well, yesterday did not turn out as planned…

my grandson was coming over around nine so we could have breakfast at the “A”… then we were going to be picked up and go to St. Norbert Farmers Market… from there we were planning to stop at some grocery stores for a few goodies…

I got dressed, put on a jacket and started walking to breakfast… I just made it past the end of the street when my leg basically stopped working… it was so painful that I couldn’t put any weight on it…

I called and had my grandson pick me up from where I was… he practically had to carry me to the car… we went home, picked up my medical card and drove to Grace Hospital…

he knew just what to do… ran in, got a chair for me, and then took me right to the registration clerks…

I really appreciated this as I was not able to put any weight on it… he volunteers at St. Boniface on a regular basis…

I saw the triage nurse right away and then we waited… were moved into a room and met with a physician’s assistant who decided on an X-ray, ice and some pain meds… eventually they decided on a walker or crutches and keeping my leg elevated at home… we decided on crutches and were home by three…

then there was the entertainment of getting up the three steps and over the threshold into the house… not really that fun…

neighbours came out from both sides to see what was going on and I discovered that one was a nurse… she gave me her number in case I needed her;-)…

this was me laying on the pullout couch on the main floor with a tv going and a bag of frozen peas under my knee… a friend was by, tidied the kitchen, set me up with tea, snacks, additional pillows and a reminder to take it slow;-)…

going to be an interesting few days I think, lol…
