Apparently, "I've fallen and I can't get up" was something deeply hilarious, a few years back. I never quite got why it was so funny, myself, and having just had my mother in precisely that position, I find it even less amusing than I did to start with. I'm sure it's just my defective sense of humour, of course.
The fun thing is, I wrenched my back at one stage, lifting her, and was darn near in the same condition myself.
So my activities have been severely curtailed, lately, not just online! - But things improve. I am able to sit and type comfortably for short periods, and my mother was fit enough yesterday to go to a funeral (not her own).
They say these things come in threes, don't they? First a badger eats a junction box and puts my connection out of action (or whatever it was), then my mother's fall, now my back. Well, hopefully, that is three over and done with and I can get back to normal.... and, once RL is properly sorted out, I can address the SL commitments which have been piling up!
(Neither of us is in any real danger, I hasten to add. Just massively inconvenienced, and, in my case, slightly woozy still from codeine.)
Anyway, there we are. Or aren't. As the case may be.
