Because you are all so close to me
will share yesterday and now today
something I do not want to share
just no lengthy responses
have some help taking me where I need to go
miss family
but no one near
and Christmas in a few days
will see them at that time

trying to stay more quiet
and difficult for me with my routine of busyness

and maybe I should not share
but will

Putting my boots on Sunday night to shut screen door porch
which I keep open in the day for Callie

I fell
flat on my face

Waiting for test results
no pain
nothing broken
just feel like someone picked me up and dropped me

results, nothing unusual
just huge knot on head
now draining

trying to stay quiet and almost impossible:)

((((((Dear, dear Ernestins)))))) May you feel God's healing power, love, and peace at this time. Your photos bring tears and I wish I lived closer. Try not to stress.

I love you and am praying for you ~ FlowerLady

OMG. Tears for you. Glad nothing broken or concussed. you will heal. How brave you are.
Big big hugs.

Not the best way to start the Holidays! Wishing you quick healing and happier days to come!

Sandra said...

I was about to come your way to wish you a very Happy Christmas, but now it's to wish you a rapid recovery from your fall. Unexpected things happen and I recently slipped on a big plastic bag and fractured my wrist, so I shall have a plaster cast over Christmas!
May your family bring you laughter, love and joy at this Christmas period.

Rebecca said...

Oh, no! I've had a couple of humbling (and painful) episodes last week (including a broken tooth and turned ankle). Glad you are not in pain and that nothing is broken! We WILL survive.

Marcie said...

Oh dear. I'm sending love and healing energy. I know it will lift your spirit and heart to see family at the holidays.

Judy said...

Good Grief Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!
One bright note, at least you didn't break a wrist trying to catch yourself!!!

Pienosole said...

I too am glad you're not in pain and nothing is broken. Still, it's a bummer. May you heal quickly!

Mitzi said...

Oh my dear! Your certainly did not need this now. Keep your spirits up!

lil red hen said...

I'm so sorry about this, Ernestine! I'm sure your family will help to make you feel better. Take care, and Merry Christmas!!

Judi said...

Healing thoughts sent your way. When we fall, it is such a jolt to our bodies. Be kind to yourself while you heal.

Anne Bee said...

I agree with Judy - its very good news that you didn't break anything falling so hard. You must have strong bones. xxx

MsGraysra said...

Oh, my dear, Ernestine, what a shock that must be to your whole body and soul. So relieved to hear that nothing is broken. How quickly things happen like that! I hope you were able to get help right away. Scary. Soothing thoughts for you and may you be able to rest as recommended.

Val said...

I wish I could be there to bake for you and bring you some good, hearty meals. You have taken such great care of yourself over the years, I'm actually not surprised you didn't break anything. REST!

(Gentle) Hugs as you recover,

Val ♥

Ouch!!! I am glad it looks worse than it evidently was. I hope you are well on your way to healing now. It's happening all around me and I have narrow escapes myself. My friend in London has been referred to a `Fall' clinic after she broke several bones. Enjoy the warmth of family at Christmas and let's look forward to the new year and spring blossoms. Your photos always bring spring to me.

Oh my dear, so wish I was there to fetch and carry and make tea. I am glad nothing was broken, but you must be very gentle with yourself.
