Falling while walking

I've had time to get over it now, but it was quite traumatic last Friday to fall down while walking.

It was early morning and I was walking to our condo from our motor home parked in a nearby lot. On one ordinary step, I twisted my left ankle. On the next step it gave way and I fell!

A perfect three point landing: left knee, right hand, and chin.

Got some road rash in all three places and tore out the left knee of my favorite jeans. So, I got a free pair of cutoffs out of the deal.

Everything is mostly healed by now, and the ankle was undamaged by it all.

Strange though, to fall while walking.

I am so sorry. You looked fine on Sunday...I didn't notice any road rash on your face. Please don't make a habit of falling while walking, though. That is not a fun thing to do.

Thanks Myrna, for these kind words. I am making a habit of walking very carefully.
