I spent this afternoon making a huge batch of Shepherd’s pie. I had one in the oven, and working on the second one, when I heard a crash. Hubby had fallen.
He was slumped on the floor. His legs had given out. There was blood on the carpet. I helped him into a sitting position, and then grabbed a towel to stop the flow of blood from his elbow.
I then helped him closer to the recliner. With his 4 prong cane, and me, I was able to get him up.
I cleaned his elbow, also his knee, and was so pleased that it was on the carpeted area, and not the tiled floor.
I got the blood out of the carpet, finished the second Shepherd’s pie, and did 8 vegetables in the Instant pot. Made gravy, and ate dinner.
I have stopped shaking now. Hubby has the cane sitting next to him, and as this isn’t the first time, he is not going anywhere without it.
Thank goodness we were home.
