I Got Hurt

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I am fast: fast at almost anything I do. Yesterday I was on a ladder at my space hanging some things and left the hammer on top. When I moved the ladder the hammer feel off and hit me in the head. There was a lot of blood and my colleague froze and ran away. Fortunately there was a nurse in the shop who put pressure on it. It still hurts but I think I will survive. It was a long night but I won't be on any ladders for awhile. 

The nurse went home with a gift of her choice from my space, and I went home knowing I need to slow it down.

Hope you heal quickly!

I've gained a certain paranoia about ladders over the years.  One of our cats lives in our garage's loft area, so she has her own litterbox, food, water, bed, etc. up there.  So daily trips standing on the ladder and the top of the spare refrigerator scooping the box.  I know I need to be a bit cautious to prevent a tumble.  Bill

Good morning,  Sheila - get yourself to the doctor to make sure all is okay. And do it as fast as you can.

Sheila,

I am sorry you had a bad experience with that ladder and hammer. But I am glad that you are OK.  I have found that the older I get, the more cautious I have to be.

Oh no!  I often find as I get tired, I get a bit more careless. Hammers on a ladder are a recipe for an accident - it's happened to me too, but fortunately no blood. I'm hoping that you are taking it easy and will see a doctor if you feel the need.

Oh No! OUCH!  Do be careful.  Like Bill, I have a bit of paranoia about ladders. I rarely get on any kind of a step stool or ladder when I am alone.  And, when I do I am VERY careful with every step. 

Hope you heal quickly and don't have any lingering effects.

Morning Sheila.

My goodness girl!  I bet it will be a long time before you climb up or down a ladder.  Good to know it didn't send you to the hospital

You're very lucky, Sheila. When I am on a ladder, I'm like Carol Williams and I carefully take each step. Because one misstep and you're hurt big-time on the ground. I don't have to learn from my own mistakes.
