Well, back to what happened, Paisley and I were out in the yard planning what we wanted to do with our garden this year when I decided to go into the house to get a pen and paper so we could see what it would look like (we are very visual people). When I went to step up on the deck my feet just didn't move and down I went. At least this time I was able to turn my body so I got more of my right side than my front. I called my OB and was told to do kick counts to make sure Ryder was ok, rest with my feet up, drink lots of water, and watch for bleeding. I think Ryder enjoyed this fall because he was moving and shaking like CRAZY! So no worries on the baby front. Also for me, not so lucky. Not even a full week out of the brace for my wrist and it started to swell again and my shoulder really hurt. So the next day I called the doctor again to report that Mr. Ryder was fine and to see if I should be seen for my shoulder. He advised that I get it looked at just to be on the safe side. So I went in and the diagnoses is: dislocated shoulder and fractured collar done. I am not sporting a very fashionable black sling for the next three weeks and can take Tylenol for the pain as needed.

Earlier this week I fell again. Family and friends would like it better if I either: bubble wrapped myself, locked myself in a padded room or got a motorized scooter to get around. My goal is to try to keep my feet under me all on my own.
