AlphabeThursday - F is for Fall


Well, I fell through the ceiling last week, from the attic into the bedroom.  Landed on my back, on the floor.  You read right.  It was a stupid mistake, to place my foot on the sheetrock between the beams.  I was actually looking for a water leak above in the bedroom, or what I thought was a leak.  Didn't find anything.  Not moving around much and I'm in awful pain.  Wish I had stronger pain medicine but it’s a form of codeine and is addictive.  The MRI says the injury is a compression fracture to my T12 vertebrate.  Have an outpatient procedure which injects a plaster.  In two weeks!  Have heard some about it.  Anybody else heard about it?


See what other words were chosen for the Letter F.

Oh, Deb, I am so sorry to hear this! My mom fell and did this. She was in so much pain. I understand. Praying for you!

Ouch! What a scary, painful experience. Never heard of injecting plaster (?) but I have heard of a procedure called kyphoplasty.

I'll keep you in my heart and prayers.

PS. Hope your back recovers quickly. It's miserable to have it sore, I know.

Oh my gosh. What a great post for letter "F". But so sorry your hurt. I can't imagine how hard a fall you took! Bless your heart!
I hope your better soon!

Birgit said...

OUCH! I hope you feel much better soon. And -- your fall reminded me of a scene in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. So much for over-the-top scenes in movies!

Jenny said...

Oh no!

I've done this exact same thing!

It is so violent!

I'm sorry to read about your mis-Fortune.

It's ironic that falling through plaster requires being repaired BY plaster.

Sending you a hug and many healing wishes along with your

A+++
