Today -this morning I walked with just one walking buddy. We left from a different car park and that made it a bit longer. We walked 4 miles on the rail trail.
We walked for 90 minutes and I had over 10,000 steps by noon and tonight I have 16479. My body is feeling it.
I did the walk I came home and baked and did the pool and some yard work. Around 4pm I had still not spun the wheel-very rarely do I do that. I do my fasting blood sugar then the wheel. I was about to go to the computer and I heard a dog b ark and a bang an d a moan. DH was getting out of his chair , the dog went by so DH tripped over the dog and landed on the wooden floor hitting his elbow and his lower ribs.
Our son was about o leave for work but he came upstairs and saw DH lying on the floor clutching his chest. DS was looking worried and asked what happened, do you think it is a heart attack I said NO he fell over the poor dog. The dag was looking at us as if we were going to scold him.
I put a Pillow under DH Head and he was moving his arm . His arm was bleeding but he moved it so I asked him to lie flat. DS and I were going to call an ambulance but DH started to try to get up. I suggested he should take some breaths to see if the ribs are hurt badly. He was getting over the shock , DS and I helped him up and he sat in a chair. Only then did we see there was a cut and a round place that was just the skin oozing. I put on band aids an d our son had to go to work or call in. DH and I said he should go and we appreciated his help.
DH and I sat in our chairs to watch NETFLIX- "Call the MIDWIFE" B.B.C. production.
Just minutes in to the movie our GS came in saying his lap top had broken. He had tried to fix it but he stripped the screws. We needed replacement screws. DH and DIL were in the house so I went with GS to several store and eventually we bought 4 of each screw he needed just in case the others stripped.
I gave DH his supper in his chair watching Jeopardy. We never do that but we had the lap top on our table so it worked for us.
GS was getting very frustrated and frankly so was I because I was able to get the screws out using artery forceps.-great tools they are, but we could not get in to put the screws back.
DS called his mother and using speaker phone he fixed his computer.
He and I had dinner at 9 pm and that was when I tried to get to my laptop. DS had his mother send the entire PDF to show him how to do it and he did using my tablet.
Now it is after 11pm and I have barely begun so I will leave you with my complicated day.
DH is in bed and I will be there very soon. Pat in Maine.
