I am very sorry that I have not been posting or sharing anything with you over the past week.
But this morning is the first time I am trying to stay off the pain medicine since the 21st of March 2022…
Lian, Zany and I took Willow to the beach that morning. Willow has been in a very protective mood the weeks before. She only allows certain people near me. And even comes between Mornè and I when comes to visit.
Anyway, she was okay while we played in the water and nobody was near us. After walking about 3 km we turned around and head back to the car. About 1.5km back in she looked back and before I know it she started charging these two Cocker Spaniels.
In the process she spinned me around, I lost my balance, heard a snap snap sound hit the ground and she dragged me for about 2 meters could be more,before Lian could catch her.
I held on to that leash for dear life. I knew if I let go she would be gone. Only when Lian said he hed her did I let go. Lying in the sand in so much pain I wanted to pass out. I put on my brave face and tried to get up. But I could not. I knew this feeling all to well a repeat of 1990 and 1997 again. Torn ligaments I told myself. Take as much weight off the leg I reminded myself.
Well we still had 1.5km to walk to get to the car….
Lian took Willow, and Zany and I followed at a snails pase. We made it to the car. I felt like passing out but I didn’t. I got into the back and tried to get as comfortable as possible. But I could not sit…. I had to sit like the children today on their backs….
When we got home I took a hot bath with some muscle relaxer to try and ease the pain. But that did not really work.
I went to the doctor the next day and he confirmed that I tore ligaments and my hamstring. He gave me some heavy pain medicine and told me to try and stay off the leg….
I know the drill, been through it twice before. Both times it was my right leg this time left leg… Now I am catching up on my movies on my hard drive.
I am posting from my phone so please excuse my grammar and spelling mistakes. I do want to try to sit in a chair today if it is only for 15 minutes.
For those of you who visited my blog over the last week Thank you very much. My stats for my page has gone from great to well not that great. But as soon as I am able to sit and edit, I can start bombarding you with my work again….
They say things happens in three’s but people I am at five….
