I’ve lived most of my life healthy, strong and I’m more on the athletic side then I am sedentary. Last Tuesday morning BB called and said mom I can’t walk. So I drove over there my way to work when in and I said what do you mean you can’t walk I said her walker up on the walker tried to get up and fell in the floor. Well my mom reaction was to get her up so I wrapped my arms around her to lifted her, at least that was my intention and we both heard a loud pop, my back, we both fell in he floor. BB was hysterical she called 911 and said help I broke my mom. The fire department got there and asked who fell and BB told what happened.
I was in shock because we just got a diagnoses from the Mayo of sarcoidosis and I was still shocked from that, but it turns out that her not being able to walk is from this disease, along with the blindness in her right eye, the non stop kidney infections, the pneumonia. I could go on and on.
So I broke my L3 vertebrae, painful is not the word for it. I think I’ve been in a state of shock over all that’s gone on with BB and now this. This broken L3 stopped me literally. I told the doctor I don’t have time for a broken back he said well if you want to heal you need to lay flat for a week. Wow! So shocking to me. My entire life stopped. Just lifting my head is an accomplishment today. Yay! I don’t even know what to say I think I just wanted to share this today. That’s all . 😳🙃
