I took a tumble.....

Well, on Thursday, I was trying to catch my cat . I was about halfway up my basement stairs and he ran under my feet and I tumbled all the way to the bottom. The tumble didn't hurt all that much, but when I landed, I hit my head on a corner door facing. It is sharp as a knife. A knot came up just below my crown the size of a tea cup and the blood was a lot. I called my next door neighbor. He told me to call ask a nurse. I did and she said if it hadn't stopped bleeding in 20 minutes to go to the ER. Well, it had already been about 45 so I went They did a CAT scan on my head and x-rayed my lower back. Nothing was broken and no brain bleed or a concussion. I have two real nice silver staples in my head and will go back in ten days to have them removed. I'm doing O.K. but feel like I have been run over by a truck. I notice myself being more careful when I get on the stairway now. Ryan made a picture of my wound, but it's to gross to post on the internet. Maybe when it heals and if I have a "bald" spot, I will post one then....Maybe! Hope everyone's week-end has been better than mine!

Oh my goodness Clara!!! I do hope you are feeling better. I have been under the weather myself and just catching up on blog reading.

I once fell down my brother's stairs. I had on houseshoes with slick bottoms and the stairs were carpeted. My foot just slipped and down I went on my behind and slid all the way down. I had a bruise on my behind as big as a saucer.

Take care of yourself until this heals up. I'm glad you went and got checked out. Better safe than sorry.

Oh, no!!
I'm so sorry you fell and hurt your head.
It sounds awful!!
I'm glad you didn't break any bones.
I'm sure you feel sore all over from such a fall.
I bet you are bruised too.
I hope you feel all well very soon.
