This past Thursday night, I went down to our basement to get some sheets from the dryer. I fell off the old kitchen chair I keep down there to set clothes baskets on. I leaned back and the chair's left  back leg came off the raised concrete platform. I was thrown to my left, I twisted my back,brushed my side against the end of a sawhorse we have down there.  All I could think was."I don't want to hit my  head." When I landed,I was on my hands and knees.

I  am sore on the left side of my back and have experienced muscle spasms on the left side of my front. When I cough or laugh, it is not fun. I also had to ask a friend from church, "Please don't make me laugh."

I chose not to go to the ER Thursday night because I didn't know how I  could get there. The pain in the back is not as bad as it was. I am using a walker to get around the house--to the kitchen and to the bathroom.

Hubby redid our rock garden in front of our house. I did take the walker out to see it. This was what he wanted to do for Mother's Day. He worked on it for five days and he.also, is stoved up. Son came in early this afternoon. I don't know if we are going to make it to church in the morning. I depends on how I feel.

I don't really know how long I will be unplugged. I intend to see my doctor on Monday.

I wish to  extend Mother's Day greetings to all my friends who  are mothers, stepmothers, or menotors to children. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!


  1. Hi Cecelia! Happy Mother's Day to you!!
    I hope you are feeling better today? Backs are tricky things. Be sure to rest and ice if that helps, I'm sure there's swelling. I'm so glad you didn't hit your head! God is good. Stay as unplugged as you need to be...your health comes first!
    Prayer coming to you,

    1. Thank you, Ceil. I am getting in to see the NP in about two hours. Sunday morning was a memorable one for us. Short version is it took three grown men to get me up from a lying position. Hubby, our son and our next door neighbor. I am thankful for each of them.

  2. Ouch and owie. I am so sorry you are hurt. Not a fun way to spend Mother's Day. So thankful that you didn't hit your head or have any serious injuries...but the soreness and stiffness and pain are bad enough. Praying for you. I hope your family is taking good care of you. May the Lord strengthen you in the days of healing ahead. Rest and recuperate and take time to let Jesus bring comfort and healing and peace.

    1. Thank you, Pam. for your kind words and your supportive thoughts.

  3. Hope you're feeling better already Cecelia. Glad to read your mother's day was special :)


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
