And over a fall…
Ok it was a really bad fall.
I was in the shower getting cleaned up and ready to go to the family Christmas party. Hair washed and body clean. All I needed was the razor. It was sitting beside the sink, well out of my reach. I opened the sliding glass door that encloses the bath, put one foot out of the tub and reached. When I had the razor in hand I put my weight on the foot still in the tub to just step right back in.
This is something I have done almost every time I have showered in this new house. 50 times? A Hundred times? Who knows. I haven’t counted how many showers I have taken here. And all without any accidents.
I put my weight on that foot still in the tub, on a very slippery surface. My foot slipped out from under me and I fell backwards. The back of my leg hit the railing that hold the glass in place. Pain. OH MY GOD. No that is not a curse. That was my prayer. GoD HElP me. I stood there after I got my balance, dizzy, nauseated and shaking with pain so intense I thought I was going to pass out.
Is that what child birth feels like? I can’t remember childbirth but I know I didn't cry. Yesterday, tears leaked from my eyes. It hurt too bad to bawl like a baby. I called Mina because Dragon was at work. Razor forgotten, she helped me out of the shower and stayed with me until the dizziness passed and I could get dressed.
Today I have a spectacular bruise across the back of my thigh. About football sized and swollen. Needless to say, I am using my walking stick. Ice packs, heating pads and Nsaids are my friends.
Now as for being grounded? I asked about my Sunday spanking. After all I need my reward! I behaved at the Christmas party even being in pain I behaved!
Until my leg is completely healed.
Dragon says he has to keep me safe. Especially when I seem to be on a self-destructive streak. I think I will ask for a box of chocolates instead. I think it is a good trade. (Dragon just laughed at me. What a jackalope.)
