It Was Funny at the Time,


Yes, so we all thought.  I was visiting my brother and sister-in-law along with my sisters a week ago .  I pulled up a chair and was talking to Wendy, when suddenly, the chair leg gave way and I went down to the floor, on my side. (Thank-you my friends for allowing me to feel comfortable enough to share this humiliation!)  Of course there were cameras handy to catch this moment, and as one who falls often, if there is a chance to capture my tumbles those chances are taken.  We were all laughing, after all I thought I wasn't hurt, and frankly, it was funny how it happened. One minute your sitting there in the middle of a conversation, and the next your on the floor.  Well, to make a long story short, for the past week the pain was getting progressively worse, so I went to the dr.  I had an x-ray done today to determine if there is a fracture in my shoulder, almost passed out and was in tears by the time I was done. I'm on drugs for swelling and pain.  I had to cancel our trip to Pat Winters embroidery class because I am totally unable to drive, I can't use my arm so I can't do any of my crafts, which is killing me. The pain is more than I can bear, and I'm going out of my mind.  Right now, my pain medication has kicked in enough that I can be on the computer for a few minutes, so am letting you know that I'm not ignoring any of you, it's just extremely uncomfortable to sit in this chair as it aggravates my shoulder and arm.  Please pray for me, I can't take this much longer!

Oh Laurie, you poor dear! It made me hurt just to see the photo. Events like this, that seem funny and benign at the time, sometimes, as you've sadly found out, are nothing but. I do hope your shoulder gets better and soon, and I will pray for relief from the pain. Take it easy while you heal my friend.

Good grief Laurie, I'm so sorry, Maybe the doctor can give you something stronger. I wondered why you haven't been posting and have missed you. I will join Jayne in praying for the pain.

Is it dislocated or what? Glad no fracture ..just let the pain meds work rest and do not worry over being on PC...

Oh my goodness - I am sooo sorry this has happened to you - it's sometimes much later that we feel the full extent...please know I'm sending up a prayer for you!

Oh pumpkin I too am sorry to hear of this pain. Certainly prayers are on there way. Honey it's not easy to type one handed but it gives you a break from just laying around. You just need stronger pain pills! Even if ya don't like them it helps us to get comfortable and be able to relax and sleep! Which is what you need in order to get better. Call the doctor and ask for stronger meds right away. Take care I will be thinking of you always. Peace
