Though nothing as serious as JP's mother, I fell down the steps in our house this morning and am pretty banged up. Nothing was broken, but I hurt all over and I'm unable to put any weight on my right leg.

Praying for you, VH-Tiger!
Thanks everyone. I'm really amazed that the fall didn't do more damage to this old body (I'm 67). The shoulder is much better, and I keep working it to keep it from tightening up. The right leg though seems to be worsening, as I can no longer straighten it, much less put weight on it. If it takes another operation, I'm going to seriously look at knee replacements for both legs.
Hang in there vh! Be careful with knee replacements, my grandmother is much worse off now than before hers.
Fearless and true.
Praying for you.

I pray things are looking up this morning vh. Keep the faith and know that we tough old Tigers are pulling for you. Keep us posted big guy. WDE!!!
Thanks for the prayers everyone. Throughout yesterday and last night, I used some exorcizes i learned in earlier therapy sessions. When I woke up this morning, my range of motion was greatly increased and I was able stand without pain. I'm staying away from the steps today, but I can at least move around a bit as long as I use my cane and move slowly. It looks like I can avoid more surgeries and that is a miracle.
I know many people who have had knee replacements. Going on strong now. The doctor chosen is very key. many good ones in b''ham. If you find you want names give me a PM. Until then, You are certainly in my prayers. I don't want to hear you having this pain, my friend.
