MS FALLS, KNEES DAMAGED, MEDICS TO RESCUE

Wouldn't you know I fell again!? I told my caregiver to step back, so full of myself! In an instant both of us were ecstatic that I was finally transferring my own body again  and then BAM, both knees just gave out, both of us horrified.

It was 3AM and there I was trapped between my heavy power chair and the ceramic thrown. The poor carer pulled with all his might (I had the bruises to show it, in fact the knee scraping was due to his and the summoned medics trying to lift me up! The medics finally lifted my chair away and two of them got me seated back in my chair,) but I was stuck between too heavy devices. He couldn't release his grip on me to call the medics and my wife (nope, don't care for the sound of that) my spouse was sound asleep.

Finally he laid me down and five firemen arrived. Immediately they went for my wrists and having had them give me radial nerve palsy for 6 months before by "wrist lifting" I quickly took over and shouted how to pick me up.

Within 15 minutes it was all over except bruises and two badly scraped knees. How lucky am I to never break a bone? To never hit me head? VERY LUCKY

Both knees good as new now. MS strikes again! Back to the gym, young lady.
