Humpty Dumpty

 
 
Without warning and just like  the nursery rhyme character Humpty Dumpty........ I had a great fall.
Passed-out cold, landed on my back and broke my ankle in three places.
I've spent the better part of this month in a hospital and now a rehab facility not too far from home, trying to rejoin the land of the living.
To say I was taken by surprise, is an understatement.
My dearest has delivered my computer, so I'm thankful to be able to catch up on all of my favorite blogs.
I hope your days have been far less eventful.

Glad you are okay! Was wondering what happened.

Oh Jo, I am so sorry to hear it. What a terrible thing and such a long recuperation. Wasn't your foot hurt before? How did you pass out? Or why? I don't mean to be nosy, just feel like we've been friends for so long. I remember seeing Oliver your last post. Well, I hope all good things are coming your way soon dear one. It's almost time to start gardening. Better tell Sarge to build some raised beds.

So sorry to hear this. Hope you recover successfully and get back to normal.

Denise inVA said...

How awful for you Jo, I am so sorry to hear this. It sounds like it has been a long, hard road. Speedy healing from here on!

Barbara Anne said...

Dearie me and bless your heart and ankle! I'd been concerned about you since your Sunshine post said nothing about an upcoming absence so am glad to hear your on the mend from your misadventure.

Be sure the doctors figure out why you passed out in the first place, be it blood pressure too low, blood sugar too low, a medicine or dosage that didn't agree with you or some other reason (can you tell I'm a nurse?!). Ask questions if they haven't explored the reason for that or told you why it happened.

Happy healing!

I am sending you a million healing magic bubbles to heal your ankle!

Oh Jo, what a nuisance, to put it mildly.
I hope you're on the mend and will be back home again soon.
Take care.

rebecca said...

These are the kind of "surprises" we'd rather do without! A couple of weeks ago, I had a less serious one. No bones broken, but a slip-in-the-shower type that left me bruised and very sore.

The computer and a few good books have definitely been my friend. Thinking of you as you adapt and push yourself in rehab...

DJan said...

OH, how awful! I wondered where you were, but I never suspected this. Get well and heal up, dear Jo! :-)

Jo@awholeplotoflove said...

Oh poor you, I;m sorry to hear of your fall. I hope you are doing much better now xx

kdduncan said...

Sorry to hear you took a fall. Glad to hear you are on the mend.

bayou said...

Oh dear, I already wondered why you were suddenly silent.
Hope you have good healing flesh/bones and recover quickly. What a nightmare, 3 times! Good that somebody else opens the tins for the cat in your absence. All the best for a speedy recovery!

vic said...

My goodness, sounds like a really bad break. I can imagine that the pain of the break and from the fall must have been really bad and then the inconvenience of not being at home tucked up in your own little bed. Hospitals and care facilities are wonderful and appreciated when the need is acute and home help can't take care of your needs, but home is the best place.

Hope you heal quickly and get back home soon to some tender loving care.

Henny Penny said...

Jo, I am so sorry! I have thought about you and missed you! Glad you have your computer now to enjoy. Take care and I hope your ankle heals really fast.

Janneke said...

Oooh, this sounds really bad. Hope your ankle heals well again, but I understand that takes time..... Wish you all the best!

Nellie said...

Oh, my! Sending wishes for speedy healing, Jo!

Kay G. said...

Oh! I am sorry. Hope you are healing nicely. "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON". I know you can do it!! Take care and stay warm!

Anne F said...

Oh Dear! Oh Dear! I hope you're well on the mend now. I can imagine how you missed the good things in life, like Oliver Cat and a nice cup of tea. So sorry for all the pain and discomfort you've had to go through the past few weeks. Here's to a speedy convalescence and home in time to greet the early signs of spring.

Stella Jones said...

Ouch, ouch, ouch, you poor thing please get well soon. I hope you're not in too much pain now!

Heritage Hall said...

Awwww.... of all people to get such a surprise.... accept it as a time
and opportunity for rest and renewal, Jo dear. A prayer that you will
have an easeful and complete recovery, culminating in a joyful return
to your enchanted cottage and all the tender love it contains...

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Oh no. I'm so sorry to hear that, poor you. Do take great care and whatever you do don't try and rush your treatment just do as the doctors say and take it slowly. Pleased your back on the computer though and in touch with the outside world...

Susie said...

Jo, I have been holding my breathe for fear that something was wrong. Now you have a broken ankle, that is fixed and healing...find out why you black out...that is so much more important. Please take care of yourself. I care about you Jo. Blessings for a full recovery. And soon. xoxo,Susie

Angela Gabhart said...

I wondered why we hadn't heard from you. Prayers are with you for a speedy healing!!!

Ginny said...

Oh no! Speedy recovery!! You need Oliver with you!

Cindy Berry said...

So very sorry. Have missed your wonderful posts. A speedy recovery to you. God bless.

Michael said...

Oh my goodness, Jo! what a shocking thing indeed! So glad you are ok...well, not, totally but it could have been the end of you! It all sounds quite painful so do be careful in your recovery not to overdo it but I am sure the staff there are telling you all that already. You are in good care. Wishing you all the best. You see, times like this, aren't you glad you have blogging to fall back on? :)

Holtonhouse.blogspot.com said...

Oh my goodness gracious. How terrible. Did you faint? I am just as concerned about the CAUSE of the fall as I am about the results of the fall? Please take care of yourself.

Deb said...

Oh my goodness. I must have missed this post. I am so sorry, Jo, to hear of your accident. Sending you well wishes for a quick recovery. xo

Betsy Brock said...

Oh, you poor thing! Scary to pass out like that...hope they figured out the cause and gave some prevention for the future. And your poor ankle...ouch! I hope it heals well and without complication. I'm sure your kitties miss you!

Mel said...

Oh my! I'm just now seeing this but bless you I'm glad you're on the mend!

Flat Creek Farm said...

So sorry to hear this! Could easily happen to any of us! Was just thinking that yours is one of the very first blogs I started following.. way.back.when. Will be thinking of you.. sending prayers for a quick and thorough recovery! -Tammy

Janice Kay Schaub said...

Holy crap, I didn't know. Oh you poor thing. I can not even begin to imagine how you feel. I have been busy and not getting around to visit so I missed this. I am sooooooo sorry. I do hope you are doing better and will be home soon.

Jo said...

Oh no, Jo. I only read of your fall today. I'm so sorry and hope you're on the mend already. I've been rather involved with my dear hubby having Carpal Tunnel surgery in the city. Get well soon. Jo (South Africa)
