I think I won’t be getting Kyle’s quilt done .. Not by choice either .. I was bringing laundry downstairs (basketball uniforms – tourney on Friday) when my heel slipped out from under me .. then proceeded to bounce down 6 steps on my back .. They are wooden steps .. No carpeting, cushioning nothing ..
I hit my back – the part right above your bra strap on the right side, my butt (same side) and ankle (same side) – ankle is swelling .. I can’t really see my back, but what I can see is red – not going to bother checking out my butt as it’s not hurting .. To much padding .. Both of my wrists hurt – and I can feel my back tightening up on the right side .. I’m bloody well hurting – I don’t think any ribs are broken (praise God!!) but I can’t see myself man handling kyle’s quilt now .. I’m going to try – I had just finished basting it.
Plan was to grab matthew’s quilt to block it and put erica’s is in the dryer .. Then a quick mail check then quilt .. On my way downstairs I saw the uniforms and grabbed them .. No clue what I slipped on as the carpet didn’t follow me .. But it might have caught on the top ..
Amazing thing is .. I still had the basket when I stopped
My biggest worry – hoping and praying that I’ve not wrenched my back … That is the last thing I need to deal with.
I just did a test quilt and I might be okay for tonite .. but I’m sure once tomorrow hits, I’ll be to sore to quilt. So I’ll push and do what I can .. I can feel things getting tight and sore as time passes and my right wrist is bothering me when I quilt.
Praying that I can get this done tonite as I might not be able to tomorrow ..
Reg just happened to call and he’s rather alarmed / concerned that I broke something .. I told him that it doesn’t hurt to breathe, I can turn and twist, walk, bend over-ish .. all these things I can do but not with my normal agility. So he’s not so alarmed now, but is worried. He’s been out plowing since 11am and since we’ve had freezing rain and now it’s snowing again, he’s not likely to be home anytime in the next 12 hours. So now he’s worried about me, but that’s not something that you can hide or not tell – he’d be furious if I didn’t tell when I’m hurting like this. Besides he heard it in my voice.
I’ll go as far as I can tonite and when I’m done, I’m done ..
