Watch Your Step
Today's title seems a natural to follow yesterday's "Walk This Way". The similarity ends there.
I am issuing a caution to all who are associated with me to "watch their step".
This might sound superstitious, but in case there is any truth to Six Degrees of Separation, step lightly. Too many coincidences lately to people I love.
My husband, Jon, fell a month ago breaking his kneecap and injuring is foot.
My friend, Karen, fell Friday and broke a bone in her foot. While she was hospitalized, her grandson was treated at the same hospital's ER for an injured foot....then his mom slipped and tore a tendon in her ankle.
Tomorrow we are going to visit Jon's 95 yr. old aunt who fell and thankfully didn't break anything.
This summer we are cheered on Jon's cousin as she recovers from foot surgery.
The summer started with our thirteen-year-old granddaughter falling from her bike and breaking a wrist and elbow. She didn't hurt her feet.
My sister just had wrist surgery and another friend also named Karen is recovering from hand surgery.
Today when Jon visited his podiatrist regarding his slowly healing foot, the Doctors nurse who has helped us this past month was hobbling out on crutches. She had fallen and broken a bone in her foot.
Careful out there. Even the caregivers are going to ground.
