Continuing my streak of bad luck lately, I fell down half a flight of stairs today and mucked up my ankle/knee/hip/shoulder on the bad hip side. So, 10 puncture wounds on bruises from vein closure on left leg; twisted ankle, rug burns, sore knee, hip, ankle and hip on right side. I’m a freaking mess! (I’ll be okay, but man, this crap needs to stop.)
