I'm down for the count

Tucson,  AZ

Welcome to TrailerCamper from Seattle!  Glad to see you both here.

This has not been the healthiest crew at this NOMADS project.   Betsy has an ongoing breathing issue which makes it impossible for her to work.   Cheryl was not feeling well and had a constant cough.  She finally went to the Urgent Care Center and found she has bronchitis.   She is feeling better this week but is not completely healed.   Paul started feeling bad on Saturday.   Mary Lou took him to Urgent Care this morning.  He has pneumonia.   No more working on this project for him.

I was feeling great!   BUT - coming out of the fiver after lunch today, one leg of the platform (yes the one we needed to get because of the screw up with our steps) collapsed when I stepped down on to it.   I fell twisting my right ankle and scraping the front of my left leg on the platform.

So to Urgent Care I went also.   I am now on crutches.   My left leg has a large gash and is taped with bandages.  My right leg is wrapped in an Ace bandage and is swollen and sprained.   In addition my left wrist is swollen and bruised where I came down on it.    I ache, but not a lot.   But - no more work for me this week either.

Who is left to work?    Leonard, Janet, Jim, Del and Bill who was sick yesterday and still not really up to par.    The ceiling will get done - provided no more accidents, sickness, etc.

Sorry to hear about your fall but glad you at least didn't break anything. I'll bet you are going to be good and sore for awhile though. The only bright side, I guess, is you won't have to work! Take it easy and rest up!

So sorry to hear about your fall! I hope you get those new steps soon so you can go in and out of your fiver without difficulty. Feel better soon!! :)

Wow, Phyllis, hope you are all right, I know from my own experience it hurts more now to fall than it did 20 years ago, And then the first thing you do is look around and make sure nobody saw that stunt.Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna...

I'm so sorry to hear about your fall. You'll be sore for awhile. Take it easy and rest up. Put an ice pack on the swelling. I hope you are feeling better soon.
