That sounds terrible, octorberose. Praying for an amicable outcome!

Do you not get to see your grandchildren much? I haven't seen my granddaughter in almost a year because they live so far away. I miss her dearly.

No more ladders, step stools, etc. from now on. After a while we're too old for that.

I have a friend who has fallen twice and the last time he was on a ladder against a pole and and fell about 11 feet which put him in the hospital for three months. He died in the hospital a few weeks ago at 67 years old.

I've been cleaning the roof of my house three times a year for the last 30 years. The last time, about a year ago, I was a little shaky getting back down on the ladder and said to myself that's the last time.

When we get older we can get in a state of denial about our age (pride of life?). I pray you get better. Please let us know what they say.

Well, at 66 I thought a step stool to dust a shelf was not a risky move! I just hopped up on it and wasnít careful and it slid.    I have three grandchildren near me and two that are in a different state - and those are the two I canít go fly to see now.

I don't know what protocol the Doctor will have for you. They may even suggest this, but I would highly recommend physical therapy at some point. I'll be praying.

Sorry to hear that but I know how that feels, I fell off a step stool back in early 2021.
I gave up on anything to climb on. praying all goes well.

I'm sorry I overreacted - But I'm still mad at my now dead friend. What was he thinking?

Your experience may make you extra careful next time you're on the step stool? When we get really old falls can result in a broken hip that many times result in death from being in traction for several months.

Will keep you in my prayers...my godmother broke her back sledding so I have an idea of what you will be facing; she made a good recovery but dont know how she did doing daily activies or what pain she may have lived with; she was always cheerful so hope you remain optomistic

This is daunting for sure . Iím moving very slowly - getting out of bed hurts .  But I can take a shower and sit in the  living room .  But , gratefully I am lying in bed right now without much pain .  And yes , I have pain meds. Iím praying I walk through this in faith , be a cooperative patient , and doing what I need to heal .Iím grateful for this community to help me with your prayers .

Obviously, the easier you take it the more quickly things can knit back together.  Are the grandkids old enough to more or less fend for themselves?  Might still turn into a lovely visit...I don't know.

Well, they donít want me in a plane.   And Iím waiting for the MRI and neurosurgeon so canít really leave.    Iím at a disadvantaged being in a town Iíve only lived in for a year and a half but I have friends here already who can help in the neurosurgeon search.  In a way I might be better today then yesterday so thatís interesting.    Doing everything I can to keep inflammation now.

I finally saw the neurosurgeon today after the MRI last week .  Thereís a procedure called KYROPLASTY and thatís how heís going to fix my back .  I donít even spend the night and itís not as invasive as a normal back surgery and recovery is much easier .  I found I was getting scared and emotional waiting for the doc and when he left I was just so grateful to God for this plan .  Iíll have it done next Friday.  *I appreciate the prayers and Iíll let you know how it goes .
