Twinkletoes strikes again!

Source

Got back from seeing the doctor about my left ankle and arm - now on crutches, metal boot, orders to stay off of it for a tad longer and may get physical therapy on my arm once it's not so sore. Feels like a charlie horse in my bicep all time. No fractures, no stitching but on a good note, my sister wants to learn how to stitch! Yea!
Cept I may have developed glaucoma or a cataract in my right eye - find out next week. At least I was still able to thread a needle with a very small eye earlier today in dimmer light with 2 strands of sewing thread - so that's good : ) Hope for me yet!

O.k. so this isn't exactly what happened....

But it feels like it! I've been having iron infusions now - 2 of 8 so far - and I feel wonky wobbly for a couple of days afterwards. One of the problems with being anemic is that one will also feel extra cold at times - usually in my feet. Earlier this morning, I decided to lay back down for a bit of a rest, covered my feet with a lap afghan, and promptly went to sleep.

I woke up about an hour later and needed to spend a penny/visit the little girl's room, which just happens to be located about 7 feet from my bed - I have to walk past 2 closets to get to it - I took about 3 steps and my left foot was unbeknownst to me, half asleep (didn't feel any numbness or tingling). It crumpled under me and my shoulder and arm hit the door frame and closet door when I tried to catch myself from falling.

I now have a bummed up ankle (not too bad considering) and 2 scratches on my left arm - one of which is very long and bruising up quite nicely. My shoulder also is a tad achy at times.

Basically, I feel like this lady probably did once the picture was taken!

Therefore, my stitching and sewing post will have to wait a bit until I can move more gracefully again without going tush over teakettle!
