Yesterday, I had just gotten my hair done and was looking pretty good. As I was walking towards the Kohl's department store, admiring my new hairdo in the store's front window, suddenly, a curb came out of nowhere and down I went; breaking my left hand in two places. Yes, it's the same hand I broke in a fall just six months earlier. I was told that my head was only inches from the pavement when suddenly I jerked it up. You don't suppose that maybe, the ten week "constraint induced therapy" that I just completed for my left arm, improved my strength just enough to catch myself before hitting my head? Or was it my guardian angel? Or maybe a combination of both. Either way, I'm very thankful that it's only broken bones and not another brain injury. Poor lefty seems to be taking the brunt of it all to protect my head. . . thank you lefty! I need to start taking better care of her! I realize that things like this happen to everyone, but sometimes it doesn't always feel that way! I'll just have to regroup, refocus and keep moving forward!
