I can sympathise Pat, remember last year I tripped up the hospital steps and dislocated my shoulder, that still gives me trouble with a constant ache.
You, Sandra and me are typical examples of older people needing to take more care, but how?
I am trying to take more notice of standing up slower than normal,
donīt suddenly spin round to see what behind you,
whatchamacallit's rabbles like a hawk. (Oohah, something has gone radically wrong with my keyboard now) that should say watch cables like a hawk.
Make Motley move if he is where I need to walk and a few more things I need to be aware of.
Not standing on anything except a stool to reach up in a cupboard and making sure I have something to hold on to while I do it.
I occasionally have an inner ear problem which makes me dizzy when I turn my heard or look up, then I have to be really carful, I have an exercise that rids me of that in a couple of days.
From one oldie to a not so oldie, take care.
Hope you will soon be on the mend.
We learn something new every day.
