Excellent thoughts above Joanna.

On a completely different topic, just made my absolute best version of Eggplant Parmigiana ever, scrumptious (my italian mother in law will be proud)

I can only assume it means..... that people who genuinely do God's work in this life
don't earn much money but get their reward in the afterlife, according to the Scriptures.

Post by pattygirl on Thu Jul 12 2012, 02:06

Hey, everyone!

First, thanks for you good wishes. Really appreciate them.
Got my daughter to bring my laptop. HERE'S THE SCOOP:
July 4th we had a barbeque at my house. Granddaughter and her husband were in from NM. When everyone left (except them), i was just walking in the house. Took a step, heard a snap and fell flat on my face. The snap was my femur snapping. (same thing happened 5 yrs. ago with other leg). Well, naturally I landed on my nose, that smarts. Well, the leg pain was excrutiating. The Fire Dept. Ambulance was called and got me to hospital where I spent about 6 hrs. in ER while they too x-rays, tests, etc. Admitted to a room at 2 am. It was 3 days until they operated. They put a rod into my femur. My leg is full of staples and rather sore, but nothing compared to the original pain. Yesterday, I started using a walker (with help) and first day I walked about 5 or 6 feet. Today they took me to the REHAB gym to be evaluated for admittance to REHAB. I managed between 40 and 50 feet and everyone said I did well. Just hope I get into rehab at hospital as opposed to another rehab facility.
Orthopedic Dr. told me that they called these FOSAMAX FRACTURES.
They are atypical fractures caused by prolonged use of fosamax type drugs, which are supposed to prevent typical fractures to various bones. As the femur is considered the strongest bone in the body, it doesn't fracture often or easily.

I am doing quite well right now. Spent from 9 am to about 8 pm sitting in a chair. Just before letting you girls in on my predicament, I was tucked in bed, and here I sit. Probably won't do too much more.

Again, thanks, cindigirl, Joanna, it'me, and anybody else. Will talk again soon.

Hello pattygirl...good to hear from you and to know you've got some communication with the outside world again.
Not sure laptops/mobiles are allowed in our NHS hospitals....shucks

Hope you mend quickly and remember to keep on the move
as much as you can during the day.

Take care flower

Hi Pattygirl, What a horrific accident. I cant imagine the pain you were in and am hoping you are out of it now; or at least on some really good drugs. You are in my prayers for a painless, speedy and complete recovery. God Bless ~

@ Cinderella, I do miss a good thunderstorm with lots of lightning cracks across the sky. Enjoy it for me !

pattygirl, you said it's called a Fosamax fracture from the use of a drug that is supposed to strengthen bones? WTF! are our drug companies selling us!

Suggest you contact an attorney! This is why I abhor taking any prescription medications and try to find either natural herbal or food sources for my issues! Geez!!! That sucks!

Hope you feel better soon!

That's a very generous cream tea you've got there Joanna. Are you inviting all of us to join you?

That reminds me of something I found online yesterday (I was searching for gifts to give to our guests at Christmas and it was on a website): ladies, may I present you the terrorist teapot, a teapot with a balaclava style tea cosy.

A joke for those who may need a laugh today




SCOTTISH COMPASSION

A man was sitting on a blanket at the beach. He had no arms and no legs.

Three women, from England , Wales , and Scotland , were walking past and felt sorry for the poor man.

The English woman said 'Have you ever had a hug?' The man said 'No,' so she gave him a hug and walked on.

The welsh woman said, 'Have you ever had a kiss?' The man said, 'No,' so she gave him a kiss and walked on.

The Scottish woman came to him and said, 'ave ya ever been fooked laddie?'
The man broke into a big smile and said, ‘no’.

She said, 'Aye - Ya will be when the tide comes in.'

ps Joanna, lovely photos

"Denver shooting at Batman premiere, latest
A masked gunman has shot dead at least 14 people and wounded upto 50 others at a showing of new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises at a suburban cinema in Denver."



What a terrible thing to happen to young people on a night out.
Have we any members here in the Aurora area of Denver ?
Thinking about all the people who got caught up in this
dreadful happening.
I understand the police have got the gunman.

So sad. I always thought there was too much violence and action in some films today that attract the young and unstable kids. If I had my way there would be no guns in households.

If someone is so angry about their own life why take other people's lives, just take his own and get it over and done with, is my opinion.
