Injury Update

Thank you to everyone who have left get well wishes. As most of you know I had an injury at school while dealing with a renagade child who decided that he needed to leave his classroom. (See Tuesday) This is the quick version of what happened. I was filling in in another classroom and we were getting the kids ready for lunch when said child decided to leave the room. So off I went after him out the door and down the hall -as he got ready to turn the corner I reached out to grab him and tripped, falling forward and hitting my head on the wall, as I fell I also twisted my back. BUT I still had a hold of the darling child! My principal heard me hollering and came to my rescue. Skip to what the Workman's Comp. Dr. said. I have a contusion on my head and a sprained back. I will go back tomorrow for a follow up to see how I'm doing plus I may have to have some physical therapy. Who knows??? I stayed home yesterday due to stiffness and my head was still tender. I did go back today but it was slooooooooooooow going. No kids tomorrow so I'll have a quiet day! I'll be back kicking soon--thanks again for all your concern, it means a lot!! ~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. Girl, you had quite the fall. Hope the student was reprimanded for a very unwise choice. Take care, listen to the Docs ( don't we all just think we are superwomen) and let Mr. Ken dote on you. Milk it sister!

    Have a good weekend and get to feelin' better! God bless
