Idiots...A Matched Pair!


Bobs 2 arms after The Battle of The Bougainvillea Trim Down. Yes, he had on long sleeves..  Things got better.

8 am Wed. I went outside to take a photo of the papaya fruit to show how big it is and tripped over a paver coming in the gate,


I  hit the corner of the grill and ripped a 2 inch piece of skin loose, with a bruise that is 4 inch by 2 under it, hit my head on the propane tank as  I went down like a giant oak on my back smashing the ferns flat.

I struggled to get up thinking of yelling Help! I have fallen and I can't get up but I knew Bob was not home, and I thought I might have to lay there for an hour or so.

Jake came running to help get in the way but I managed it with clown Jake trying to help. he was so upset wondering why I was in the ferns. MOMMY.. what's wrong, get out of the ferns, can you get up? where is daddy? let me lick that blood off for you....

I drove to urgent care walk in and needed no stitches, and nothing is broken, but I will be Sore for a while and now I can't get in the pool AGAIN... I just got back in a week ago from my eye surgery.   The worst pain of all was how stupid I felt laying in the ferns wondering if I could get up... that and the Tetanus shot.

sorry I am behind in commenting...

Oh, I am so sorry, Sandra. I know you must be so sore today. I'm thankful nothing was broken. With Bob all scratched up, you two could say that you got into a fight with each other! Seriously, hope you feel better soon.

Good morning Sandra! Oh wow, both of you look bad. The bruises and cuts, look bad. It could have been worse. I have learned to look down more while walking, I was tripping a lot. I hope you both feel better soon. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Don't you hate it when growing old gracefully blindsides you. So sorry to hear of your 'episode'. Wishing you and Bob a speedy recovery.

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH NO SANDRA I AM THANKING YOU DIDN'T BREAK ANYTHING AND YOUR HEAD WAS NOT HIT TOO HARD. OUCH TO YOU AND BOB. That looks very painful.
I know how much you love swimming too. Purrs and prayers that you heal quickly.
Hugs Madi and Cecilia

ouch! for both of you! glad it was not more serious! (and yay, jake!)

Rose said...

Oh, Sandra, I am sorry you fell...glad there are no worse injuries...but oh, I have laughed till I cried in how you told the story. I LOVED the parts about clown Jake.

How long will you have to stay out of the pool?

Ouch! Those poor ferns! Lol. Sorry you have a boo boo that will keep you out of the pool. Those bruises look so tender. Get well and enjoy that Florida fall.

Isn't that just how it goes, everything seems to come in one go. Bob's arm looks terrible and I feel for you falling over. The worst thing about falling over now is how to get up. I still can't understand how it happened that I cannot step up onto chairs or get up easily when I kneel down, I'm sure it will all go away soon, (wishful thinking, lol)

I'm so glad you are o.k.! I'm sorry for laughing.

Best,

Oh my gosh and you are still smiling. Be careful - that looks so sore. Sorry.

Ginny Hartzler said...

So glad to see you are laughing!! How do you feel today? Taking any aspirin or anything? When do the bandages come off? Oh my, hitting your head is so bad! But now you will have a good excuse for any future forgetting and or odd behavior. Bob's arm looks awful, it looks like you could just peel those skin flaps totally off. I think he should go around and expose all the pavers so you can both see them from a distance. That could be his new project. So glad I still have my Sis in one piece!

SweetMarie said...

this is awful! I'm so glad it's not worse! how sweet of Jake to try and help you. :) no more playing in your jungle when Bob isn't home. hope you both heal quickly without problems.
hugs,
Marie

Ann said...

OUCH!!!! to both of you. I think the two of you need to stop beating yourselves up. Glad Jake was there to look after you

Gail said...

Bonnie helps Den out of his chair. Jake would have helped too.

Glad you are okay.

Dear Gawd, girlfriend! ... Am I gonna have to come down there are wrap y'all in bubble wrap? :)
Bob's arms look like they're going to be crazy sore tonight. And you? Seriously, I shudder to think how bad things might have been. Glad to see your smile!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my, I'm so sorry. Glad your okay. You guys need to be careful!!! ((Hugs))

Ruth Hiebert said...

Thankfully no bones were broken.You both look rather battle scarred.Hope it all heals well and quickly.

Jo said...

Oh, Sandra, I am so sorry you hurt yourself. And Bob tangling with the bougainvilleas? Tut-tut! I'm glad you're here to tell the tale. Have a great weekend. Jo

Wow oh wow, so glad nothing is broken. Your ouchies look really tender. Speedy recovery.
Poor Ferns....
Not really....
Poor you!

We'll bury you among the ferns when the time comes! LOL My middle toe, same foot, looks similar to yours. Apparently, one should not attempt to move immovable objects with just one toe.
