Well . . . I did it again!

Posted on August 30, 2012 at 6:05 PM

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!

I hate those curbs, they are always jumping out in front of people.
Good Job Lefty for protecting Rachel's head!
I hope you aren't in much pain - Love you!

Oh, no! I am sorry this happened Rachel. I hope it doesn't undo all the work of the therapy you just completed. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Hello Rachel

What are you trying to do to yourself!!!!! I expect the guardian angel supplier has one on permanent standby just for you. LOL!!!

We are sorry to hear about the broken hand AGAIN but at least you didn't hit your head which is most fortunate. After what you have been through over the last few years we are sure a broken hand is something you are more than capable of handling (pardon the pun!!).

Lots of Love
