I’m taking a rare moment of lucidity to tell you I’ll be out of commission for a while because I have a concussion. I had a little accident while cooking in the kitchen early Thursday afternoon. I slipped on a wet spot on the floor, my legs flew out from under me, and I cracked the back of my head on the ceramic tile floor. I lost consciousness momentarily but was was able to get up and call 911, who transported me to the hospital. I think I had about 8 firemen and paramedics taking care of me- they were all so nice. I was so embarrassed, but I knew a head injury could be dangerous, so I let them take me to the hospital.
I spent most of the evening there until I was released about 9 p.m. All I’ve done since being home is sleep, partly due to the pain meds I’m taking. I got up this morning, looked in the mirror and said I HAVE to have a shower! I feel much better today, but I’m still quite dizzy. Not to mention that every part of me aches!
It took me back to my college days when I got so stinkin’ drunk my head spun around and around like a merry-go-round! Only this time, it hasn’t gone away after a good night’s sleep. So I think I’ll be spending the rest of the day reclining in a chair in the sunroom. Susie Q is going to bring me lunch later today. It hurts my head to read, so as soon as I finish this post, I’m going back to lie down. Just wanted to let you know why you won’t hear from me for a while. I hope to be back to visit all of you very soon.
