Well, here goes again, I've had another one of those days! Last Saturday, Bill (my DH) , fell down our 13 basement steps. I didn't know he had started down them until I heard this earthquake. He was alert and talking and screaming. I put a pillow under his head, and covered him with a blanket. He siad if I would let him lay there for a minute he would try to get up. An hour later he was telling me the same thing. I called my son home and we still couldn't get him up, so I called 911. They put a neck collar on him and put him on a board and took him to the ER. I followed in my car. There was no broken bones, but the Cat Scan showed his graft in the aorta is bulging, so I will have to take him to see his surgeon next week. He is back home now, but cannot move. I am exhausted!

Here's a picture of him getting the cat scan.

I am so sorry that this happened. I hope and pray that all goes well this week and that the surgeon gives him a good report.

Oh gosh Clara, I'm sorry to hear about Bill. With that fall he is lucky to not have broken bones. I'll certainly be thinking of you and I'll be praying for you both.

I'm sorry to hear about Bill's fall and the terrible scare it must've been, but glad that no bones were broken and that perhaps the cat scan gave early warning so he'll be around longer! Take care of yourself too.

Clara - so sorry to hear of this bad adventure. You and your DH are in my prayers.

I stopped and said a prayer for your hubby and you.
What a scare you all had!!
I'm sure he is terribly sore from the fall.
I'm glad you are following up and seeing his heart doctor. It's good to stay on top of our health.
I wish you both some good rest and a good weekend.
Take care, Clara.
