I Need a Little R & R

So, my daughter that lives with me will be spending a week at Lake Norman, NC. W e will join my other daughter and her husband, a granddaughter and her family and a grandson and his family. I plan to remain busy doing absolutely nothing.

These old legs of mine don't seem to support me at the level I prefer and falling is the bane of us senior citizens. Yesterday was our regular garbage pick-up day. I was attempting tp put a heavy laden bag of garbage in the curb-side container and somehow got tangled up. I fell backwards but fortunately. did not hit my head. I couldn't get up and tried to call to my daughter but knew she could not hear me. I took out my car keys and blew the horn and she knew I needed something. She couldn't get me up so we called my next door neighbor. They managed to get me in a chair and discovered I had a bloody area on each arm and my shoulder was hurting. My daughter called my doctor and they said to bring the old goat to the office. Today I am sore but believe I will survive.

It stinks, but the older you get the worse the vestibular system becomes due to lack of lymph.

Both of my parents have issues with falling. Scares me to death

Take care of yourself. We need your wisdom around here. Praying for you.

Some commenters use italics to indicate sarcasm, while others prefer the traditional ending of /s. Others eschew any indication of sarcasm as a dilution of wit. Before down voting somebody, ask yourself, "Could this be sarcasm?"

Glad you are O.K. Joe. Let the others do the heavy lifting. You have done enough of that. Go back to doing absolutely nothing.

Joe, you’ve inspired me in many ways for the last few years and Moab is right. The longer you are with us the better we all are. So BE more careFUL! Take care sir!

I have family that live in Troutman on Lake Norman too. I will be praying for you to have a quick & full recovery.

My Father-n-Law climbed a 8 foot ladder with bug spray hooked to a long tube & stick to kill ants on the second floor & fell off backwards at 92... lol he recovered but I have no idea what possessed him to do that.

He laughed about it & after 2 weeks in intensive care he came home ready to go a month latter....

He would take off to go fishing in Florida in the middle of the day for no reason & wouldn’t tell a soul...lol loved his independence but it was shocking sometimes when he was just missing...lol

better soon - falls are very dangerous- my mother who turned 93 today fell a couple of months ago and when the ER doc saw nothing on X-rays asked her to take a few steps forward and a few backward & then asked if it hurt- she lied & said it didn’t so she could go back home- the doctor would have ordered a CT scan if she had been truthful- couple of days later her pain was so bad she went back to the hospital & scan showed a fracture that was likely worse by then and needed a hip replacement - doing better now

Joe, get well and take it easy. I’ll drive up and take your trash out if need be! Want to keep our Clemson treasure round here as long as the good Lord deems it so.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Mr Joe. I live in the LKN area and every time my dad, who is also a veteran, comes to visit he has to go to Richard's coffee shop in downtown Mooresville. It's also a military museum and every Saturday morning you can find a group of vets gathered around telling old war stories. You have to get your daughter to bring you by; I'm sure they'd love to hear some of the stories you've shared here with us.

Take care Joe21 so many people care about you. You are a treasure to T-Net and many more. Maybe work on that book you're writing. Still waiting to purchase my copy.

I tell my almost 92 year old parents to please be careful. The independent life they currently live can change completely if either of them have a damaging fall.
I'm glad you're ok Joe, but please be careful. Happy Father's Day!!!
