… The car won. A man, making a left turn into the lane I was walking across, grazed me with the fender of his car and knocked me to the street. Nothing broke, thankfully, but I’ve been hobbling around the house with increasingly less pain over the last four days and can now slowly walk about the house holding onto my walking stick and a wooden kitchen chair without pain or pain medication. Last night, I slept in my bed instead of the overstuffed chair in the living room whereI’d been ensconced in between hobbling to the kitchen and bath for three days. That was glorious. Today I made it into the armless desk chair and up again for the first time, so I thought I’d better leave my friends and readers a short note to let you know why I’ve been absent from the blog and that I’ll be back full press next week.
