More T&C Set Up and Take Down /// Had A Nice Trip


I finished the week and had  uneventful weekend,  On Monday I worked 7 hours setting up tables and chairs, decorating the tables for the monthly Birthday Luncheon with lots of balloons.



        The special tables were for the Young A Heart Club, those that are 90 or older.

In the afternoon I took Angel  dog park.

We still had to take down tables and chairs from the luncheon and set them up for Coffee and Donut for Tuesday morning.

Then there was Tuesday!!!!!!!!    I was on my way to the clubhouse and -------------------------


Yep,” I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”,   I tripped on some uneven pavement and fell with enough force on my left shoulder to separate the long part of the bone from the round part of the bone,  Fortunately it was only a few minutes before someone came to help,  Toni, an retired RN kept me stable until the paramedics got there,  I was taken by ambulance to ER,  I called my daughters that live here in the valley and they both came to keep me company and wait to see what the prognosis was,

Now for the     TMI.    If you don’t want the gory details you can stop reading.

The bone is a full inch away from where it should be.  I couldn’t have done a better job of breaking the Humerus if I tried. 

They waited for the orthopedic doctor to look at the x-rays.  The decision was made to keep me overnight and that night I would have to have surgery.


That’s a titanium rod and screws holding the bone together and the incision is glued together so that I can shower. 

I’m doing fairly well considering.

Thanks for visiting
