I Fell Down

Really, the only time I'm on my feet is when transferring from one seat or position to another. Even then, the gait belt is on.

I lost my balance, or slipped, or buckled during a transfer in to bed.

Amanda, never letting go of the belt, tried to break my fall. I hit the corner of my nightstand on the way down, and received this scratch (right).

Even though it looks pretty bad, my pain level was negligible, so we patched it up and went to bed.

A day later I was pissing blood. Someone with a title that ends in -ologist can tell you what organ I hurt; I think it's my oil filter.

Things are back to normal now, though the scratch and some wicked bruises remain.


  1. Oh Tony you made me laugh with the oil filter, you have one heck of a sense of humour. It does look nasty hope you not in too much pain

  2. Hey Tony! Good job on the bruise, I guess if your gonna do it, do it right. My name is Jeff Little. I'm a friend of your dad's and wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I'm praying daily for you and your family. John speaks so highly of you and your courage! I will be attending the 3k walk with John and Pauline. Maybe I'll see you there. As I'm told by my friends....keep on keeping on.....I hope to meet you soon. Until then head up, your surrounded by so many people who love and care for you, never forget it! Until next time
    2Thessalonians 5:23,24
    Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

  3. Tony,
    Clumsy ass!...I think of you often and keep you and the family in my prayers. I'm glad your spirits are up. I have contacted Coach to get a good number or at least email for you. I am in and out of the county a lot right now as you could imagine. If you get this before I get you, my email is you brother! K Jones.
