To date, I have avoided “major injury” falling. Although, there is an indention of my head in the living room; I have ruined a box of pictures and found myself stuck, without help, in the middle of a box of shattered glass and a broken picture frames; I have gone head over heels when I fell in the recliner; I’ve fallen from the top step in the garage backwards flat on my back; and I only have 2-3 throw rugs left in the house because I trip on them, causing twisted knees, sore elbows and shoulders. We have done our best to fall proof the house, but it still happens. I’ll find out tomorrow. At this point, the injuries have been a mild concussion; torn meniscus in my left knee; stitches in my left elbow; and whatever the doctor says I have done to my left knee this time. The radiologist the performed the MRI, told me my left knee is bone on bone. It will be interesting to see what the doctor has to say. If a new knee is worth it, should I do it? All these questions, I’ll have to wait for answers.
