I went on my own to my sister's daughter's house for Easter. As I thought I should never of went, got hurt leaving. She has a long porch with stairs that are 3 ft apart. She is talking to me as I'm leaving watching where the steps are...well the last step is curved and goes downhill and you cant see it.

Yep, I did it..lost my footing and fell into these huge bushes..then rolled off them , more like flew off them...lol...on my left side hit fist the rolled down the driveway until I came to a halt..

Glad they were there to help me, I couldn't move..hit my head , arm and ribs....feel like crap

Easter wasn't worth that trip...hurting like hell.

But my sister gave me a belated B-Day gift..a pretty short zippered robe, in black. And then a beautiful blue sweater...so pretty to wear for Spring..its a zip up one....so I guess not all was bad..until I lick my wounds and heal..LOL..my nephew had to pick me up..I not able to move..the driveway is on a steep slant...He picked me up like ..so easy...must have lost some more weight...LOL,,....My sis is mad though because she said I look anemic , Have to wait for ins. or maybe go to the cheap clinic...and swallow my pride...hate getting hurt...

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL

Thank you...Yes I got home safely..shaky though...I'm so swelled up on my ribs on the left side...and my left arm really got it good..bruised and sore...

Thank you for caring....What a crazy day...

Love and hugs...I'm going to bed early...yea , think thats a good idea...LOL..I feel so stupid, but so many have fallen off that porch, they need to reconstruct it somehow...

Wish I had ins. My left side of head was hit hard and its tingling ...strange...

Happy Easter...

Big HUGS

Hope to be up in about 7 hours...and not be hurting so much. I like cold for swelling and pain...not hot or even warm...I feel dumb...LOL
