    Deep,
    You'll know you are in your next period of life when you ask yourself: Why was I on the stairs in the first place?

    Very glad you are ok.
    You are blessed, that could have gone so wrong in so many ways.
    Its a good thing you have a hard head. I mean that in a good way.

    And now you have entered the tortoise phase, slow & careful.
    The rest of us are already there.

    The medical bills are good for, eye exercises, cardio, & breathing exercises.
    Your eyes bug out & blood pressure and heart rate shoots right up there when you open it and see the outrageous amout you're being charged, then you scream & yell about it.

    See that, a days work out, and you didn't even have to go to the gym!
    Multiply that by several bills, and you'll be running marathons.

    Whenever I go see my doc I'm am asked "Have you fallen in the past year?"
    Thing is it's very common because we aren't the same as we were. It's easy to forget that.
    Physical activity might help slow this down but that's not a medical opinion. But can't hurt.

    Mac, being 95 I always approach the stair with a challenging and questive attitude - sooner or later the stairs will win

    got me to thinking,
    what is the age distribution of TN members?
    is there a correlation between age and posting frequency?

    I too am old, 74, and one of my more memorable experiences was visiting with some people in their 70s and 80s while I was in my late 50s.
    The entire time was spent talking of illnesses, with regrets for taking early ss. No other topic.

    One will learn prudence, but the falling is inevitable. (Have 2 holes in my skull to relieve pressure, with no memory of a fall !)
    As DADS said, be careful.

    Sorry to hear that, Deep. Hoping it's all behind you. Around here, the problem is winter ice. Took a bad fall a year ago..damaging my sacro-iliac joint. Took several months to heal. Could easily have been a broken hip. Take care out there, everybody.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    I'm NOT elderly!!!! Geez, won't be 70 until this July 4th at 5:55 PM.

    Everybody always said I was hard headed, and at least I was rubber necked!

    The wound on my right cheek is still scabbed up, and both ears are a little deformed from their healing wounds. My surgeon sure was pretty, in fact absolutely gorgeous - so there has been a little pleasure out of this....

    Just how else would I get to interact with a lady like that these days?

    Obviously there were no injuries to your sense of humor. Hope the rest of you recovers just as quickly.

    My doc suggested compression socks for my varicose veins. So I got some and wear them unless I am out wading in the Bay for fossils. But the synthetic things are slippery as heck and I nearly slid down the wood stairs my first time wearing them.

    And thanks for another one of your warnings to the rest of us!

    Fortunately I'm just a bit uglier, and otherwise all is well. I DO take the stairs very carefully now. Still haven't received any bills from the hospital. I certainly showed my VA card to everyone who would listen. From what I read on the VA website, they'll take care of this - hope so as I can only imagine what the bills would be.

    Trust me Deep, you don't want to know what the bills add up to....you could own your own planet, and space corps.
