Thank you to everyone who has been sending wishes after my accident. It has been really appreciated and than you to those who have reached out to keep in touch and check I am OK. I finally gave in, listening to concerned friends, and went to the doctor’s, so this is an update.
As a recap, 4 weeks ago, I went out for a nice, calming, relaxing walk after work to clear my head. There is a park 5-10 mins walk from my home, so I visited the park. I was looking around, enjoying the views. The birdsong was beautiful 😍 so I was looking up, searching the trees for a peek at the owners of these lovely voices … and fell off the edge of the pavement.
What I thought was a bad sprain, possibly pulled muscles etc, it turns out I’ve fractured a bone in my wrist. I’m not sure how long it’s going to take my wrist to recover. My doctor is now referring me to the fracture clinic but they’ll hopefully leave my wrist to repair itself.
Meantime, my wrist is in a splint and I’m trying very hard not to use my left hand – fortunately I’m right handed, but that doesn’t help with typing. I’m glad I’ve decided to experiment with voice dictation … or I need an assistant 😁
Thank you again, everyone for your positive messages ❤️🩹
