Hello everyone. Just wanted to let you know I am still here. I am sorry if I worried anyone by my sudden disappearance. I had an accident and was in hospital for 2 weeks. I fell off a wall (6 foot drop.) The reason I fell off the wall was that it was crumbling and I didn’t realise. I got lots of scrapes and bumps from the fall but the real damage was done when I landed on a piece of sandstone sticking up like a spear that had fallen off the crumbling wall.
The sandstone pierced through my right shin right down to the bone. It was like a scene from a horror movie. I landed on the ground on my right side all disoriented, thinking: ‘Oh great, I’ve got concussion’ and when I straightened myself up saw the sandstone sticking out of my leg and nearly fainted.
Then an unbelievable and very grisly thing happened – I pulled the sandstone out of my leg and walked home. I think I was in shock because I felt no pain at all.
My husband took me to the ER and I thought they’d just be able to stitch my leg up but it was so deep they needed to operate and do a skin graft. I was in hospital for 12 days. Boy, do I have some stories to tell you.
The good news is I am home now and in about a month will be completely healed. I will have no permanent damage but will have a permanent indentation in my leg. A small price to pay I think – I could have landed on my head.
Anyway, I am sorry if I worried any of you. My son left a comment on Twitter and tried to follow it up here but in my addled state I couldn’t remember my password and he couldn’t find the book I have all the passwords written in.
Hope you have all been well. I have missed you and look forward to catching up with you soon.
