Not really sure how I did it...but earlier in the week my backside met up with the concrete walkway just outside of our local Tuesday Morning Store. I don't remember much about the fall except that it knocked the wind out of me and I felt pretty sick to my stomach while trying to regain my senses... I knew the fall was serious enough to where I couldn't get up on my own. The shooting pain up my back was my first clue.
I must have been making some noise (I don't remember) because a precious lady named Kathy A stopped to help me. She was able to get my Mr. AGP Man on my cell phone and my daughter as well. Then, without me even asking, she put her hands upon me and prayed.
I will never forget her kindness. She waited with me until Steve was able to get there (about 20 minutes) to take me to my doctor. After a round of hip and back x-rays I found out nothing is broken, cracked or fractured. Just a humongous bruise on my left side and more soreness and pain than I can ever remember having.
For the past two previous weeks my Miss K was with me so I had lots of things to do...errands, shopping, sprucing up of my booth and a house to clean. So...I was excited about my day and planned to get a lot done only to have everything fall flat (pun intended) at only my second stop of the morning.
After a burning shot in my hip and some pretty heavy duty medication (which I hate taking) I slept only OK. I feel like I've been in a car wreck or something even though I'm very grateful that my injuries were fairly minor. Today I'm thanking God for his protection and for KATHY A for getting involved. I've already hunted her down (thanks to my hubby remembering her last name) and plan to do something special for her as soon as I can.
Your prayers are appreciated.
Love to you...
