  • my turn to moan

    I had a nasty fall fri, am nursing a "clinically" fx left elbow (xray doesn't show it yet), a bad knee and sore nose. Typing has become a challenge, my rt hand won't work well alone. at least I'm rt handed and I have my pain pills - I only need the big ones for sleep. I'm still reading if not posting much. Linda

    OH Ouch Linda,

    I am so sorry for you and relate to your pain. I still have the plates and screws as a result of my fall 18 years ago.

    You just read and rest that arm and take the time necessary to let it heal well. You have my thoughts, prayers and empathy for what you have to deal with.

    Keep your chin up and let everyone wait on you for a change.
