My Fear is I’ll Fall in the Shower

My Fear is I’ll Fall in the Shower (2016)
Ashley Lily Scarlett

I needn’t have worried. I didn’t fall in the shower. I slipped on the wet kitchen floor (I’d just knocked over Bella’s water bowl) as I was trying to put a 5kg bag of rice in the top kitchen cupboard. I landed bang smack on my right knee and broke the patella. Hi ho. It’s not too bad. I can put weight on it but have to keep it straight so I have a fabric brace on my leg. It’s a bit sore today because, in the night, it slipped right down my leg.

    Oh, sorry, Ashley, that you hurt yourself. Please take care. You can get a handle bar for the shower. I poopooed it when my husband put one in but now I have to use it. Hope you heal quickly. xxellen

    I’m having trouble figuring out whether your fabric brace slipped down your leg or if it was your patella. I hope not the latter! I’m recuperating from hip replacement surgery, so we can be sore together. šŸ˜Æ

      I thought she was indicating that the fabric brace was sore that it lost the race with the patella. Mind you, my brain is fuzzy, at first I read Ashley’s account and momentarily thought she broke her spatula.

      Hope you are okay Ashley. šŸ™‚ Stay well.

      BTW Are getting the Vodafone reality gizmo ?

        Hahaha! I’m ok, Joseph, I can hobble about at home so I can feed Bella and myself and I have angels at the ready if it gets to be too much for me. I like to be independent but I’m quite willing to have help if need be. Today I’ve just been resting.
        Yeah, end of the month I get the VVR (sic) thing. I expect it will be a very low quality one as it was offered as a sweetener in the deal. ā˜ŗ

        Yes, I second that thank goodness. !!! My husband was allowed to stop wearing the brace just yesterday. He still has months of therapy and regaining strength. Recovery takes a year. But he is walking pretty well now. I’ll be thinking of you šŸ˜»
