Just as I'm recovering from pneumonia, and starting to feel half-human again, life throws me another surprise!
Thursday evening I started coughing so hard, it felt like I was going to vomit. So I headed to the bathroom on the run. Somehow I slipped and fell hard, across the wooden threshold between 2 tile floors. The wind was knocked out of me and I couldn't get up without help. To make a long story short, we called our neighbor who has been an ER nurse for over 30 years. She came over and determined that I'd probably cracked a rib or 2. She checked me out pretty thoroughly, and told me what to watch. So since Thursday night, life has been a bit more difficult. I had to take a day off from work on Friday, and I spent 2 nights propped up in a chair since I couldn't lay down comfortably. Last night I managed to sleep in bed albeit fitfully. Tomorrow I will go back to school, but definitely take it easy.
