I qualify for that tv show, Hoarders! Oh the shame! So, any-hoo, I rented a dumpster( A Quick Dump, LOL)to rid my house and garage of all clutter, misguided purchases and disgusting junk.
So on one of my trips to the dumpster, there was a large patch of ice that was easy to miss because my driveway is black asphalt. , You know what happens next, right? Feet straight up, head down and crack! I had a friend who was on her way over to help with the decluttering and she called the Rescue Squad. I was in Intensive Care for two days and then they moved me to a private room. I fractured my skull, had a 2 inch laceration on my scalp, which was stapled shut WITHOUT NUMBING IT FIRST!!!
I saw so many Dr.s and interns over those three days and have quite a few follow up appointments to deal with the aftermath. I have "fluids" surrounding my left eardrum, I have lost my sense of taste and smell. The good news is, I will be fine in a month or so. Dr. said no driving for 6 weeks and I almost fainted! I have severe balance and dizzy spells but am taking lots of RX's to combat those issues.
The silver lining here is this, my fellow art teachers have compiled some quick and easy sub plans and have delivered them to my three schools.I feel truly blessed with the outpouring of support from family, friends and co-workers. Please, bloggy friends, be careful out there on the ice! Don't end up like me. I am staying at my Mom's house until I get my sea legs back. With her cooking and baking, I will soon be fluffier than I already am!!
