I obviously wasn’t concentrating on what I was doing.
I was out for my usual early morning walk and I had a bit of a mishap. I tripped on a tree root and fell forward. I was on a downhill slope. I put my hands out to save myself and in doing so I have damaged my humerus, which I might say is not at all funny.
I have broken a bit off the top end of the bone but it is still quite close to the bone so doesn’t require surgery just a long period of waiting for it to heal.
I was lucky I wasn’t too far from home as I was walking in the Metung Bushland Reserve and once I had calmed myself down I was able to walk back home.
I will now certainly be restricted in what I can do for a few weeks as it was my right arm that was damaged.
Enforced relaxation. Lots of reading and when I start my walks again I will stick to footpaths for a little while.

Oh dear,glad you do not require surgery! I guess it will put a stop to your knitting projects.Is the arm in a sling? Get well soon Heather.Lots of love Kate and Leon
Yes it is in a sling. I can’t really do much at the moment as it is still very sore. I did ask the specialist if it was ok to knit and he said it would be fine as long as I could manage it. It is just over a week since I fell and I managed a couple of rows of knitting today. Thanks for your kind wishes. Love Heather
Oh my, I hope you can heal up quickly and totally.
Thank you. I am slowly on the mend.
Get well soon!
Thank you. It is a slow process.
I’m so sorry to hear that, it must have been very painful. I hope you’re mending well.
Thanks Lorna. I saw the specialist yesterday and the bone is fusing nicely.
I’m delighted to hear it.
