I almost didn't have a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all. Today was especially good for me because I survived a very bad fall
from my Hoveround power chair on Sunday evening, and could have been a gonner. I wound up in the ER with a bad head bump and a gash requiring stitches in my leg. The cat scan said my head was okay, and the leg was patched up, but it was scary, and were it not for my Lifeline call button I could be lying on the floor in the corner of my dining room still. It was one of the scariest close calls I've had, and there have been several. My right leg has three stitched wounds, all requiring ambulance rides, and this latest one was to my left leg. I know God's been trying to get me to slow down, but as much as I try to cooperate, I keep barreling forward. I'm 69 but my head says 39. That's a big age gap to deal with, and I haven't figured it out yet. It also seems I'm not alone with this condition. Almost everyone of my peers that I talk to are going through the same thing. We're not only young at heart but young of mind as well! Who would have thought I'd still be attending Weight Watcher meetings at my age, blogging on a health and weight loss site like Spark People and still trying to lose weight? Didn't expect to be using a wheelchair either, but I am.
I didn't start out to write this blog about this subject, but as so often happens, it goes where its supposed to go and says what its supposed to say. a lot like life, right? The good news is that I put on a new long cotton knit lounge gown for today's brunch with the kids, and the smaller size that I had ordered over a month ago, before the arrival of all the holiday goodies fit me!!!YES IT DID! That made my day and inspired me to keep on keeping on into the new year, setting goals and going forward while I am still blessed with life!
A HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL
