I am intrigued by "I do no share everything" and my fine and flying imagination took over. Well, good for you Ernestine, I thought. Good. For. You.

You can share your health issues anytime--we don't mind because we are all very much in love with you and worry. The inner ear problems can cause balance issues--as we age, the liquid in the inner ear, that acts just like a bubble in a level, tends to dry up and that is what causes the equilibrium problems. So says, Dr. Judy!! I only have balance problems in the dark--I have a hard time getting my bearings! So we all will go at things a bit slower, as we age, but---it's all good!!
