Doris' Injury

Postby allaboutshooting » February 17th, 2014, 11:49 pm

On Saturday morning Doris slipped in the shower and was badly injured. If you know her, you know that she's very tough and never likes to admit that she's hurt.

She hit her head and ribs very hard. Hard enough that when I learned of the injury, we sought professional help. It was bad. She had a severe contusion to her forehead and rib cage area.

The professionals examined her and did not believe that she had a concussion, gave her ice packs to apply to her forehead and advised that I keep an eye on her and ask her to refrain from strenous activities.

I did my best to do that but it was difficult. Since we've been home, we've consulted with our family medical docotor and I'm trying to keep her from overexerting herself. She's also supposed to keep her cognitavie skills to a minimum.

Doris is the toughest person I know. I've seen her endure some very severe pain and never admit that it hurt at all. She's a stoic.

This could have been much worse that it was but frankly, it's very bad.

Your thoughts and prayers will be appreciated.

Thank you,

"Ouch" that doesn't sound good. Keep an eye on her Clark, your both in our prayers for a fast recovery.

I spent 2 days with her in the booth after the fall, and you'd never know anything was wrong.....not the first complaint, or sign of any distress or pain, and an acknowledgement that it happened only if you brought it up. I tried my best to help, but my medical skills are weak; Girl Scout Cookies only go so far!
Just know that I'm thinking about you both, and hoping everything will be ok!!!

I'm thinking healing thoughts for Doris, Clark. After going through the head injury thing myself, I'd suggest that Doris stay away from bright lights and consider wearing sun glasses. I hope she gets to feeling better soon.

Luck Counts, good or bad
