On November 1st, the subject of my blog post was how to avoid falling. On November 12th, Peter fell. I was in the kitchen when I heard the sound of a crash coming from our study. He said he was fine. He had just fallen over. He had not hit his head.
But two days later, he was in the hospital with a diagnosis of four broken ribs and internal bleeding that required a blood transfusion and an eight-day stay.
He’s much better now, to our great relief.
Once more, we have dodged a bullet. Now, with a blizzard in our weather forecast, a pandemic in our country, and an uncertain future, I am glad I have him here with me to dodge more.
