Down for the Count

My apologies for the sudden and prolonged silence here recently. I wanted to touch base to let you all know at least a little bit of what’s going on.

As I have mentioned before, I use a wheelchair, but I still have some mobility. This means that I still stand and walk if the distance is short enough, for instance from my car to my front door. Sadly, attempting to do exactly that led to a really bad fall when my system crashed and I fell onto the pavement of my driveway, hitting my head in the process and dislocating my lower spine again which led to temporary loss of feeling and use in my legs. One was out for over 2 hours, the other didn’t regain feeling and function until the next morning. Both still function with a bad limp after just a few steps or a couple minutes of standing even though the accident was over 2 weeks ago.

I am doing ok now, but fighting off the residual effects of the fall and the injuries so have had to refocus my energy and efforts accordingly. I hope to be back to writing again soon, but for now I need to be there for my boys and rest where I can so I can regain some strength and stability. Times like these make me grateful for the support system I have in place here locally. I didn’t always have help so I am very appreciative for it now.

I look forward to catching up with everyone soon and to being more active again in both writing and local advocacy. In the meantime, I hope you are all doing well. Feel free to leave me comments to let me know how things are going in your neck of the woods. I promise to read and respond to each one I receive. 🙂
