Och! That hurt

I am usually not a klutz but proved myself wrong Sunday night. While bathing one of my little dogs, and usually as soon as it is bathtime all the dogs go hide, I turned to make the few steps to the grooming table and Coop had quietly come in behind me and laid down,, and I tripped over him. Down I went-HARD, trying not to fall on my wet dog and thankfully I twisted so I took the fall, and she was fine,,but I wasn't. Went yesterday to the ER and 6 hours later, I have broken a bone in my pelvis. Thank the Lord it is just broken, but not in pieces, so they don't believe surgery will be needed. Ouch! Feel so embarassed and stupid for falling like this. Now on crutches and missing a few days at work. Am to go to a specialist next week for followup. Thank God my sweet Hubby and oldest daugher have jumped in to do housework and care for the dogs while I have been down flat on the couch - how embarrassing but how grateful I am to have help.

So sad because for Christmas we go to my little sisters house about 6 hours away and just don't think I am going to be able to manage that. Really a bummer but I am lucky that surgery will not be needed and so glad that little Pippi wasn't squashed in the fall. That was all I could think of as I fell. Again, what a bummer.

I'm so sorry about your injury and missing Christmas at sister's house. Thank goodness you don't need surgery and your pups are okay! I wish you a speedy recovery.

Oh Deb I'm so sorry to read this! So glad you don't need surgery. I did the same thing awhile back and fell over Bentley, like you I was more afraid of landing on him. My hip was sore for a very long time.
Such a terrible time for this to happen, since you can't go to your sister's I hope your DH and DD can still make Christmas merry for you at home.
Please stay down and take care of yourself. Sending {{{Hugs}}}

Bummer....but I'm glad it wasn't more serious, surgery would have been a real bummer! And as you've pointed out you've got someone to help you and the dogs out so those bases are covered. Please try and take it easy on yourself...these dogs of ours can show up where we least expect them to be at times. Sending healing thoughts your way...

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

I have to practice falling gracefully, like a lady could, cause when I landed and dazed a bit, all I could think of was laughing cause I looked like a clown (arms and legs all everwhichway). I am sure my DH wondered what was going on, but so hard to fall and not look like a goof. Dogs couldn't understand why Mom was on the floor and I even got a kiss or two by someone before I could get up. But so embarassing.

Deb, I'm just reading this and I'm so sorry this happened to you! Wow, I'm incredibly relieved you didn't break your hip, and I really hope you can heal quickly. I sure wish we lived closer so I could come help a bit and bring you some puppy breath from little Yoginator.

Would love the kisses from Yogi! Really have to get back into work, but know that sitting will be a pain, so going to do what I can and then limp home. Wonder if I can put Christmas lights on my crutches? I too feel blessed I didn't do more damage and will heal fine. Christmas is just a bad time to be down (but not out). Gonna have to think of some fun things to do to make the season merry.

Thanks everyone for letting me vent a bit. Just needed friends to whine with me, but want the season to be cheerful anyway, just have to make a few zig-zags to original plans.

You've sure got the right attitude. Being able to tease & kid about your fall I think is the very best approach. More healing thoughts on the way!
