I'm back sort of...

Just after my last posting Tigger ( Robb's orange striped cat) tripped me in the kitchen. Well... I had a choice.... either crush him or fall. I chose the latter. I fell with a huge bang and when DH came running  could not get up. Luckily the First Responders are only blocks away! They managed to get me onto a carrier, out to the EMT vehicle and off to the hospital.
I broke my femur ( thigh bone) into four pieces. The orthopedic surgeon inserted a titanium tube into the femur.
All this was complicated by by my afib and the thickness of my blood.
My insurance sent me to a rehab facility after the hospital stay where I received physical and occupational therapy..... now I am home. I still get physical therapy ( Scott is really good). The doctors say I am healing well

So with a rented hospital bed. toilet lifters, walkers and a transition chair we are coping. It would have been a lot easier if our house wasn't multi-floors.!

DH has been wonderful throughout.... constant visitor to the hospital and rehab  facility.... washed and brought clean clothes etc.  He has watched me progress and has been a great "go for" . For whatever I need or want!!

Today is my first time back at the computer!!!  Life must be getting much more normal!!
